Why Physio Pilates Is So Effective In Managing Back Pain?



Studies have shown almost 80% of people experience low back pain at some point in their life. Most episodes settle within 4-6 weeks with a course of physiotherapy allowing for a quicker recovery and a reduced likelihood of recurrence and chronicity.

There are body structures which may cause back pain either directly or indirectly, along with help from the central nervous system. These may include overly tense muscles which may contain trigger points, faulty nerves and sensitive joints. Back pain may also arise from organ’s such as the kidneys, blood vessels and tumours which makes a thorough examination by a medically trained professional essential.

With regards treating lower back pain, both acute and in particular more long-standing or ‘chronic’ low back pain benefits from active movement. In particular movement which feel generally comfortable and has no effect on or helps the pain feel better. In addition to movement, Physio lead Pilates as an exercise system will also help restore flexibility to areas of the back which may have stiffened, as well as restoring strength to area’s of the spine which may have weakened. This problems may have possible caused, or been a result of your back pain. In either case the Physio lead Pilates system is a safe and effective way to fix the problem under the guidance of a Chartered Physiotherapist.
