So many people seek out Pilates to help with lower back pain.
***Make sure you see a medical professional to make sure you are cleared to exercise! If you're not sure why your back hurts, don't expect your Pilates teacher to figure that out. It's not in our scope of practice.***
I outline spine anatomy, review the abdominal muscles and what they do, discuss some common causes of lower back pain, why "tech neck" and sitting can lead to lower back pain, and explain the basics of feeling your best supported spine position.
As Romana Kryzanowska (student of Joe Pilates) used to say, "Bad back, keep flat!"
