SRA TrueCoreTM spinal stabilization exercises focus on intersegmental strength first, not multi-segmental or multi-regional muscle strength. Intersegmental strength focuses on four key muscles of the spine that are half muscle fibers and half mechanoreceptors. They are so small that they cannot actually move one vertebra in relation to another. Maybe muscle, not really muscle, too small to do work... Why do we even have them in the mix of paraspinal support?
The following case study illustrates the relationship of a remote spondylogenic reflex syndrome (SRS) to pre-existing lumbar pathology, compromised spinal biomechanics, aberrant functional neurology and loss of performance in an elite athlete.

On the other hand, they also know that a quick start makes for a winning strategy in pain relief and wellness.
The following 3 brief case studies illustrate the variety in ages, conditions and histories of three individuals receiving Advanced SRA/SRT Treatment Protocols and their relatively universal response to this form of care. These cases also illustrate the primary reason for certification in SRA and SRT evidenced based procedures: predictable, dependable and reproducible outcomes.
