3 Benefits of Strengthening Your Abdominal Core
Don’t neglect your core at the gym. Strengthen your abdominal muscles and obliques for these three significant health and wellness benefits.

A stronger core offers more perks than muscle definition or a six-pack. By focusing on your abdominal muscles and core strength, you become healthier and less prone to acute injuries and chronic pain. 

While hours of dedication at the gym can help you reach your core strength goals, all that hard work isn’t necessary for an exponential core strength increase. At RBMA Wellness Center in West Sacramento, California, Marc Concepcion, DO, specializes in using an innovative procedure called EmSculpt Neo® to help you build muscle and increase muscle definition without the intense workouts. 

Unlike other treatments in its class, Emsculpt Neo sculpts your body using two simultaneous mechanisms. Radiofrequency gently heats and melts fat cells, while high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM®) stimulates powerful muscle contractions. 

By targeting your abdominal muscles and obliques with EmSculpt Neo, you can get a stronger core and all of the benefits that come with it. Expect to undergo multiple sessions at RBMA Wellness Center to gain 25% more muscle. 

Besides having a beach-ready body, what other benefits can you get from strengthening your abdominal core using EmSculpt Neo? Here are our top three:

1. Improved balance and stability

Your core comprises the center of your body. It consists of your pelvis, hips, stomach, and low back. This part of your body bears most of the responsibility of keeping you upright, whether you’re standing up or sitting down. 

When the muscles in your core work together, they keep you stable and balanced. A stronger core helps you stay balanced and stable even when outside factors test your balance. Whether you’re walking down a steep hill or across a narrow bridge, strong core muscles minimize your risk of falls.

2. A healthy back

Your abdominal core supports your low back — a part prone to injuries. When your core is weak, you struggle to maintain a straight posture. You might find yourself slouching at your desk or behind the wheel. Good posture (and a strong core) supports your low back and minimizes wear-and-tear on your spine. 

Targeting your core with EmSculpt Neo or conventional strengthening exercises can reduce your risk of back pain and injuries associated with poor posture like:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Sprains and strains
  • Osteoarthritis

These issues increase because of weight challenges. If weight factors into your health and wellness, Dr. Concepcion might recommend taking part in medical weight loss before you get body sculpting with EmSculpt Neo. 

3. Better physical fitness

Maintaining a strong core allows you to participate and get the most enjoyment from physical activities like biking, kayaking, swimming, and even sex. Your muscles can withstand repeated movements with less fatigue and more endurance.
