THE word ‘core’ seems to have been introduced in more recent years to describe key or central stabilising body muscles. The core muscle groups are responsible in supporting spine stability and reducing the risk of injuries.

Core Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic physiotherapist, Sonal Shah said, “Core muscles are the ones around the spine and stabilise the spine while you’re moving. A big focus in our clinic is the use of pilates and physiotherapy exercises to improve core strength. Our aim is for our patients to be pain free and to be able to manage their conditions.”

The team at Core Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic have a special interest in sports injuries and also work with TAC and Workcover patients. Sonal said, “We’re proud to say that most of the patients we see under workcover see great results and are able to eventually return to work.”

Speak to the team about how they can help you and perhaps join one of their seniors, pilates or rehabilitation groups that run from their premises at 39 Wyndham Street, Shepparton or phone 5832 7634.
