Pilates Most Effective Mode for Treating Low Back Pain

We know all too well that low back pain is the leading cause of disability and the most common of all non-communicable diseases. Back pain lasting longer than 12 weeks is considered chronic and without the proper treatment, can be very difficult to resolve.
A recent study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that ultrasound, hot/cold therapy and massage failed to reduce pain in this group of patients, yet exercise training was very effective!
To be even more specific, when trying to determine which type of exercise exactly was the best for chronic low back pain, guess what came out on top? Pilates stabilization and motor control exercises!
“Active therapies where the patient is guided, actively encouraged to move and exercise in a progressive fashion are the most effective.”
If you haven’t tried a class at our studio yet, and you’ve been dealing with low back pain acutely or off and on for a while, let us help you! Our classes are taught by a chiropractor and a physical therapist assistant and are designed around healthy movement.
  • Learn how to stabilize your spine during hip movements for less pain when walking.
  • Become progressively stronger in hip hinging to get out of your chair with ease.
  • Practice lunging and single leg balance to decrease pain in daily activities and prevent falls.
We work closely with patients under Dr. Eric’s care to ensure a safe, effective workout.  Private lessons are also available with Dr. Kerri in 30 or 45 minute appointments.  If you would like more information or to schedule your first class, click here New Students.
