Q: How can posture alignment improve my backache?
A: Poor posture is the primary cause of neck and back problems, says physical therapist and Pilates instructor Ron Jegadeesh.
“The first thing people notice when they do Pilates is that their posture and alignment have changed. They have a sense of power, grace, elegance of movement, and self-confidence. As the sessions progress, they notice improved flexibility and strength,” Jegadeesh explains. “I also teach postural exercises that the client can do at home or at work. I ask them to make a habit of keeping their body in good alignment as they go about with their daily activities. They learn to sit taller, stand taller, and walk taller.”
