Do you suffer from chronic pain? If you’re one of the millions who struggle with daily pain, you’re likely eager for relief. For many, this comes only through medication, but there is actually a safer, more natural way to overcome pain – Pilates!
Today we’re going to talk about exactly what chronic pain is and how Pilates may be able to help you overcome it.
What’s chronic pain? Everyone has aches and pain from time to time, but chronic pain is different. To qualify as chronic pain, most doctors agree that the pain has to be consistent and last for six or more months. In reality, many chronic pain sufferers struggle through years of pain that causes regular discomfort and stands in the way of daily activities.
So if your pain is consistent, lingers for months on end, and interferes with your ability to do normal activities, you have chronic pain. Many people dealing with this type of pain have little recourse other than medication, but there might be a different solution – Pilates.
Pilates can help reduce many types of chronic pain, including the following:
- Muscle aches throughout the body
- Joint pain throughout the body
- Lower back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
By activating muscles, releasing tension, and improving muscle tone and muscle pliability, Pilates can reduce the impact of many forms of chronic pain. In fact, the MELT method has been shown to help people to overcome even serious pain issues. At our studio, we have MELT classes where we employ MELT methodology to help with fascial tissue remodeling, pain relief, and performance improvement.
