Sophie Jones, owner of the Kennington Osteopathic Practice, can refer patients to the Pilates classes if she feels that they will be one of the patients that benefit from them. Those attending the classes at the Kennington Osteopathic Practice will also have the benefit of working with someone with an understanding of back problems and disc injuries. In addition, as Sophie works so closely with her patients she can ensure that the Pilates classes are targeted especially for their individual needs.

Pilates and Osteopathy in OxfordNew Pilates Classes in oxford

In many ways, Pilates is the ideal partner for osteopathy. Both forms of therapy are ideal for patients with disc injuries and provide gentle, subtle actions that will help to encourage an injury to heal rather than adding additional stress to the joints. Pilates is especially beneficial to patients with disc injuries. It can be difficult for patients with back problems to find a suitable exercise regimen; however, many patients with back pain or a disc injury could find that Pilates is ideal for them.

The Benefits of Pilates for Disc Injuries

Anyone who has had a back injury will know just how painful it is. However, Pilates has been shown to provide some pain relief to people with a disc injury or lower back pain.  Pilates can help to build strength in the lower back area making it less susceptible to injuries. Pilates can also help to stretch and strengthen the lower back area, relieving areas of tightness.

Pilates and Core muscles

New Pilates Classes in OxfordIn Pilates, you’ll often hear references to the core muscles; the core muscles include your back, your abdominals, and the hips.  It is a well-known fact that by keeping the core muscles of the body strong, a person can reduce their chance of a back injury. Pilates is extremely effective as creating strong, streamlined abdominal muscles and strong stomach muscles will help protect the lower back area from painful injuries.

Maintaining Mobility and Posture

However, Pilates will help to maintain mobility without straining the lower back muscles.  Many people report an improved posture after practising Pilates for a while. Good posture is well-known for helping to keep the lower back and spine healthy so anyone prone to back injuries can benefit from the regular practice of Pilates.
