Low back pain is caused by injury to a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain). Common causes include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk, or arthritis.
So you are doing everything right to take care of your back. You are taking Pilates once or twice a week. Trying to watch your posture when you sit. And yet you continue to be plagued by bouts of lower back pain that can ruin your whole day, even your entire week.
Pilates improves strength of the core muscles. The stronger your core is the more power you can generate during your swing. Pilates is known for strengthening all the muscles of the core including the small deep spinal muscles that help to protect the spine.
