Pilates for back pain
Did you know that 80% of people have back pain and it costs the economy £10-20 million per year the NHS spends almost £500 million treating chronic back pain?
Primary causes of back pain
The primary causes of back pain are lack of movement and moving in inefficient ways. Did you also know that is exactly what we teach at Chapel Allerton Pilates?
How to move well
Pilates is like taking vitamin D it is helping you make up for the lack of good vitamin movement by teaching you what & how to move well to prevent back pain, oh and much more! By doing Pilates you are doing your NHS a favour as well as your future self! Keep up the good work!
We spoke to our long-standing client Helen to find out more about her back pain story and how Pilates at Chapel Allerton Pilates made it better.
“I started at Chapel Allerton Pilates about six months after it opened.
My aim originally was to help my lower back problem which was/is quite long-standing. However, it became clear that it would take longer to deal with than I had first imagined!
Claire encouraged me to be patient and look at the bigger picture and we together slowly built up a varied and sometimes challenging routine which over time has dramatically improved my back pain, discomfort whilst in bed/sleeping, and general posture.
I would highly recommend Pilates as an aid to relieving lower back pain, but it does take commitment, perseverance, and patience!
If you are working with an injury or are experiencing back pain we highly recommend booking a one-to-one so you can have a full movement assessment and your Pilates teacher will either create a bespoke programme for you with one-to-ones or advise you on which group classes are suitable for your level.
