Pilates has become one of the biggest balanced, safest, and most effective recommendations for those suffering from back, neck, shoulder and hip pain. At Pilates Dynamics, we have developed a programme on the Mat and the Reformer which focuses on back, neck, shoulder and hip pain. 

Pilates Dynamics is aware that back, neck, shoulder and hip pain has become one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. According to a study conducted by Ryan Fiorenzi in 2020, 80% of adults suffer from back pain and 50% of the working population report having lower back pain which disrupts their work performance. These values are concerning, which shows that every 1 in 3 people suffer from back pain. At Pilates Dynamics, we have made it a priority to assist individuals that are experiencing back pain by using Joseph Pilates’ Contrology, which is a rewarding and an invigorating exercise program. 

 

At Pilates Dynamics, exercises are done to strengthen the core and lengthen the spine which can be done using different equipment referred to a Pilates Large Equipment machines at the studio such as: Reformers, Cadillacs, Towers, Ladder Barrels or just the Mat and a variety of smaller equipment.  Strengthening of the core and lengthening of the spine are great ways to reduce body pain in individuals. Individuals also learn the correct recruitment of abdominal muscles to protect the spine and to act as a supportive corset for the whole trunk. 

 

Due to an increase in sedentary lifestyles and technology, individuals find themselves seated in hunched positions for long periods of time and when they do engaged in movement, it is done incorrectly with no awareness or consciousness of their body position or posture. At Pilates Dynamics we have well trained instructors who teach clients and students to perform certain exercises in the neutral spine position which teaches efficient posture and ideal alignment. Individuals will find that do to having a better posture, they will feel more aligned, and have less pain to tackle the multitude of activities that compose their daily lives. 

 

At Pilates Dynamics we look beyond the spectrum of just exercise by aiming to assist the individual holistically to not only focus on reducing back, shoulder, hip and neck pain, but to also reduce the chances of back, neck, shoulder and hip pain progressing.

 

Pilates Dynamics keeps in mind that: the quality of your movement while exercising is always more important than any quantitative striving you do and will ensure that all the exercises are done to relieve you from back, neck, shoulder and hip pain – and not to further aggravate the pain.
