How do Back Pain exercises work?

First, the appropriate exercise programme is prescribed once its determined what the primary impairment is causing the pain. Secondly, your qualified instructor can decide which exercises are best suited for you.

For example, if a person has a very stiff upper back and hips, the movement in their daily activities will likely come from the more giving lower back. Therefore, the ideal exercises would be aimed at improving the lack of mobility in their hips and upper back and stabilising the lower back.
Back pain exercises are therefore aimed at strengthening the hyper mobile joints in order to improve force closure. This is especially important if the hyper mobility is the main contributor to the irritant; in other words, to the cause of the pain.
Thus, finding the right exercises or reformer group classes and obtaining competent instruction is fundamental to reducing pain.

Pilates offers a wide range of exercises that focus on strengthening the deep stabilising muscles of the core. These muscles play a crucial role in lumbar stability. Similarly, Pilates exercises aim to mobilise the stiff spinal segments and muscles, easing the load on the more mobile joints. Generally speaking, these exercises can be tailored to each individual’s needs.
