Yes, absolutely! We assist our clients to lose weight all the time. Please read my article Weight Loss with Pilates for more information.

The duration required to overcome a back injury depends on a couple of factors:

  1. The age and relative fitness of the individual
  2. The severity of the injury
  3. Your willingness to avoid movements which aggravate  the injury
  4. The level of recovery required

Generally speaking however most people should be pain free within the first two to four weeks, and back to their previous movement levels within 8 to 12 week, and then completely recovered in 3 to 6 months. A suitable Studio Pilates program can speed this recovery and significantly reduce the risk of re-injury by ensuring that the muscles that support the spine, our core muscles, are healthy, strong and active.

Please read my article on Reduce Back Pain with Pilates for more information.

In short, “Yes”. Pilates is excellent for managing and overcoming back pain. An effective Studio Pilates program can stabilize the injured segments of the spine, and gradually introduce movement as the injury heals and stabilizes. Our Studio Pilates sessions work the body, integrating and strengthening the core muscles with each movement. Core strength provides support to the injured area enabling it to heal and reduces the likelihood of recurring injury.
