Core muscles the major muscles that move, support, and stabilize your spine
Kinetic Control: the management of uncontrolled movement
When the human body moves, there are variety of movement pattern can be used or choose from. However, patients may have limitation of course of selection in term of their movement pattern compares to ordinary people to cope with their daily activities. Therefore, it results of overused muscles and muscles wasted which led to malfunction of their body.
It is normal to be able to perform any functional task in variety of different ways, with different way of recruitment strategies
l Local stabilizer : are small, deep and mono-articular muscles, continually turned on to support the joints in any movement, regardless of the direction of the movement.
l Global stabliser :are superficial and poly-articular muscles, ability to stabilize the joint throughout the range, response to production of movement and the control of low physiological load.
l Global mobiliser: poly articular muscles, generates torque to produce range of movement, response for production of movement especially under high load/force momentum.
In clinically, in common for patients to come to the clinic due to pain. Patients may experience declined in their physical performance after they made full recovery from their structure damage. These damages are cleared by their physician after examinations and treatments. At this point, a physical therapist can analysis patients’ movement and function. The therapist found out that the patient’s stability muscles cannot effectively engage to work functionally. In that case, a customized exercise program can be used to help restore his function. On the other hand, patients’ active muscles (mobiliser) are often too tight which can lead to limitation of their range of movement. At this point, a manual therapy session will be ideal to release restricted muscles and restore its proper mobility.
