Pilates for Back Pain: Does it Work?

pilates, NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City

Several people seeking NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City for low back pain ask us about Pilates. “Does it work for back pain relief?” or “Is it safe for people with chronic low back pain?” are among the many questions we hear from our patients. So, is it really worth trying? Let’s help you learn more about Pilates and your alternative source of back pain relief.


Pilates for People with Achy Backs

Pilates is a well-known body-conditioning exercise that promotes improved health and releases muscle tension. It consists of precise movements done in a specific order. Some examples of these movements include pelvic tilting, lateral breathing, and cobra stretches. 

When done correctly, Pilates engages several muscles at once. While Pilates doesn’t look as intense as other forms of physical activities, many people swear by the benefits that they enjoy, including: 

  • Improved posture
  • Stronger core muscles
  • Enhanced body awareness
  • Improved energy metabolism
  • Increased pelvic stability

Studies show that it also comes in handy in relieving back pain as it helps increase flexibility and tones various muscles needed to support proper posture. We strongly recommend including Pilates in your physical fitness routine and coordinating with a professional instructor to reap the benefits and keep your back pain and other symptoms at bay. 

Additionally, when you perform the exercises, listen to your body. Start slow and gradually increase the intensity of the activities to avoid putting excessive mechanical stress on your already irritated sciatic nerve.
