Does anyone do Clinical Pilates with a physio?

Dec 12, 2016 7:35 AM

I am recovering from multiple thoracic spine fractures, 5 damaged discs and pelvic fractures from 2 years ago. My physio bought a DMA reformer so she can do clinical Pilates. Some days I pull up really sore. The lower lumbar exercises exacerbates my thoracic spine vice versa. So it is a constant re-modify program depending on what hurts the most. I go twice a week and have hands on treatment as well. I'm waiting for the pain meds to kick in so I can sleep. What do you to ease the pain in between physio and clinical Pilates?

Have you tried yoga? There is a book called "back RX " It has helped me. Also heat either a bath or shower with the stream hitting where you hurt as hot as you can take it
