Training Core and Scapular Muscles with the TRX Suspension Trainer

Often in my Chiropractic and Athletic Therapy practice I see people who have poor core strength (which includes the rectus abdominus, obliques, quadratus lumborum, hip flexors, gluteal muscles, hamstring muscles in addition to the smaller stabilizing muscles of the hip and lumbar spine) and poor scapular stabilization muscles (rhomboids, trapezius and serratus anterior muscles).  I recently had a patient come in with both of these problems.  His chief complaints included, a history of top of the shoulder/neck pain as well as a history of lower back pain. I decided to use my favorite piece of exercise equipment, to help with his goals, the TRX suspension trainer.

Check out the program

DrNotley – TRX Scapular and Core Stabilization

These are the types of programs that I provide my patients on a fairly regular basis if they are interested and willing to take control of their health. If you are interested in a program you should expect to go through a complete history and physical exam to determine your weaknesses.  Your program will then be tailor made to fit your goals, the exercise equipment you have and the time you are willing to commit to the program.  You will receive a PDF document of your program similar to the program above.  Follow up visits will also be done to ensure you are performing the exercises correctly, the program is to your liking and your goals are being met.

If you have similar complaints to this patient consider making an appointment to see me at either my Downtown Chiropractic office or Gelley Chiropractic Office (St. Vital).

Until next time
