The core muscles are one of the more difficult sets of muscles to feel and visualise the correct activation of. Real-time ultrasound is a great way to determine whether you are correctly activating your core stability muscles.
By looking at the real-time image of your muscle contractions we are able to match up what you are feeling with the correct activation of your muscles. We are able to assess your core while doing a range of activities to work out what muscles and what movements need to be retrained. When retraining the core, it is not always a lack of muscle activation, sometimes the muscles are activating incorrectly or other muscles are overactive.
Real-time ultrasound sessions have been shown to increase the speed of recovery from injury and muscle retraining time. By having your core muscle activation assessed with real-time ultrasound, you will get more out of your Pilates and strength training!
