Relieving discomfort during and after pregnancy
Two-thirds of women experience back pain as their pregnancy progresses because the growing fetus puts pressure on the muscles. An effective remedy for pregnancy-related aches is regular exercise at a pace that feels comfortable to boost the mother’s mood and strengthen the muscles that support her back. Exercises that put pressure on the uterus, such as crunches, are of course not recommended. SpineGym exercises can be performed standing up, which offers a safe way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, the transverse abdominis, the obliques, and the deep back muscles.
New products and forms of exercise always also give rise to questions. Here you can find answers to the most commonly asked questions.
How is the SpineGym Core Exerciser different from other exercise devices?
Unlike other commonly used midsection exercise equipment, SpineGym allows exercises to be carried out in a natural position, standing up, and with small movements. Because of this, SpineGym is also suitable for people with back problems whose symptoms are aggravated by more extensive movements and uncomfortable positions.
Is SpineGym suitable for people with low fitness levels or impaired mobility?
SpineGym is suitable for everyone, including groups with special requirements. The exercises are carried out either standing up or sitting down, depending on the SpineGym exerciser model. Strengthening the abdominal and back muscles is particularly important for people with back or balance problems, who already suffer from issues caused by weak muscles.
How often should I use SpineGym?
Just 4 or 5 minutes of exercise 3 or 4 times a week is enough. Results will become apparent soon after starting regular exercise. The pace of development depends on how strong the stabilizer muscles were to begin with, on whether the exercises are performed in the correct position, and on how regularly they are carried out.
How soon can I expect results?
Exercising the midsection will have a positive impact on balance within a few weeks for people of all ages. In her master’s thesis, Iita Aho focused on the impact of SpineGym training on muscle strength and EMG measurements. The results were statistically significant for several muscle groups. The study found that after a SpineGym training period, the participants’ midsection strength values and muscle activation levels were higher. Further information on the study is available online at: https://jyx.jyu.fi/dspace/bitstream/handle/123456789/48451/URN:NBN:fi:jyu-201601251272.pdf?sequence=1
Where can I use SpineGym?
You can use SpineGym wherever you like: At home or work; even in a hotel room. The lightweight device is quick and easy to pack in a bag and to take with you on any trip. If you always train in the same place, it is easiest to keep SpineGym assembled and ready to use. This stylish training partner does not need to be stashed in a cupboard or under the bed.
Why is SpineGym training recommended for people with sedentary lifestyles?
If you spend long periods sitting down, your deep core muscles become deactivated. Then, when you stand up, you back lacks the protection provided by these muscles. Good ergonomics and correct working postures are important but your body also requires physical activity. Regular exercise with the SpineGym helps prevent this deactivation by activating tight hip flexors, loosening up the chest muscles, and improving spine mobility and blood flow in the area. The training affects all the deep muscles and posture, from the calves to the shoulders and neck. When your muscles are mobile and loosened up, you find it easier to carry out your daily tasks.
When is the ideal time to start training?
Anytime! Strengthening the deep core muscles that are essential for posture is important for everyone, and you can start training anytime. SpineGym training is especially beneficial to you if you suffer from regular back pain, your physical ability or work ability has decreased, or your work involves long periods of sitting still. SpineGym training is also effective in preventing backaches from arising at all. Strengthening stabilizer muscles with SpineGym training can also boost your performance in your specific sport.
Why are strong stabilizer muscles important for senior citizens?
Strong stabilizer muscles and good posture play a significant role in maintaining well-being and physical ability in older age. They also contribute to good balance and coordination, which help reduce the risk of falls. SpineGym training also comes in handy in the rehabilitation of muscles after illness, injury, or an operation. The exercises can be carried out either standing up or sitting down, depending on the SpineGym model.
