COR Strength Screen Part 1 COR Strength Screen Part 1

This is part 1 of our screening process for core strength and function. Posture, breathing, and back and pelvic issues are what we look for as part of our screen. Determining a cause for a weak core is an important part of the process.

COR Strength Screen Part 2 COR Strength Screen Part 2

Part 2 of our core screening process is about how we use diagnostic ultrasound to assess core function. When the core muscles thicken they are contracting. Through different actions we test to see if the core is activating.

Weak core after abdominal surgery Weak core after abdominal surgery

Following a ruptured appendix, abdominal surgery and an infection my core was not working. This limited my ability to hike and run with tension and pain to my trunk. Targeted Core Training has improved my core and my ability to live my life again. Seeing my core function in real time allowed me to start engaging my core, reducing my pain and tension, and push beyond my limits. This is my COR Strength Story. SEE IT, TRAIN IT, LIVE IT!

Shoulder pain and what to do about it Shoulder pain and what to do about it

Shoulder pain that is chronic or gets worse with activity is usually the result of changes in how the shoulder moves or a biomechanical problem. Impingement Syndrome or rotator cuff strain are common diagnoses. Restoring normal joint mechanics is the goal of treatment before exercising.
