This baby’s position can teach you about your “true” core If you really want to “get to your core” you have to understand what your “true” core really is!
The approximately 6 month old baby’s position on the left is the same position you got yourself into before you creeped, crawled, or anything else! (called sagittal stability)
This awareness is a prerequisite to good, functional movement and yet according to pediatric neurologists and and physiotherapists from the Czech republic, 1/3 of all children do not develop this ability properly!
The kicker here is that any type of stress tends to create muscle imbalances that cause us, as adults to totally lose connection with this ability.
I call it “deep core amnesia” or DCA for short. DCA is a major problem because, like I said earlier, your inability to anchor your back support zone to the floor causes inefficient and damaging movement patterns that cause overload to your muscles, joints, ligaments, etc.
That’s why our first goal at the Core Wellness Institute is to create a renewed awareness of this “Deep Core Stability System” so you can move with strain-free, efficient ease that preserves and protects your joints from damaging overload!
I have created some “self test” videos so you can see if you’ve developed this amnesia yourself!
