The physiotherapists at Centre Sports & Spinal can use Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) imaging to assess and treat the way your deep muscles fire for low back and pelvic stability. Your “core” muscles, specifically transversus abdominis, deep multifidus, and pelvic floor muscles are meant to activate very gently every time you move. If you have low back or pelvic girdle pain, urinary stress incontinence or you’ve given birth, these muscles often stop functioning properly. Research has also shown that even when your pain goes away, these deep stabilising core muscles may not return to normal activation, which predisposes you to have recurrent episodes of back or pelvic pain. It is therefore important to know if these muscles are working properly. Being able to see your own deep stability muscles work can be a very powerful biofeedback tool. Please ask one of our physiotherapists if you would like to know more.
