Pilates for Osteoporosis

Back Care Pilates classroom

Being diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopaenia at any age can be quite frightening.

It can also be hard to know where to start with exercise. You are told that certain exercises should be avoided, such as sit-ups, while we know that weight-bearing exercise pitched at the right level for you can help your bones to get stronger. There are also postural changes that can occur because of osteoporosis that can be addressed.

We have designed a pilates programme for people with low bony density or those who are keen to optimise their bone health.

This class runs in Ashford Community Centre Wednesdays at 12.30, 7 week course is €120. If you are interested please contact us at info@eastcoastphysio.ie or call 0404-49781.

As a sufferer of sporadic back pain, which was becoming increasingly more frequent, I became a regular client of East Coast Physio.The team there were fantastic at dealing with my acute pain and gave me great advice and exercises to prevent further episodes.

As a result I have become a regular student in their Back Care Pilates classes and I haven’t had any significant problems since. I would highly recommend their services.
