National Academy of Sports Medicine answeredCore stabilization is the ability to maintain proper spinal and pelvic alignment of the body while performing daily tasks. The core contracts every time any part of the body moves. A strong core that helps prevent unwanted movement of the spine and pelvis is important efficient and safe movement.
Core stabilization (core stability or core strength) means using the muscles of the trunk to support the spine and body during activity. The trunk muscles include those in the abdomen and back, around the neck and shoulder blades, and around the pelvis, hips, groin and buttocks.
Core stabilization helps improve posture, balance, strength and coordinated movement, and helps protect the body from injury.
