Core stability, strengthens muscle tone, improves balance, and posture.
The wobble disk is a great way to support the low back and I recommend it to all my practice members. The movement generated with the wobble disk helps strengthen the muscles around the spine, add flexibility to the low back and hips, and improves blood flow, hydration and oxygenation through your spinal discs. It engages your core muscles while sitting, reducing slouching, improving posture and allowing you to sit up straight.
Research by Professor Hazard in 2000 found that passive motion/movement of the lower back reduced stiffness and pain in the lower back and increased alertness.
The wobble disk is good to use for 3-5 minutes to warm up the spine with motion before chiropractic adjustments and overall helps promote proper spinal movement and flexibility. It helps to place on your chair if you’re working from home to reduce tension on the low back. It’s low cost and effective way to improve spinal motion daily.
