Core Stability in Athletes: A Critical Analysis of Current Guidelines
* There is no evidence that classical strength-training exercises, for example, squat, deadlift, snatch, and clean and jerk, affect ‘global’ muscles only or lead to imbalances between the muscles of the trunk.
*The spine is secured by a direction-specific and synergistic interaction of ‘global’ and ‘local’ muscles
* A low activation level in some tasks does not mean this particular muscle plays a minor role; it shows only that, in the specific situation in which these measurements have been collected, fewer motor units were activated.
* Only in a combined axial compression, torsion, and ventral flexion, only half of the mechanical stability of intervertebral segments is available.
* No study has shown a superiority of exercising on unstable surfaces compared with stable surfaces.
1-The approach is not focused on a single muscle/muscle group, posture or movement.
Relation to a patient’s symptoms / combination of movements.
2-The approach must be tailored to the individual.
Patient needs and symptoms be considered.
3-Exercises must be progressed to function. 4-The approach is not appropriate for all patients with low back and pelvic pain.
5-The approach does not aim to encourage stiffness.
Optimal control is a balance between movement and stiffness
