The stabilising muscles of the lumbar spine and pelvis (Transversus and Multifidus) can be recruited using the Stabilizer Pressure Biofeedback unit.

The three chamber pressure cell of the Stabilizer is placed under the abdomen with the patient lying face down. The pressure cell is inflated to the baseline pressure level of 70 mmHg.

The patient gently contracts the Transversus and Multifidus by drawing in the abdominal wall without moving the spine or pelvis. This subtle movement should not be confused with breathing in and holding, or contracting the 'six pack'. During the contraction of the Transversus and Multifidus, the dial should drop to between 60 and 65 mmHg.

The contraction of Transversus and Multifidus should be maintained for 10 - 15 seconds whilst continuing to breathe normally. The patient should aim for 10 repetitions to start with.

Maintaining a steady contraction may be difficult at first, but with practice as the muscle control improves the needle on the dial becomes more steady. The patient should progressively increase the duration of the contraction before progressing on to using the Stabilizer in more functional positions.
