Pilates for lower back pain

Pilates workout to support relief of back pain

Looking for relief from ongoing back pain? Build up your core strength through Pilates. These simple Pilates exercises and stretches aim to strengthen core and back muscles to reduce lower back pain.

Back pain affects a lot of us. Especially those with jobs that requires a lot of standing or sitting for long periods of time. These Pilates exercises can help you build up core strength to help deal with this kind of stress. Be aware that this is not an ‘instant fix’ building strength takes time.

Do not over exert yourself. If you are unsure as to whether Pilates is for you, please seek professional medical advice.
