I started Pilates training to help me with my knee problem. I have suffered from osteoarthritis in my right knee since I was young and this left me dealing with constant pain and swelling.
After experiencing back pain for approx. 20 years culminating in serious disc problems in 2006, which left me virtually immobilized for about 8 months, my consultant recommended that I take up Pilates rather than the ‘more rigorous’ Yoga session that I was attending.
On January 1st this year I sustained a bad spinal injury to my back after a jump from a rock into the water, I fractured T12 and had a burst vertebrae at L1 with some compression of the spinal cord. I have two Titanium rods and four Pedicular screw in situ from T11 to L1.
Pilates had never been on my fitness agenda even though colleagues and friends had raved about the benefits. I perceived it as too slow and maybe not enough adrenaline rush. I was mistaken.
We all have to keep moving to keep fit and healthy. A knee injury and some joint pains meant that I needed to avoid high impact exercise. Since first trying Pilates, I have made it a priority. By developing a strong core, I have kept mobile and active and I feel good.
