Pilates for Low Back Pain





PILATES FOR LOW BACK PAIN WORKSHOP WITH CLAIRE CASON


SATURDAY 3 MARCH 2018, 1-2:15PM


Low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide with up to 80% of adult’s experiencing low back pain during their lifetime. Most cases of low back pain are due to a multi-dimensional factors and very small percentage (1%) of patients will have serious pathology. While there is limited evidence to support individual risk factors as strong predictors of low back pain there is however evidence for the presence of muscle weakness and general deconditioning as one contributor. Subsequently exercise has been shown to be one of the most effective treatment approaches for low back pain.

Pilates aims to increase the strength and control of the muscles around the spine and the pelvis. This helps improve and restore everyday movements, as well as reducing the load on your joints. Practising Pilates regularly helps to promote balance and improve posture.  It also increases body awareness, which plays a pivotal role in the prevention of injury and rehabilitation in low back pain.

It is easy to perform Pilates exercises incorrectly. So, having a knowledgeable teacher who  ensures correct form and execution is very important. The aim of Physiotherapy-led Pilates classes is to provide education, focusing on rehabilitation, for the effective management of low back pain.
This Pilates workshop is open to anyone who wants an active approach to managing their low back pain.  No experience in Pilates is needed. We will incorporate a variety of standing and lying down strengthening, mobility and stretching exercises.

February Baby Massage Workshop



Baby Massage Workshop


Tuesday 27th February, 2-3:30pm



Massage is the most natural and instinctive form of caring for the baby. The new-born baby experiences the world through its senses, such as touch, smell, taste, sound and vision. These senses develop gradually. However, from the moment of birth, the baby already understands the language of touch. Join us on this Baby Massage Workshop led by Baby Massage Therapist, Lauren Wee.


What are the benefits of baby massage


Here are some of the benefits of baby massage:

  • Massage helps to create a unique bond between the parents and the baby.
  • It gives first-time parents more confidence.
  • Massage relaxes both the baby and the parent.
  • Mothers who suffer from postnatal depression may feel more positive when they experience their baby’s response to the massage.
  • Massage helps parents to be aware of their baby’s body and the developmental changes they are going through.
  • Regularly massaged babies develop their motor skills more quickly.
  • Massage helps to improved circulation, as well as promoting healthy skin and a strong immune system.
  • As the baby relaxes during the massage, their muscles also relax. As a result, massage can also help to ease conditions such as colic pain and constipation.
  • Baby massage is highly therapeutic. In addition to this, it can help with several ailments throughout early childhood.


This Baby Massage Workshop is run by paediatric physiotherapist Lauren Wee. It takes place on Tuesday 27th February at 2pm. Please note, this workshop is not suitable for babies who have received vaccinations within the last 48 hours. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Cost and booking



This Baby Massage Workshop costs £30. You can book online, in person at reception, by calling  020 8789 3881 or by sending an email on info@putneyclinic.co.uk.

Stretch Workshop for February 2018



Stretch Workshop with Cherie Lathey


Saturday 17th February, 1 - 2:30pm


Are you looking to increase your flexibility? Then this stretch workshop is for you.

Many people, whether they are elite athletes or desk bound office workers, need to spend more time stretching to increase their range of motion. Lots of injuries and back problems can have their roots in tightness or in balance in the muscles or stiffness around the joints.

This workshop is loosely based on the Yin Yoga principle of holding stretches for 3 to 5 minutes, thus also stretching the fascia that surrounds the muscles.

This workshop is open to anyone as we will use props to help facilitate this deep stretching. There is no jumping around and the workshop is mostly floor based. Be prepared to take yourself out of your “normal” stretch comfort zone.

Cost and booking


This stretch workshop costs £25. To book your place, call The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy reception on 020 8789 3881 or visit the Yoga Mama online booking system.

This type of yoga suitable for all. It is especially suitable for people returning to yoga practice after a spell away. It is also suitable for anyone working with injuries or health conditions.
