Absolutely!!! The Pilates exercises are frequently recommended to help prevent and decrease back pain, including low back pain. They strengthen core support for the back, teach good alignment, and provide gentle stretches for tight back muscles.
Let's get started!
Pelvic Tilt to Pelvic Curl
Pelvic tilt is taught to almost everyone who has back pain, especially low back pain. It teaches us to use our abdominal muscles in a way that supports and lengthens the lower back.
One of the common causes of back pain is not weak back muscles, but weak abdominal muscles. Chest lift is a great ab strengthener.
Swan prep strengthens the back extensors, the muscles the hold us upright. These muscles are often weak and over-stretched in people who have back pain.
Child's pose is an easy and restful stretch for the back.
Cat-cow moves between a backstretch and a back extension exercise. It promotes flexibility in the spine. Many people use it as a warm-up exercise.
Apply the principles of core stability and good posture that you learn during your Pilates sessions to your everyday life. This will maximise the benefit you achieve from Pilates.
