Flashcards in Core Stabilization Deck (17):
What is the aim of core stabilization?
LEARN TO CONTROL POSITION OF LUMBAR SPINE
DURING DYNAMIC MOVEMENT
TRUE or FALSE
The lumbar spine is inherently unstable, and requires constant CNS feedback allowing refinement of movement.
Lumbar and trunk structures work together to do what?
PROPERLY DISTRIBUTE FORCES
GENERATE MAXIMUM FORCE with MINIMUM COMPRESSION
Stabilization is defined as: maintaining the spine in a __________, ___________, ________ _______ position through continuous fine adjustments in muscle tension in response to fluctuation loads.
SAFE, NEUTRAL, PAIN FREE
The core's muscular box is as follows:
____________ in the front
____________ and _____________ in the back
____________ as the roof
____________ and _____________ as bottom
front - ABDOMINALS
back - PARASPINALS and GLUTEALS
roof - DIAPHRAGM
bottom - PELVIC FLOOR and HIP GIRDLE
Name the 5 stabilizing global muscles that control the lumbar spine?
2. RECTUS ABDOMINUS
3. INTERNAL / EXTERNAL OBLIQUES
4. LATERAL QL
Name the 4 stabilizing deep segmental muscles that control the lumbar spine?
2. TRANSVERSE ABDOMINALS
3. DEEP EXTERNAL ROTATORS
4. DEEP PORTION QL
Why are the global muscles unable to stabilize individual spinal segments except through compressive loading?
LITTLE / NO DIRECT ATTACHMENT TO VERTEBRAE
Deep muscles attached to each spinal segments provide what?
so inert tissues not stressed
"Setting the Core" stability training involves learning to co-contract which 3 muscles?
What is the name of the technique used for "setting the core"?
DRAWING IN MANEUVER
Name the technique used to activate TrA and other muscles including external and internal obliques?
An increase in intra-abdominal pressure and tension on the TL fascia is from co-contraction of what?
The ____ ________ wraps around the spine, so the resulting tension of the co-contraction of TrA + IO produces compressive and stabilizing forces on the lumbar spine.
To stabilize the L-spine, the co-contraction of which 3 muscles should occur before any limb movement?
(same as setting the core)
The deep trunk muscles are trained for ____________ at low level force with ____________ contractions.
