The Best Exercises for Core Strength
Complete the exercise that follows, Identifying Your Core Circle. You may be surprised at your list For some people, the core circle consists of members of a church or synagogue, or a group devoted to a particular hobby (as was the case for Candace). Other people regularly rely on and socialize with just a few friends or family members. It isn't simply the number of people in your life that protects you from a drop in your mood but the quality of these relationships and the regularity of the contact.
While obtaining the history and physical the practitioner will pay special attention to factors that will make aquatic therapy uniquely beneficial, as well as to contraindications. Evaluation includes a focused neurologic and musculoskeletal examination with a focus on spinal range of motion, strength, sensation, and gait. A common example of an aquatic therapy regimen is that outlined by Dr. Andrew Cole.7 Static and dynamic exercises of progressive difficulty are used for development of spinal stabilization. Examples include sitting against the pool wall with neutral spine posture, walking forward and backward, abdominal crunches, a host of exercises designed for the facilitation of neutral spine posture, flexibility, conditioning and core strength.
Ask your core circle of friends and family members for support Circle those things that members of your core circle can do. List members of your core circle and put numbers after each indicating which of items 18 they are willing to perform (list more than one item, if appropriate).
Ask one or more members of your core circle to add any other early warning signs they've observed, and, if relevant, the circumstances in which these signs first appeared. Depressive episodes have a different quality. For most people, they do not come on suddenly and often last longer than manic episodes. But as is true for mania, identifying and combating the early warning signs of depression will help you feel more in control of your disorder. In Chapter 10, you'll see how you can use the support of your core circle, along with certain personal strategies such as behavioral activation and cognitive restructuring, to try to keep your depressions from becoming more serious or debilitating.
Realize that no criticism calls your core worth into question. Either the criticism aims at a valid shortcoming, which is external and correctable, or reflects the troubled state of the critic. Either way you can think, No matter what you do or say, I am still a worthwhile person. Some people find it helpful to imagine a oneway love shield. If someone, in effect, says, I hate you, your shield deflects that from your core, while letting through the message, I don't hate you. I love you. One mother found this concept particularly helpful when her young boy declared his hate for her. She responded, I don't hate you. I love you so much. It defused his anger, while modeling two ideas First, anger arises even among people who love each other it need not change that feeling of love. Second, criticism doesn't change core worth and needn't unduly upset a person.
Increased hip varus Increased knee valgus Vastus laterals vastus medials Foot pronation Increased lumbar lordosis Weak core strength During rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction, the therapist should emphasize avoidance of abnormal mechanics leading to ACL injury, substituting instead proper landing and cutting skills and agility skills minimizing dominant leg characteristics if such exist. Moreover, these same principles should be highlighted as a part of preseason conditioning programs. Drills to enhance balance and agility, incorporating plyometrics with an emphasis on proper landing techniques (i.e., landing light as a feather by contracting core muscles and with more hip and knee flexion and with the body balanced over the lower extremity) should be practiced.
The aforementioned degeneration of the intervertebral disc leads to altered local and segmental mechanics, generating a cascade of compensatory changes within the facet complex, bones, and ligaments.2 Along with degenerative changes occurring with the normal aging spine, the surrounding support structures are also aging and thus degenerating. The most important of the surrounding structures are the core muscles, which include the paraspinal musculature and the abdominal muscles.3 As these supporting muscles lose tone, the spinal column stability depends more on the facet joints, ligaments, and intervertebral discs leading to compensatory hypertrophy of the ligaments, hypertrophied facet joints, and calcified annular-vertebral osteophytes (Table 14-1).3
