Pilates for Neck Pain

Neck pain can affect anyone and is a common problem for many people. Our physiotherapists often see and treat office workers who have developed neck pain due to poor posture and spinal alignment when sitting at desks. Pilates exercises focus on strengthening the stability muscles in the neck, in addition to those of the central core, to reduce neck pain and improve overall postural alignment.

How it works

Physiolates for neck pain works by targeting and strengthening the stability muscles of the neck through a series of exercises. Exercises are taught by our highly experienced physiotherapists and are specifically designed to activate the deep neck flexors to offload the neck joints. Increasing the strength of these muscles gives the neck more support and can help to reduce pain.

Pilates incorporates correct postural alignment and core stability exercises while working the body as a whole and retrain correct postural position. Improving posture addresses the cause of neck pain for many people and significantly lowers the risk of neck pain recurring.
