Back and Joint Pain

With its focus on spine alignment and deep postural muscles strength, Pilates can really make the difference when it comes to back pain, specially when pain is caused by a degeneration of intervertebral discs and joints. Pilates also improves postural asymmetries that can lead to injuries, pain or simply wear and tear in discs and joints.

Before starting any new exercise system, please check with a physician or other healthcare provider. If you are starting Pilates after physical therapy, the physical therapist should explain the exercise principles that are more relevant to your rehabilitation.

For clients suffering with chronic pain, arthritis or osteoporosis, Pilates can:

  • Significantly help reduce pain
  • Improve joint functions and reduce stiffness through enhanced lubrication of the joints (less friction)
  • Help relieve chronic pain due to Fibromyalgia or Hypermobility Syndrome
  • Help contrasting the loss of bone density due to osteoporosis or osteopoenia
  • Help reduce the impact of weight on the knee joints, promoting a more efficient distribution of the body weight
