Pilates reduces chronic back pain


Do you need a compelling reason to get yourself to the Pilates studio this week?

I hope this is it: researchers found more evidence that Pilates can relieve lower back pain.  The study, published in Clinical Rehabilitation, found that patients who practiced Pilates twice a week for 50 minutes felt decreased pain and enhanced body function. Of course, this rewarded them with a better quality of life and a greater satisfaction with their treatment plans.

Less than two hours of exercise in exchange for less pain and a better disposition? I think that's a good trade-off, don't you?
