Caring for your spine, Pilates protects your health


2023-1-28--Caring-for-your-spine,-Pilates-protects-your-health

Mr. Pilates has said: The age of your spine represents your age. Spinal health is very important, and keeping the following exercises regularly will keep you from back pain and promote a healthy life.



As a Pilates instructor, I have observed that those clients who benefit most from Pilates have one thing in common: they practice consistently. However, studies have shown that the biggest obstacles to a regular practice are lack of time and lack of equipment. To address these issues, I recommend referring to a pattern of maintaining daily oral hygiene.


Just as consistent hygiene routines are adopted for daily dental care to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, a consistent spinal practice minimizes the likelihood of back injury and dysfunction while benefiting the joints of the extremities. Of course, Pilates spinal exercises are best done with Pilates equipment and instruction from an instructor, but when neither is available, practicing these spinal movement series is so much better than doing nothing. These exercises are not only designed to build movement, improve circulation and awaken muscles. They also warm you up for the necessary daily activities of the day.


The following movements address all planes of motion in the body and are inspired by some of the wonderful preparatory exercises developed by Ron Fletcher (a student of Mr. Pilates, a master) and traditional Pilates such as Mermaid, Semi-Circle and Long Stretch. When practicing them, it is important to focus completely, remembering The basic principles of Pilates, such as breathing, core, control, etc. (see Principles of Pilates Exercise). If you know that a movement is not working for you, make the appropriate modifications. For example, avoiding bending is recommended for osteoporosis.
