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.
