Many clients first seek out Pilates because of some kind of injury, and back pain is one of the most common problems we see in our Los Angeles, CA studio.
Back pain can have many different causes, but one of the most frequent sources of chronic back problems is core weakness and instability. Our modern lifestyle doesn’t help. Too many of us are bound to a chair and desk all day, and our lives are much more sedentary than is healthy. All of these issues lead to weakened trunk and core muscles, which in turn affects posture and can lead to pain.
Pilates can help.
Research shows that Pilates is effective at improving core strength, correcting postural issues, and relieving back pain. A 2018 study found that back pain patients who did 12 weeks of mat Pilates had improved function, less disability, and less pain.
