Joseph Pilates, the ailing son of a prize winning gymnast in the 19th century, in response to years of childhood suffering from rheumatic fever and a host of ills, focused his life on improving his health and strength. He designed his program specifically for rehabilitation and strength and stamina.
Practiced correctly , Pilates will strengthen your core muscles ( deep abdominal, back and pelvic ﬂoor muscles ) and your deep back muscles, helping you achieve relief for your back pain.
Pilates also teaches awareness of neutral alignment of the spine; alignment that is neither perfectly ﬂat nor overly arched; strengthening the deep muscles that support the alignment are important to prevent and alleviate back pain.
If you try to do pilates by yourself injuries are always possible. That is why itʼs important to be under the watchful eye of a certiﬁed instructor. We are here and ready to help you achieve success in your training at the premiere Wellington Pilates studio, My Pilates.
People that suffer from back problems, like herniated discs of the spine, can not do exercises without supervision. If they do, they may do more harm than good. Pilates is low-impact and does not induce inﬂammation or overuse syndromes. At My Pilates of Wellington, our goal is to teach you how to do the exercises the correct way. We give you enough information on basic solutions to help yourself prevent further injury and to feel better today. Of course, you should always seek medical advice for an acute injury from a licensed M.D. or medical professional.
