More often than not when we have back pain, one familiar reason it seems to be put down to is “weak core muscles”. This can be what leads to so many people attending Pilates classes and searching the internet for ‘core’ exercises, however we can often be left disappointed if we find that these “core” exercises do not help our back pain after a period of time.
Have you been told you have a “weak core”? If so then how was this theory proven? What tests why done? Just because we suffer from back pain it shouldn’t be assumed that the ‘core’ is a weak. Sometimes by carrying out ‘core’ exercises to strengthen our assumed weak core we could actually make our back pain worse!
