The latest research tells us that often people have never had a physical trauma to cause back pain like a car accident, falling, or lifting something heavy.
There are usually a combination of factors that cause back pain which could include overuse, poor posture or other stressors.
Keeping in mind everyone is different, here are our expert tips.
Shoulders are a common area of injury. They are the linch-pin of many movement functions and control, that once pain sets in, it can make day-to-day activities extremely painful and difficult to do. Simple tasks such as driving your car, working on the computer or washing your hair all become a challenge.
Flexibility is something that all dancers spend a lot of time working on, particularly trying to get those flat splits, high kicks and perfect jetes.
However, do you know if what you are doing is actually helping and making a long term difference and are you doing it in an injury-free, safe way?
Diastasis Recti is the separation of your most external abdominal muscles. The main cause of a Diastasis is due to the continuous stretching of the connective tissue and the increase of the intra-abdominal force. Normally, the separation will lessen within the first 8 weeks post-partum, but it is common for many women that it stays stretched beyond this.
Will Clinical Pilates Help My Arthritis?
Finding the exercise activity and intensity that’s right for you isn’t always as easy as it sounds. We often see clients in our practice with advanced arthritis who are diligent with a general homogenous program to…for example.. “strengthen my glutes and quads”. They are putting in their best effort to maintain their joint function but only finding they are getting sorer and tighter and wonder if what they are doing is just making things worse.
But there is a way forward. “Exercise” is not a “One Size Fits All” approach when it comes to arthritis. Your physio can work with you to determine the best body positions, loads and types of exercises for you to support, rather than further compromise joint health.
