If you are looking at back pain prevention, then the ‘Healthy Back’ group classes (‘one-to-one’ sessions also available) will give you a gentle, balanced workout with the focus on strengthening the core abdominals that do so much to support your back, improve the quality of your movements and keep your spine flexible and strong.
Pilates helps many of our Osteopathic patients to improve posture and overall flexibility. Increasing core stability is particularly helpful for back pain sufferers. A combination of Pilates and Osteopathy will ensure the best possible combination of muscular and skeletal treatment and rehabilitation. Helen Smith is a highly qualified Pilates Instructor, professional and thorough in her approach. I am happy to recommend her to all my patients. I use Pilates as an integral part of my own fitness regime to improve my sports performance and prevent work-related repetitive injuries.
