Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to back pain!

By the time people come to see me they are usually in a great deal of pain and I spend a great deal of time helping them through it. Sometimes it is self inflicted because of bad posture, and a lack of exercise – other times it is just pure bad luck because of a car injury.

In the first case it is preventable. You can avoid ever having to seek out an osteopath for chronic back pain if you just take some time out to strengthen your back while it is still healthy. Yes, you put together exercises for back pain and help yourself get better – but ultimately, not having pain in the first place is a better option.

Pilates is a really great way to strengthen your body as well as improve your posture which is why we run an 8 week program at our clinic in Stafford Street EH3 – you can book yourself on to our classes and be taken through a wonderful stress relieving, body strengthen exercise regime that will help you look and feel great.

To find out more and book a place call the active-x office on 0131 221 1415 – we like to keep our groups small and there are only 10 places available.
