Back Pain
It is estimated that 70-90% of us will experience low back pain at some point in our lives. According to a recent report in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy, chronic back pain sufferers had a greater decrease in pain when performing a combination of pilates on the reformer and on the mat than those who performed other therapy programs only. For mild aching, the mat exercises alone were of benefit.

Here are a few quick tips for preventing back pain -
1) Slouching increases the risk of spinal stress. Sit tall using a lumbar support.
2) When lifting objects, bend at the knees rather than from the waist. Hold the object in close to the body.
3) Don't twist from the waist when moving objects from one surface to the other. Point the toes towards the location in which you are lifting or lowering objects.
