We all know that Pilates is one of the most popular methods of conditioning out there, whether it’s to be to help with back pain, helping to prevent the chance of injury or just to feel better Pilates is more popular than ever.
Unfortunately many people out there are still not getting anywhere near as much benefit from their Pilates classes and in some cases people believe Pilates “doesn’t work”. The main reason for this is that people are simply not doing it right.
Fibromyalgia is a common long term condition; it causes widespread pain throughout the body. The causes of Fibromyalgia are still unknown. In this article we are going to look at Fibromyalgia, what you can for it and whether Pilates and/or massage can help with the symptoms.
One of the biggest reasons people start Pilates is to help some sort of injury or pain. Whether it’s lower back pain, hip pain or shoulder pain, Pilates is often recommended (keep in mind that this is not the only benefit Pilates has though)

In this article we are going to look at reasons why this might happen, and what you can do if it does.
