AeroPilates for Back Pain
If you have ever woken up after an active day and felt a throbbing pain in your back, you are certainly not alone. Nearly 80 percent of Americans will experience lower back pain at some point in their life. However, there are definitely steps you can take to help improve your back health. One excellent method is by using an AeroPilates reformer to promote core and back strength. Today, we will discuss some of the reasons that AeroPilates is perfect for relieving back pain.
Improves the Understanding of Your Body
The most common reason people experience back pain is from lumbar spine compression and an imbalance of strength between the lower abdominals and lower back muscles. A deep abdominal muscle called the transverse abdominis supports your lumbar spine. If you are experiencing lower back pain, it is likely because your transverse abdominis is weak. AeroPilates strengthen these core muscles that provide support for your spine, teaching you proper body alignment and providing a gentle stretch to help relax tight lower back muscles.
In addition, it is important to resist the restriction of your movement when in pain. Slow, gentle movements are much better than lying still in your bed. AeroPilates helps to get you moving in a smooth and supported way, while also helping you improve the muscle deficiencies that are causing you pain and improving your flexibility.
Designed for Comfort
Although AeroPilates reformers may look scary to beginners, the truth is they are designed to be safe and comfortable. Many of the exercises you can find in Stamina Products ‘Introduction to AeroPilates’ can actually be done while lying down. These movements were developed to be low impact in order to lessen any chance of injury while developing your core muscles and flexibility. In this video, Pilates expert Marjolein Brugman helps lead you through the basics, on your way to achieving total body health.
