Pilates is an internationally renowned form of rehabilitation used to promote overall body agility, strength, and good posture.

Pilates for the treatment of back pain
Pilates is an excellent therapy for the treatment of back pain.
Many of our clients over the years have let me know how they have found Pilates has helped to reduce their back pain and allow them to move with more ease. It has helped them carry out normal day to day tasks like cutting the grass or getting the shopping out of the boot without pain!
