The Health Benefits of Pilates

There are many variations of exercises and stretches that can be done to alleviate muscle pain and increase flexibility.

One of the proven methods that we are going to discuss here is Pilates. They are well known to increase mobility among medical professionals such as physiotherapists and chiropractors such as ourselves. However, those who suffer from joint or muscle pain often underestimate the value that these exercises can have in reducing pain and improving flexibility.

Below, we are going to list just a few of the health benefits of Pilates:

  1. Muscular Strength

The exercises involved within Pilates are proven to increase the strength and tone of your abdomen, lower back, hips and the gluteal muscles. In addition to this, they help maintain the balance of strength on both sides of the body.

  1. Specificity

Pilates sessions are often delivered in one-to-one sessions. This means that the methods used are often specific to the individual; because of this bespoke attention, the exercises involved can be tailored whether you have mobility issues, injury, or are an athlete looking to improve your performance.

  1. Stabilisation

Improving your posture will reduce the likelihood of feeling more aches or pains in the future. Pilates help align your posture through exercises focused on stabilising the spine. Additionally, any spinal injuries can be safely rehabilitated through these methods too.

  1. Other Health Benefits

Surprisingly, Pilates have respiratory benefits as well as other non-physical advantages. The need to focus on deep breathing helps increase lung capacity, and the focus also helps to improve concentration, awareness and make you feel more relaxed.

Eventually, after a program of dedicated and specific sessions, you should be able to manage your stress levels more efficiently as well as feeling less pain in your joints and muscles.
