ARCOLA, Ill., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Available to the public through an Indiegogo campaign launched on August 8, Tighten the Core, Inc. is the newly formed company behind The Core Activator, the first exercise machine to integrate core muscle activation in every plane of motion while taking compression loads off the spine.
Motion is essential for healthy muscles and joints, delivering vital nutrients to the spine and the core muscles surrounding the spine. For the increasing number of Americans forced to sit at a desk all day, that lack of motion leads to lower back pain, or even chronic conditions. Sitting shuts down core muscle activity and places harmful compression loads on the spine. Imagine getting up from your chair and being able to stretch and bring motion into your tired and stiff low back, right there in your home of office. Within minutes back pain diminishes as you reverse the negative effects of sitting. Traditional core exercise equipment are performed while seated, adding pressure to the spine, weakening discs and inhibiting core muscle activation.
The Core Activator keeps the spine in a biomechanically safer and more efficient spine neutral position. The 45 degree angle of the machine takes significant compression loads off the spine and forces the deeper stabilizing muscles of the core to engage in all three planes of motion: flexion, extension and lateral flexion. The result is a more efficient workout that activates the entire core muscle belt while bathing the spine and low back in key nutrients.
With repeated use, the Core Activator retrains neural pathways for more effective exercise. When the brain creates new neural pathways, it allows us to quickly respond to a given event in the same manner each time that event occurs, saving us from having to think about the action. The Core Activator repetitively fires core muscles during training, creating new neural pathways that cause users to activate their core muscles without even thinking about it, much like a reflex. This increases strength and endurance, and help prevent future injuries.
The Core Activator was created by Dr. Jeff Fishel, a chiropractor of 26 years who suffered a broken back in a severe car accident while in college. Since then, spinal health has been a passion. When Jeff discovered that current core training exercise equipment was at odds with current medical research, he created the Core Activator.
Jeff has spent 14 years working with Division I and World Class Track Athletes, and he earned his Masters in Sports Science from the United States Sports Academy in Mobile, Alabama. In his private practice, he's worked with stroke patients, spinal trauma patients, paraplegics and professional athletes. To date, Dr. Jeff has paraplegic patients with prior prognosis of life in wheelchairs, walking again due to aggressive core integration training using the Core Activator.
On August 8, Tighten the Core, Inc. launched an Indiegogo campaign to make the Core Activator available to the public, the first time a machine that allows front flexion, back extension and lateral flexion all on the same machine will be available for purchase.
For the 30 million Americans suffering from back pain on any given day, the Core Activator will be a revelation.
