Arthritis is a debilitating condition affecting the joints and is linked with the aging process. Pain is caused by inflammation that is made worse when the cartilage that lines the joint surfaces is damaged or worn. Maintaining good muscle strength and control around the joint is imperative to limit pain and maintain mobility and function. Doing this can stave off the need for surgical interventions such as joint replacements and reduce the need for medications.
Pilates classes are extremely popular ways to stay fit and recover strength in your abdominal and pelvic musculature. If you suffer from lower back pain, you may find these classes extremely helpful in reducing the severity and frequency of your flare ups. We run high and low level classes to suit all levels.
