Tailored Pilates Classes
DESIGNED TO Achieve Your Goals

What about all this back pain?

According to the NIH, National Library of Medicine, low back pain is a common musculoskeletal problem globally. The Mayo Clinic tells us that 80% of adults worldwide will experience back pain in their lifetime. Any of us who’ve fallen into this staggeringly large group of people can attest to the disruption that back pain can bring to our work and home lives. We can also affirm the strong correlation of back pain with depression and emotional distress of all types. Swan Pilates can help you manage your back pain and get you back to a full life.

We’ve learned that attention to our spinal health is as important as attention to our oral health. Daily, correctly applied interventions (activities, fitness programs, especially Pilates) promote the health of our entire body. Pilates’ focus on core strength and flexibility promotes spinal health as identified in the Harvard Health Publishing, Harvard Medical School, August 1, 2020, Staying Healthy.

Here’s a 3-minute “On the Go Pain Relief” video from Susan Swan, Owner, and Instrutor for Swan Pilates, with several suggestions on back pain relief that can be practiced daily. We know we all sit too long, slump over our computers, or hunker over our cell phones, and our backs will hurt. This quick intervention can help.

We want you to be well and at home in your own body.
