As anyone who has read our blog knows, we are big fans of core stability. Improving your body's ability to stabilize movements and effectively transfer forces is of essential importance for people concerned with spinal health. But the same could be said for your pelvis- one of the most crucial junctions in the entire body rarely comes in for the attention it deserves and truly needs. This blog will argue that establishing pelvic stability should become a priority in your life.
Think about all the joints in the pelvic region:
Pelvic stability means that all the muscles in this region are strong and able to prevent excessive movement from destabilizing the balance of joints in the region. While each of these joints obviously needs to move, excessive movement will create problems, especially for the spine. The fact is, the pelvis is the anchor of your upper body and thus your spine- if it is moving around without any stabilization, then the base of your spine has no stability either. This instability has ramifications in every movement you make. No matter who you are, pelvic stability is important for preventing injury in all types of activity.
A stable pelvis complements a stable core, forming the essential components of the framework which supports your spine. If you are interested in finding out more about simple ways to improve pelvic stability, give our office in Park Slope a call to schedule an appointment today.
