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.

The Pilates Principles are:
Promoting the mind-body connection
Bringing your focus to the center of your body
Proper safe and complete muscle control with mindfulness
One exercise with focus, concentration, and accuracy
Deep, controlled, diaphragmatic breathing
The emphasis on correct alignment and posture during exercise
Grace, ease, and fluidity applied to all movements
These principles create a style of exercise and movement that will improve your posture and could help you reduce and manage back pain and injuries.
