Most of us have also suffered from back pain ourselves - in fact, it's one of the most common health problems in the UK. About 30% of the workforce has taken time off because of back pain, costing the economy millions. Roughly 7 out of 10 people with back pain suffer with it for as long as ten years, or even longer!
Pilates relaxes and strengthens the group of muscles that support the spine. Relaxing these muscles is crucial because tension and muscle spasms contribute to pain.
Strengthening the back muscles is one of the major benefits of Pilates. Lynne Robinson, the co-founder of Body Control Pilates, recently confirmed: "The goal of Pilates is to make the spine both stable and mobile."
