New technology images deep muscular corset

At Toormina Physio we  are using real time ultrasound, as a feedback tool to teach and retrain how to contract the deep muscular corset. This ultrasound is used to view the deep muscular corset muscles and shows the muscular contractions (or lack of muscular contraction!). Using this technology may help you to visualize the activation of your deep muscular corset muscles.

Why is the deep muscular corset so important?

The deep muscular corset helps to protect your spine from injury and works to stabilize all movement. In individuals who have never experienced low back pain, the deep muscular corset turns on or pre-activates (starts working) prior to movement of your arms or legs. It has been shown in the literature that the function of the deep muscular corset may be stopped or altered, in the presence of pain. In individuals with low back pain, this pre-activation is delayed or in many cases, absent. Current research is demonstrating the importance of retraining the deep muscular corset after an episode of low back pain.
