A focus for almost every spinal injury is core and spinal stability training. From the low back all the way up to the neck there are hundreds of tiny muscles in the spine that attach from vertebrae to vertebrae. Larger muscles pull on these foundation muscles. Subluxation or injury is more likely to occur if the foundation or your spine is weak. When not in regular use muscles of the core and spine tend to atrophy or become inactive. People who sit at a desk or are inactive most of the day are almost certain to have a weak core and spine as a component of their condition. Clients that have a strong core and muscles around the spine tend to have fewer injuries, and when they do they return back to optimum quicker.
You will receive specific exercises for affected areas if your injury is an extremity such as shoulder or knee . Your progress will be gradual and move slowly to more difficult exercises if you are recovering from surgery. A weak core and spine can negatively affect your recovery so core and spinal exercise will nearly always be part of your rehabilitative program.
