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 it helps protect the body from injury.
