Many people start Pilates in order to ‘protect' their spine or help with longstanding low back pain.
But does it actually help?
As always you will find research that support it but you will also find research against. (You can find research for anything if you look hard enough).
But the truth is that WHAT you do doesn't matter as much as doing something….ANYTHING!
Pretty much all exercise has been found to help in one way or another.
So if you enjoy doing Pilates and if it makes you feel good, then please don't stop.
But if you don’t enjoy it then don't do it. Simple as. Find something else. Just get you moving!
