Pilates Can Help With Managing Pain

Chronic pain is one of the most common causes of long-term disability worldwide. This pain can be due to numerous reasons, ranging from fibromyalgia to musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis. But if there’s anything that can counter this pain and provide you with the much-needed respite, then it is Pilates.

Pilates has a mind-body approach which means that it works on both the neurological and the muscular systems, resulting in true freedom from pain.



Our muscles and joints get worked out to various degrees, depending upon our daily routines. In ideal day to day scenarios, our body can easily distribute the loads amongst various muscle groups and joints as we move. However, due to accidents or improper posture, these muscles and joints can get damaged or strained. This happens because some of the muscles or joints have to do more work than their fair share, resulting in wear and tear.

One of the main goals of Pilates is to bring about a sense of balance in your body. Pilates helps in strengthening every part of the body in order to relieve the stress from overworked parts. It helps to make our body more accustomed to moving in sync, thereby resulting in even loading of joints and consequently lesser strain.

As we have already established before, Pilates is a mind-body exercise. Hence, it is not just about strengthening your body. Strengthening your mental fortitude is equally important.

Pilates helps induce mindfulness, relieving the mental stresses and directing your energy towards healing your body. It also has a huge impact on improving focus and reducing negative emotions, both of which are essential to be truly healthy.

Another thing that Pilates promotes and which greatly helps with managing pain is a proper breathing practice. We all know that Pilates helps in strengthening the core of our body. Since the diaphragm is also a part of our core, Pilates in turn helps in improving our breathing process. Just as Joseph Pilates said, “Breathing is the internal shower of the body”, and it is equally important to keep the inside of your body fit to manage the outside pain. Proper breathing will improve the flow of blood in your body, help flush out the toxins and help in reducing inflammation, thereby reducing pain.



Pilates is a proven and effective way of building strength and bringing about a balance in the body. But you need proper guidance in order to do it properly and for pain management.
