Why we live with pain:

Many individuals live with pain on a daily basis, suffering from conditions including: back pain; sciatica; repetitive strain injury; neck pain; shoulder injury; and knee and hip problems.

Most of these injuries are from over-used and over-stretched muscles or simply from lack of body alignment.

A regular pilates exercise program, designed specifically for the injury can help you become pain free and allow a freedom of movement you may not have experienced for years.

By stretching muscles regularly, pain is reduced and tension is released - all leading to increased strength and stamina.

Pilates is a gentle, non-aerobic exercise that will tone and strengthen your muscles without stressing your joints or heart.
