In brief: Many muscles

One of the keys is core muscle strength.
The core muscles focus on the abdominal musculature. But also important are the hip flexors and extensors and the erector muscles of the back. Strengthening is important and so is flexibility. These are areas that can best be evaluated by a pm&r doctor or a do familiar with omt. Treatment is often in conjunction with a pt.
