Pilates Home Exercises for Lumbar Scoliosis

By Lynda Lippin, Master Pilates Teacher, Certified Personal Trainer, and Pelvic Clock® Educator http://pilatesteachermastermind.com


Scoliosis is a lateral (sideways) curvature of the spine, and often shows as an S shaped curve, with the ribcage or thoracic spine curving one way (say, to the right), with the lumbar spine curving the other way (in this example, left) to help balance things out for function.

Scoliosis can cause pain, as due to the position of the bones, there can be nerve and muscle issues. In severe cases, scoliosis can require bracing and surgery to prevent further slippage and maintain space in the torso for our internal organs…

Pilates Home Exercises for Chronic Hip Pain Relief
By Lynda Lippin, Master Pilates Teacher, Certified Personal Trainer, and Pelvic Clock® Educator http://pilatesteachermastermind.com


Our hip joints do a lot for us. Seriously, unless you are just lying flat on your back, your hip joints are getting some work. The hip joints are where the femurs (thigh bones) connect to the pelvis. They are ball-in-socket joints, and have quite a bit of range of motion in all directions.

Because the hips get so much work every day, there is a lot of muscle and connective tissue that help move and stabilize the hip joints. And because we don’t simply move, but also do more intense activities and artistic activities that can strain the hips (jumping, dancing, gymnastics, riding horses, etc.), these joints get a lot of wear and tear…

By Yana Blinova, MS, Inventor of Pelvic Clock® Exercise Device, Former Olympic Coach

The hip joints are a pair of symmetrical, large, weight-bearing joints surrounded by a strong structure of ligaments, tendons, nerves, and muscles.

Theoretically, hip joints should last a lifetime. Whereas hip pain in adults under 50 has never been considered normal, the number of relatively-young people suffering from hip pain is on the rise…

 Joseph Pilates developed his Contrology exercise system in the early 20th century, and even then he saw a lot of folks with back pain. Pilates believed then, as I believe now, that spine health is central to human wellness, and that there are specific exercises and ways of moving that will help us stay strong and mobile, and free of injury.

Home Exercise Program for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

By Caesar Cantone, PT, LAc

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a common and disabling back ailment found within the aging population, but can also occur less often in younger adults.  Stenosis actually refers to the narrowing, or closure, of an opening or space. Spinal nerves from the low back can actually become pinched when the spaces between vertebrae degenerate, or when abnormal bone growth forms.  This is called lumbar stenosis, and can make many walking activities very painful. If left untreated, it can lead to tingling in the legs and even permanent weakness.

Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain Exercises to Try at Home

By Yana Blinova, MS, Inventor of Pelvic Clock® Exercise Device, Former Olympic Coach

Sacroiliac (SI) joints play a crucial role in the body. As they connect the sacrum to the ilium (hip bone), they bear all the weight of the upper body. There are a number of muscles around the SI joints. If even one of these muscles fails to do its fair share of work, the rest of the muscles are strained. In many cases, this causes the ilium to rotate backward and become stuck, which leads to SI joint dysfunction, instability, and discomfort.
