Hey you with the worn wheat pack. Yes you. Start managing your lower back pain and free yourself from couch potato status with Pilates.
An Aussie study found suffers of chronic lower back pain benefit from two sessions of Pilates for 30 to 60 minutes each. But don’t chuck the heat pack just yet as it takes 3 to 6 months for improvements to kick in.
When starting out aim to be in a small class or in a private session with your physio to ensure correct use of the specialised equipment and supervision to prevent further injury.
