HERNIATED DISCS & PILATES

March 17, 2018

If you have a herniated disc, one of the rubbery pads between your spinal vertebrae has ruptured, allowing the interior to push through and irritate nearby nerves. Pilates is one of many exercises people have turned to for relief from herniated disc pain. It’s named after its creator, Joseph Pilates, and focuses on development of your “power house” or core, including your abdominal, gluteal, and paraspinal muscles. The basic technique uses a controlled range of motion while concentrating on breathing and concentration to decompress the spine, with exercises performed on the Reformer and Cadillac, where the back can be held in a safe position avoiding any forward bending or other uncontrolled movements. By strengthening the core, your legs, buttocks, hips, arms, shoulders, neck, but keeping your spine in a neutral position, you can release the pressure of the spine and learn to use the other parts of your body to move more upright and with ease.
