Hi, Dr. Vilkelis, how are you today?
Now, as we do these exercises, people will often kind of master the level that we’re doing and so as they master the level, we move them to the next level and the exercises evolve so that we keep stimulating that nerve pathway, so that it’s going to become the strongest. Once we’re done really repairing everything, the muscles will fire correctly and it won’t be a problem down the road.
What these exercises are really doing, they’re forcing all those core muscles to fire the way they’re meant to when you’re under stress and under weight and being challenged physically.
If they have a lower back problem, for instance, we’re going to have them doing things where maybe they’re doing leg lifts, and maybe I’m going to have them doing things like where they’re tossing a medicine ball in the air and catching it in a squat.
By doing that, we’re also forcing the musculature to fire correctly, under a challenge, in a way that’s very safe and very controlled, where the person is not getting hurt.
