Suffer from back pain? Learn how to fix it
Your spine needs to be kept mobile and oiled. That’s where movement comes in. Motion in the lotion for your spine and a high percentage of back pain suffers don’t move because you do not want to cause more pain. This creates a vicious cycle and it’s time to break it. Pilates alleviates back pain and it’s a tried and tested method endorsed by back surgeons.
3 million people in the UK are estimated to be taking long-term sick leave or say they are unable to work due to back pain. Two-thirds of workers feel that they are not supported in the workplace due to lack of provision (Nuffield Health – HR Review).
Imagine what these figures would be in 2020-22 with the past 18 months we’ve had to endure.
Many of the days lost to sickness or injury can be helped by simply keeping active. Movement really is the best medicine for mind and body and it is also a preventative tool to sickness that can be easily accessible to you. With many people having more flexibility in their working schedules to work from home, don’t put off doing something about your back. Time to make back pain a thing of the past like Anaya did 20 years ago when she started Pilates having been told to do so by a back surgeon.
We care so much about your back that we’ve even designed a series of exercises that you can do whilst you are sitting at your desk. Here’s our private video just for you on Neck & Shoulders.
Sitting at a desk all day and even commuting to work on a train or car can really affect your posture. Posture forms similarly to how candle wax moulds into new formations as it melts and cools. Repetitive strain or static held positions will do this to your body and leave you with stooped shoulders for example. You are then dealing with aches and pains in your neck and back. Now you can do something about it.
