 Pilates exercises avoid painful moves, but continue to work the body so that the rest of the spine and joints don't become frozen 

  

Individuals with significant back problems may benefit from several one-on-one Pilates sessions with a qualified Pilates instructor. While more expensive than a group class or mat class, the time, money, and effort devoted to learning the exercises correctly can be well worth the investment, as exercises performed incorrectly can make a back problem worse.
