The neck core ✅ ⬇️ When discussing the ‘core’, it is most often in reference to the lumbo-pelvic core. The deeper musculature in this region (diaphragm, Transverse abdominus, obliques etc) can provide a ton of control and stability to the lumbar region as needed. The lumbar region thrives on this control and stability, and having a strong/functional core is a big component of having a healthy back. ⬇️ The cervical spine (neck) also thrives on control and relative stability. It is the direct supporter of the skull and plays a vital role in orienting and stabilizing the head. Just like the lumbar core, the cervical spine also has a core. This ‘neck core’ plays a similar role. ✔️ This core is made up of a group of muscles called the deep neck flexors (shown in the graphic) and extensors. These deeper neck muscles act as intersegmental supporters of the spine in this region. ⬇️ A big role of both ‘cores’ is to maintain a desired spinal position. If there was no deep intrinsic musculature supporting the spine, the spine would lack integrity and it would be very difficult to control and stabilize it as needed. ⬇️ Using the core is all relative. It should be at work to some extent all the time, but activity dependant. Bracing the neck core can be done as needed, such as when lifting a heavy weight or preparing for a hit in sports. ⬇️ A future video will demonstrate some exercises that can be used to train and strengthen the neck core. ————————————————- #neck #spine #strength #strong #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #core #training #weightlifting #powerlifting #movement #mobility #health #wellness #crossfit #fitness #fit #exercise #strengthtraining #healthy #sports #ottawa #toronto #athlete #yoga #fitfam #move #human #anatomy #tips @optimize.physiotherapy optimize.physiotherapy Mike Gauvreau

Great post! Love the graphics....it’s hard to find anatomical models that even show Longus Colli/Capatis. I treat these everyday in my Bodywork practice and it’s life changing stuff!

After lumbo-pelvic dysfunction, my neck 'core' was well out of whack. By attempting to treat the lumbo-pelvic, and do soft tissue therapy to the soft tissues of the neck, I'm making minor progress.

I've been calling it The "neck core" for years! So great to see you referencing it

I got my entire spine straightened without the metal prone brace surgical therapy process. So many people got that metal brace drilled in their spine. I slept on a huge white like marvel brick for 4.5yrs. My neck I fixed first. 4inches of crookedness from a Sports incident. And back crooked 5inches on of the muscle cavity. All fixed and remuscled by a marvel brick and windy fog. Everyday..

Great! I'm just about to add neck curls for the neck flexors and neck extensions for the extensors with plates lying on a bench with a cap on.
