  • Hip and Lower Stomach Muscles

    The rectus abdominis is indeed the most well-known and prominent abdominal muscle. It is a paired muscle that extends vertically along the anterior (front) of the abdomen. The rectus abdominis originates from the pubis, specifically the pubic crest and symphysis, and it inserts into the fifth, sixth, and seventh ribs, as well as the xiphoid process.

    The rectus abdominis is commonly referred to as the "six-pack" muscle due to its characteristic appearance in individuals with well-defined abdominal musculature. It is divided into segments by fibrous bands called tendinous intersections, which give it a segmented appearance. The rectus abdominis plays a crucial role in flexing the trunk, as well as aiding in other movements such as forced expiration, childbirth, and defecation.

    In addition to the rectus abdominis, there are other important abdominal muscles such as the external and internal obliques, transversus abdominis, and the pyramidalis. Collectively, these muscles contribute to core stability, protect the abdominal organs, and assist in various movements and functions of the trunk.

  • Hip and Lower Stomach Exercises

    This variation of the lower body crunch is really great for the hips. It really puts the hips into a position that maximize the flexibility of them and helps loosen them up. So get your neck supported, get onto your back, get your leg up onto the knee in a nice straight position, and from there you simply want to do a crunch.  Often seeing a local family physician or a physiotherapist in conjunction with a Chiropractors and athletic therapist is a great option to take control of this condition. Smart Food Now and exercise is also optominal for overall health. 


    It comes up, it goes down and what you’ll find when you first start out your range of motions probably is going to be a bit small, but as you start to loosen up, you’ll start to get a really nice lower body crunch out of it.  A local chiropractor may work with your local massage therapist and your local physiotherapist to create the best health or rehabilitation plan for your situation. 

    Repetitions are 10 to 15, go nice and slow. Contract your tummy, keep your upper body relaxed, and you’ll find that over time its a great exercise for not only getting some stomach work, but for loosening up your hips at the same time. Now Health Network Local Practitioners: Local Endocrinologist
