Pilates helps in back pain relief by focusing on alignment to address the structural imbalances. Back pain patients are taught to be aware about the neutral alignment of the spine in order to reduce stress on the spine and how to strengthen the muscles and joints that support the spine. Pilates back exercises that help to lengthen the spine are frequently prescribed to stretch the spine preventing spinal decompress. Pilates back exercises that works on the transverse abdominals muscles (deep muscles) helps to strengthen the core muscles that support and stablize the spine. Pilates props such as foam roller and multi-active balance stones also help in spinal release. To learn more, visit Pilates for Back Pain Relief.

In Singapore Pilates Central & Rehabilitation, individuals with chronic back pain are advised to do Pilates Private Trainining with our qualified Pilates Instructor, Joanna Ng. Personalised attention is needed for people suffering from chronic back pain as back exercises if done incorrecly could worsen the condition. Therapeutic bodywork such as myofascial release has to be done first to release the scar tissues before Pilates exercises can be incorporated.
