The second video on re-educating these all important muscles!
If you have low-back pain or an old disc injury that has not healed, re-educating the deep spinal stabilising muscles is a large part of the healing process.
Your tissues always heal with time, however, traumatised muscles can stay inhibited indefinitely. This means they literally waste away and thereby cannot do their important work of maintaining the integrity of your spine. Your body will naturally give you pain to prevent you endangering or damaging the vital spinal cord within the vertebral column.
We first need to activate these muscles and then re-educate them, before we can strengthen them. These movements need to be slow, controlled and precise. Done correctly, they require great focus, which means you are stimulating your nervous system’s ability for movement control, aka, no need to give you pain!
