Transverse Abdominis Activation Video

What is it?

This 2-minute video demonstrates how to teach patients to contract their transverse abdominis muscle. It can be used as a refresher for clinicians or as a reference for patients when doing their exercises at home.

Our thoughts:

This video is simple, clear, and effective. It provides the basic verbal and tactile cues for activating transverse abdominis, which can be a tricky thing to teach! Of course, some patients need a few more cues (such as pelvic floor activation, thinking about tightening a “corset”, etc.), so don’t be afraid to put your own spin on your exercise instruction!
