Clinical Pilates for Back Pain
Back pain is extremely common in Australia and around the World. Approximately 20% or four million people report back pain or disc problems in Australia. It is estimated that 80% of the population may experience back pain at some stage during their life-time. The people who have found to be at the highest risk of developing back pain are those who are overweight or physically inactive, required to sit for long periods at work, repetitive lifting and bending, and athletes who over train.
Research has also found stress and smoking place people at a higher risk of developing back pain. People who suffer from conditions such as arthritis, scoliosis, and cancer may also be at a higher risk of developing back pain. Back pain also seems to become more apparent as people get older, particularly from 30-40 years of age.
Back pain can have debilitating affects on an individual, reducing their quality of life. It common for people who suffer from back pain to become less involved at work and social activities, as well as exercise. Back pain, particularly when it is chronic can have a massive impact on an individuals life – relationships, sex life, family life, and community life. At a certain point psychological health can begin to suffer due to the back pain itself and a combination of the previous problems. The recent research indicates it essential for people who suffer from back pain to keep moving for an effective outcome. Carefully monitored exercise programs designed to correct any abnormalities in mobility, strength, and flexibility are proving to achieve the best results for people suffering from back pain.
Pilates on the Reformer: The Machine That Makes Pilates Even More Fun
Numerous exercises and workout routines have been developed over the past century to strengthen the body and harmonize the mind. Of these exercises, only a very few have been able to attain widespread acceptance among workout enthusiasts worldwide. Pilates is one of these exercises that now boast a loyal following, along with thousands of Pilates experts providing guidance and instructions. Reformer Pilates is a form of the traditional Pilates that employs equipment-based techniques for a number of added advantages over the classical one.
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates during the closing periods of the First World War. In 1918, he invented Pilates while operating a fitness school in Germany. In its original form, Pilates was designed to work with the balance of the body to gain physical fitness and flexibility for the entire body. The main principle of Joseph Pilates’ new form of workout was that if you have a strong core, you have an overall stronger body and harmonious mind. By the term ‘core’, he referred to the muscles in the abdomen region of the body, as well as the muscles in the lower back areas. Originally developed for the rehabilitation of the prisoners of the war, the exercise was later picked up by other fitness trainers around the world, becoming a common method of workout for people from all walks of life.
Unlike the hardcore gymnasium workouts, Pilates is a rather slow-paced, sometimes relaxed form of exercise. The main focus is put of breathing and stretching the body to gain flexibility while building up core strength. Using resistance and endurance techniques, Pilates builds up internal fortitude for the body and eases the mind. In practice, Pilates resembles classical yoga and other mind-easing techniques in a lot of ways.
An advanced form of Pilates is the Reformer Pilates. Developed within Joseph Pilates’ lifetime, it is an equipment-based form of Pilates that works under the original principle of Pilates. Whereas traditional Pilates is performed on a mat in general without any equipment, Reformer Pilates use a certain type of device called the Pilates Reformer.
The Pilates Reformer is an instrument that is about five feet in length and two and a half feet in width. It is constructed with numerous springs embedded in it, adding extra ability to lightly bounce on it. There’s also bars and handles at the head and foot of the machines, giving the user the ability to grasp and hold on to the machine if necessary. The main working basic for the Pilates Reformer is that it builds up resistance against the body to a greater extent which makes Reformer Pilates all the more effective.
There are a number of benefits of the Reformer Pilates if you perform it on regular basis. Increased flexibility of the body and the mind is a great upside of the Reformer Pilates, as it helps the stretch the whole body, from muscles to muscle to limb to limb, giving you a thoroughly worked out body.
Reformer Pilates can also provide you with greater core strength than the regular mat can offer. In mat-based Pilates, the weight of the body itself is used to build up resistance against the body to build up endurance, which in reality has a reduced effect. However, the Reformer machine provides with added resistance against the body that in effect helps the body with better chances of building up endurance and muscle strength.
Another significant benefit of Reformer Pilates is that is help the user gain a much better and improved posture. For many people, a bad or defective posture causes a lot of pain and ache, especially in the lower back and spinal regions. If exercises on the Reformer machine are done correctly and on a regular basis, postures can be corrected to reduce chances of such aches.
Interestingly, the Reformer Pilates offers a much better chance of gaining a muscular physique than the regular Pilates. This is due to the fact that in Reformer Pilates, the exercises can be localized to build up muscles in certain areas of the body, especially the abdomen and back region, to give you a toned look.
