Core Stability Testing
This is an assessment of the length and strength of muscles that control the lower back. It is a way to understand why back pain keeps returning and is often performed on sportsmen and women in order to help them perfect control of their game and assist people with lumbar disc injuries. Broadly, key muscles are observed for relative length and strength by comparing with their opposite numbers. With this completed, the patient is then given a series of exercises to either strengthen or lengthen specific muscles.
