The Pilates exercise is not just for toning and shaping the body, but also provides spinal strength which allows for the easing of back pain and prevention of injury. At Canton Chiropractic Life Center, core strengthening is an important part of the patient treatment process for Dr. Cheryl Snyder Hughes because of its many benefits to supplementing chiropractic care.
Spine health and core strength are directly linked
The core of the body represents a group of muscles which include the rectus abdominis, the transverse abdominals, the obliques, the low back extensors, and the glute muscles. These muscles should be equally balanced and strong. Pilates is a system of exercises that focus on building strength from the core first.
Dr. Snyder-Hughes places an emphasis on working around what is called “neutral spinal alignment”. The neutral spinal alignment is the anatomical correct alignment of the spine. When strength is built from this aligment, the improper overloading of the joints with the body weight is significantly reduced (especially in the lower back).
Pilates instruction and chiropractic care go hand in hand
There are many common benefits between the goals of chiropractic care and Pilates exercise. We also focus on syncing the breath with movement that helps to develop a deeper mind to body connection and better body awareness.
When you visit our clinic, Dr. Snyder-Hughes will often combine Pilates exercise with chiropractic care to produce the best overall results.
