Question asked by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali 1385 days ago
In your opinion, which is better for spinal stabilization, the drawing in manuever or bracing?
Bracing is my preference. I like the isometrics, plus it can be used all over the body to increase the stability in any plane of motion.
I'd also go with bracing. I find it easier to coach to my clients and easier for them to maintain with all exercises in various planes. I also encourage them to brace as they go about daily living.
I think the bracing term is less confusing and will encourage clients to continue breathing naturally.
