The abdominals, also called the core muscles, are the muscles in the center of your body that keep you upright and help you bend forward, back, and to either side. They are made up of layers of muscle and connective tissue that run from your pelvis to your rib cage. The two main groups are the rectus abdominis muscles (the “six-pack”) on the front of your abdomen and the transverse abdominis (or “corset”) on the sides.
The cause of abdominal weakness can vary depending on the type of weakness.
Weakness in a particular muscle may be caused by injury, strain, or overuse.
Some causes of abdominal weakness include:
- Injuries to the muscles that support the abdomen
- Problems with the nerves that control these muscles
- Loss of sensation in these muscles
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease
Abdomen rehab for women can be a difficult process because it involves many different aspects such as physical therapy, post-natal exercises, pelvic floor exercises.
However, with perseverance and dedication it is possible for women to regain their strength and get back into shape, even after pregnancy.
