Anyone (I know a more than a few have used this) notice profound results from this core strengthing ball (among other modalities e.g Pilates) in that they were able to do more physical activity than previously? I have instability issues that manifest in my MRIs (am a spondy and am unclear re: treatment/ prognosis).

Thanx and am open to suggestions. I know PT can go so far but why not try.

Severe, extensive DDD, considered inoperable by Dr. Regan, Lauressen, & some guy at UCLA. Severe foraminal stenosis (guess they can't operate!) and some spinal cord compression that Lauryssen would fix if gets outta hand.

Hi Allan,

You know from past posts that I use my physio ball regularly. It is a great way of reducing stress on the spine while strengthening the core. It is important that you seek professional guidance before you just grab a ball and start working out. Form and posture are crucial when using the balls. An easy core activity is just balancing on the ball. Use it as a chair. Use it to do the bridge pose, abdominal crunches, and reverse crunches. The ball can also be held in front of you while you squat- you should feel this in your glutes and quads. Hope this helps!
