Many of us have experienced back pain ourselves or know someone who has. It's no surprise that low back pain is one of the most prevalent conditions among Australian adults and, if managed poorly, creates a significant social and economic burden.
While the effectiveness of treatments such as medication, massage and electrotherapy have been established in the past; more recent advancements in scientific research have resulted in evidence supporting a more active approach for patients with chronic conditions.
A recent study systematically reviewed all of the available data in relation to the effectiveness of Pilates exercise in people with chronic low back pain, producing statistically significant findings in support of Pilates exercise.
Pilates exercise, named after its founder Joseph Pilates in the 1920's, focuses on activating the deep core muscles to provide stability for the spine during movement. If this sounds all too familiar to you, come along and join one of our small groups. You'll be glad you did!
Why? If you suffer from low back pain, including a Pilates exercise program, which places an emphasis on core stability, flexibility, strength and quality of movement will help speed up your recovery so you're feeling better and can return to the activities you enjoy, quicker!
So, yes, Pilates can be your partner in managing pain.
