Pilates and muscle imbalance retraining is invaluable for back pain and maintaining or improving your core strength.
With thousands of exercises and levels to choose from you will need a programme that suits you as an individual.
Pilates exercises may be integrated into your package of other exercises to develop your stability muscles or you can do pilates on its own.
Pilates and muscle balance retraining are often a necessary component required by your consultant after back surgery.
If you are looking to join a class but don't know where to start why not book a one-off 1:1 session to introduce you to the concepts and start some key exercises?
Learn how to activate transversus abdominis
This muscle is often taught first as it acts like an internal corset for your back.
Develop your strength and endurance
Exercises have progressions built in so you can move through the five stages in your own time.
The basic exercises can be done painfree and you can build up to higher levels as your strength improves and when you feel ready.
