Fitness – Core Strength

Core strength provides a solid foundation for movement of the extremities. Strong balanced core muscles help maintain appropriate posture and reduce strain on the spine. With this in mind the OCA created an interactive Core Strength Test for members to perform on participants during outreach activities.

Purpose
The OCA Core Strength Test can be used as an interactive component of a public education booth or outreach activity. The test is a great way to actively engage the public by having them participate in a simple test to determine core strength. Once their strength level has been determined they are given suggested core exercises to further develop their core strength. The test allows for chiropractors to talk about the importance of core strength and its relation to a healthy back.
