Some people are drawn to Pilates because of its proven body shaping effects the gentle stretching and lengthening movements draw the muscles into longer, leaner shapes. Others are drawn to it because they want a challenging whole-body workout that strengthens and increases stamina, but do not wish to lift weights. Still, others are referred to Pilates by their chiropractor, osteopath, physical therapist, or medical practitioner. Many people who have sustained a back or neck injury are drawn to Pilates, discovering it to be an excellent method of strengthening the body and preventing it from sustaining further injury. Pilates is a subtle technique that works at supporting and protecting the body as you exercise. However, if you have any specific complaint, suffer chronic pain or discomfort, or any sustained any injuries, particularly to the spine or neck, then you should seek medical advice before embarking on any exercise program.
