5D: Core Stability

Core strength comes from trunk muscles and it enables us to develop posture for movement and anti-gravity positioning. Core stability is required for most movement. Control over the body including head control, upper limb control and mobility are dependent on core stability. It gives us balance, enables effective bilateral skills and the ability to stabilise joints for the use of tools such as a pencil. Core stability is required to enable shoulder stability which then enable upper limb stability and then hand skill development.
