Back Care Pilates

Pilates is a system of movement based on a series of principles that allows the individual to develop finer core strength and control.

Pilates can help you manage back pain and recover from injuries.

Pilates is based upon the work of Joseph Pilates and his book ‘Contrology’ which laid out his principles and exercises. Joseph Pilates developed his system working with dancers and injured war veterans, with a view to rehabilitation from injuries.
