Why is it so important to utilize the core during sports rehab for any injury?
The core encompasses the muscles of the back and abdomen which takes up a large part of the body. By building core strength, athletes support the limbs during functional movements like throwing, sprinting, jumping and landing motions. Core strengthening is key to providing a full body rehab program for an athlete and helps prevent injury to the spine and extremities, allowing the athlete to continue playing for years to come.
