Here are 3 Pilates exercises you can do right now to help with your lower back pain.

Hey, I’m Rheine, from Miami Physio and Lakelands Physio, and today I’m going to show you 3 Pilates exercises you can do right now for lower back, and how Clinical Pilates can help you. 

What’s the difference between Pilates and Clinical Pilates? Pilates usually caters to the general public and focuses on improving overall physical health whereas Clinical Pilates takes into account an individual’s specific injuries and physical needs. Additionally, Clinical Pilates usually starts with an assessment by a certified Clinical Pilates instructor – normally a physiotherapist, like me. This allows us to tailor a program with targeted exercises that address the patient’s issues and reduces the risk of aggravating their condition. 

So which one is best for you? This depends entirely on your goals and focus. If you’re looking to focus on your overall health and wellbeing, then a Pilates class, whether reformer- or matwork-based, is the best option for you. However, if you have an injury, a recent surgery, or a condition that needs careful evaluation and care, then Clinical Pilates with a trained physiotherapist is the best choice for you. 

At Miami Physiotherapy, we have both Pilates classes, led by a certified Pilates instructor, as well as Clinical Pilates sessions, directed by specially-trained physiotherapists. If you’re interested in joining one of our classes or if you want a 1-1 session, contact us today. 

Now I’m going to show you 3 exercises to help strengthen your core and mobilize your spine to help with your lower back pain:

  1. Scissors
  2. Supine Twist
  3. Bridge

Repeat each exercise 10 times, 3 times per day.

How Can Clinical Pilates help you with your back pain?

Research has shown that Clinical Pilates is an effective way to reduce disability and pain in people with lower back pain because it helps strengthen the whole body and focuses on maintaining control during various movements. It also has other benefits such as improvements in posture, core, and pelvic floor strength, flexibility, muscle control and strength, as well as balance.

If you have lower back pain or any other condition that you think might benefit from Clinical Pilates, give us a call now to book your initial assessment with one of our physiotherapists.
