What do back pain, neck pain, headaches, and constipation have in common, besides making you feel awful? They are symptoms that can arise with compromised posture resulting from fascial restrictions and a weakened core.
Your core is generally thought of as the deep and superficial muscles in your pelvic floor and abdomen, but fascially, the core runs from the inner foot arch and toes all the way to the tongue and jaw by means of the groin, psoas (hip flexor), and diaphragm! This myofascial structure holds the midline and organs of the upper body and head.
When your midline is weak, you are not receiving 360º support for your organs and upper body, so gravity pulls them down. The spine overworks to keep you upright and this hypertonicity frequently results in neck and back pain, as well as headaches. Also, low core tone can often be accompanied by low visceral tone and sluggish organ and bowel function.
Exercises that activate your core in length give you optimal tone and function. Pilates, Yoga, and Core Toning are all excellent ways to good posture and pain relief.
