Core Wellness Means More Than Having Nice Abs

People often equate visible ab muscles with health, strength and elite physical fitness. Indeed, many athletes do sport a six-pack and are in top physical condition. But there is more to core wellness than having nice abs. Healthy abs and a strong core do everything from helping you keep your balance to preventing back pain and improving your coordination. It is possible to have strong ab muscles in the front combined with low body fat, making the six sections of abdominal muscles visible under the skin. However, a strong core means that the other muscle groups surrounding your torso and all the way down to your pelvic floor are also fully active and strong. That’s what we call nice abs.

When this occurs, you can experience symptoms of core dysfunction. Fortunately, you can regain your core wellness with simple, non-invasive treatments. Our Venus Ab Rehab therapy using Emsculpt quickly gets your ab muscles back into shape, rebalanced and strong. All while you lie comfortably, with your clothes on.

You’ve Heard of Kegel Chair Therapy

Kegels are a well-known pelvic floor exercise designed to help strengthen muscles in the pelvis. But Kegels are hard to do and hard to keep up with over time. You may have heard of the Kegel chair and its ability to deliver the same benefit as doing 11,000 Kegels in under 30 minutes. With that kind of power, Kegel chair therapy has proven to improve pelvic floor fitness and reduce or eliminate urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction. To get their lives back, many women and men are finding success with Kegel chair therapy – or Libby Chair Pelvic Therapy as we call it. For people suffering from bladder leaks, pelvic pain, or sexual performance issues, Libby could be the answer. Give us a call for a consultation to find out if Libby (the Emsella chair near me) is right for you.

It Starts with Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction is difficult to diagnose because you can’t see the issue from the outside. In many cases, it’s difficult to feel that there is a problem unless you know the signs. At Corelife Wellness, we often start with a consultation with a pelvic floor physiotherapist who can determine your particular issues. For some people, the problem is weak pelvic floor muscles that allow bladder leaks to happen when you run, jump, cough or sneeze. In others, hypertonic muscles that are too tight and incapable of returning to a fully relaxed state cause sexual pain and constipation. Still, others experience an imbalance with some muscles overcompensating for inactive muscles. Whatever the case, a pelvic floor physiotherapist can guide you toward the correct type of pelvic floor therapy in Oakville.

We’ve Got Your Mommy Tummy Fix

It’s not uncommon for women who have recently given birth to have what is affectionately known as mommy tummy. It’s the little belly bulge that remains after postpartum recovery. Many women agonize over getting rid of their mommy tummy with extreme diets and exercise regimens. However, mommy tummy can’t always be eliminated so easily. In fact, it’s a medical condition called diastasis recti, and not the result of so-called baby fat at all!

We’ve got your mommy tummy fix with Venus Ab Rehab therapy to strengthen and tone muscles, bringing them back to full activation. Diastasis recti symptoms are reduced after the first Venus session, and the results improve with additional treatments. Give us a call to learn more about Venus and how it can help you recover faster from diastasis recti – and even help you get those visible ab muscles!
