PILATES AND SPINAL REHABILITATION

The spinal column is inherently unstable and relies on muscles to support it. These muscles when strong are able to control the movement of the spine at all times, allowing the spine to move freely and safely, even when under load.

Sometimes these muscles, often referred to as the core, can become weak, maybe due to an injury or through simple lack of use. When this happens the affected individual will often find that they are getting recurring back or neck pain, usually as a result of a fairly trivial incident.

Spinal Rehabilitation is a tailor made program of very specific exercises, designed to strengthen and balance a weak core they stabilize muscles and improving posture. This is done under the supervision of specially trained fitness instructors in our rehabilitation gym. The programs generally involve two sessions a week for twelve weeks which research has shown to be necessary in order to achieve optimum results.

Many of our patients go on to enrol in our in house Pilates program to maintain their postural improvements . (To find out more click here. www.exepilates.co.uk )
