Middle aged guy with low back pain? Me too, until eight years ago when I went to see Liz Jowsey. I had suffered back pain on and off for years, and then had surgery to trim a disc. It worked, for a bit, but then the pain came back. I went to Liz thinking nothing could be done. I was just someone who had back pain and, it seemed, always would. Me? Pilates? No chance! But I was desperate and so gave it a go. Saw an improvement within six months — going to one class a week — and by the end of the year was pain free for the first time in years and have been since. Middle aged guy with low back pain? Do yourself a favour. Book and appointment with Liz and the team and get it sorted.Simon Middleton

What is Pilates Matwork?
Pilates exercises target the deep postural muscles to re-balance the body, build great core stability and ensure correct postural alignment which in turn restores natural, normal movement.
In a Pilates class the focus is on the Transverses Abdominis, Diaphragm, the muscles of the pelvic floor and a deep back muscle called Multifidus. Together these muscles form a natural corset around your centre which stabilise the lumbar spine, building strength from the inside out.
Pilates helps reshape your body, promoting a longer, leaner, more toned look and achieves the perfect balance between strength and flexibility. It is also a great way to relieve stress and unwanted tension.
Pilates is the perfect form of exercise for everyone, from the athlete looking to enhance their performance and avoid injury to first-time exercisers or those returning to exercise after injury or illness. It is especially recommended for those suffering back problems.
The benefits include:
- Improved posture and body awareness
- Increased joint mobility and flexibility
- A flatter stomach
- Enhanced performance for athletes
- Relaxation and improved well being
- Improved movement patterns and balance
- Greater strength and muscle tone
- Less incidence of back pain
- Fabulous muscle tone especially in the bottom, thighs and stomach
