Back Care Repertoire

STOTT Pilates

STOTT PILATES® Ultimate Back Care

Statistically, more than half of the adult population will experience low back pain, either acute or ongoing, at some point. Mat-based Pilates exercises can be a valuable tool in the prevention and care of these issues. In keeping with current research, this session, developed by the Merrithew Health and Fitness™ team, focuses on progressions through three levels of exercise modifications that are beneficial in a number of circumstances. Major focus is placed on creating awareness and endurance of the local stabilizers of the lumbar spine and pelvic region. Although individual injuries are not covered, generalizations for specific exercise prescriptions are reviewed as a foundation for program development. Exercise choices for the prevention of back injuries and scope of practice concerns are also discussed.
