Can Pilates Help Prevent Back Pain

Can Pilates Help Prevent Back Pain


Your back is hurting after a long day at the office and you are not sure what to do? Have you considered doing Pilates?

Pilates exercises focus on on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. The core are the muscles of the abdomen, lower back, and hips. Some exercises are specifically designed to help de-compress the lumbar spine by working to create a balance of strength between the lower, deep abdominals and low back muscles. Therefore, doing the right exercises can help you strengthen your lower back while releasing tension and tightness around the lower back area which can help ease some pain.

What You Can Do

You should consult with your doctor before starting Pilates for your back pain. Recommended Pilates exercises to help ease some lower back pain include the Chest Lift, the Pelvic Bridge, Swimming or the Child’s Pose.
