Can exercises be changed if I feel pain?

May 26, 2016 1:41 pm Published by

A Pilates workout is gentle and controlled and is ideal for everyone. Every one can work at their own level or pace.

A Physiotherapist will be able to modify the exercises to accommodate your limitations, continually challenge you within your range and monitor your improvements.

If you have neck pain you can still work the abdominals by keeping the head, neck and shoulders on the mat. To increase strength in the neck you can lift your neck intermittently throughout the exercises.

As you develop your core strength you develop stability throughout your entire torso. This is one of the ways Pilates can help with lower back pain. As the trunk is properly stabilised, pressure on the back is relieved and the body is able to move freely and efficiently.
