We can help your Core Stability

Core Stability specific clinical core exercise therapy training and progressive graded exercise provided by an osteopath for sports injury rehabilitation, has been proven to help core stability, core muscle strength, trunk stability, force transfer, sports performance, abdominal muscle strength, diastasis recti management, post-surgical muscle reactivation and motor control, lumbar spine stability, increase physical expression, and help restore more normal spinal joint and associated muscle and tendon function. Additionally, manual therapy and hands on treatment by an osteopath, has been proven to help assist the guided training of core control, spinal range of motion, and motor control. More importantly it seems that combined therapy (multidisciplinary therapy) of exercise and manually guided exercise osteopathy has an even greater role, and effect on the core stabilizers and that of the lower back bracing capacity, balance, distal limb range of motion (mobility) and force, and global motor pattern expression.


I initially saw Michael by default because my then osteopath was full and I was in back crisis. I have been seeing Michael ever since. Michael has a recovery approach, he sets me homework so I can improve my problem in between appointments. I have had ongoing problems with my neck but after my pregnancy I lost all the strength and stability in my inner core, which led to lower back problems and my pelvis was sat at a funny angle. He has helped me to understand my problems and together we have solved them. I have full movement in my pelvis and a much stronger inner core. I no longer attend in crisis but as part of a plan. Thank you Michael!
