Myths about Core Training & Back Pain

The Master Responds

Having treated spine dysfunctions for over 16 years, I have heard and seen all kinds of myths people have about the ‘core’ and how that relates to back pain.

Most people will have heard about the core and how training it can prevent back pain. But the measures they apply it to overcome back pain,are often faulty. I frequently use a method which I refer to as ‘core stabilization’ or ‘core activation’, to reduce back pain and to ensure that the pain does not return. However, over the years I have realized that the core means different things to different people. More often than not, this misunderstanding leads people to do ‘core training exercises’ that actually worsen their back pain and occasionally lead to an irreversible spine issue.
