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.
Our Pilates Rehab classes are 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.
