‘Bad Posture’ does not necessarily dictate whether you will experience pain or injury. However, poor mobility, stability, and function can be an issue. What we would consider poor posture can be perfectly fine as long has mobility, stability and function are maintained to perform necessary activities.
Core stability exercise has been a bit of a buzzword in the health and fitness industries for over a decade, and often marketed as the key to enhancing sports performance, along with preventing and rehabilitating injuries (particularly with low back pain).
Research in the 1990’s found that there was a delay in activation or firing of certain muscles in people with back pain. The research concluded that these muscles were responsible for stabilising the spine people with back pain would benefit from rehabilitation.
Further research over the past decade has concluded that core exercises will increase strength and stamina in these muscles. However, this is not transferable to real life sports or strength in daily activities.
In these areas, more functional training is required. Read more about correct core stability training.
