Maybe Pilates would be your “thing”. A study of chronic musculoskeletal pain patients who tried a Pilates-based exercise program discovered that the pain patients better functioned and coped with their pain condition more independently and effectively. They did better at work, took pleasure in hobbies more, were motivated to keep exercising, did more to make do with their own pain conditions without outside help. These, in turn, motivated them to experience a healthier way of life. (3) These benefits came without back surgery.


Researchers established a trial of exercise for back pain patients headed to back surgery. They described the back pain condition to the patients thoroughly. They set up exercise programs for each patient to do. They found that back pain patients who experienced this pre-surgery program of description and exercise gained benefit in several ways: The back pain sufferers felt better exercising than being inactive while waiting for surgery. The back pain sufferers’ mental state got better as they exercised. They had time to reflect on their treatment and lifestyle options. Even patients who didn’t describe symptom improvement responded well to this program as they thought themselves more confident managing their pain themselves.
