Kim Gladfelter, right, instructs clients as they perform back-strengthening exercises in her Fremont Avenue studio. Pilates can help people with back pain function better in their daily lives.
This question came to me at the clinic, and I wanted to share it with you:
“Kim, I’m desperate to get back into shape after suffering with a bad back for a long time. Can you continue to stay fit and active when long-standing back pain still gets in the way? Physical therapy is a great help, but I want to do more by myself while I’m receiving treatment. I’m just scared, a bit nervous and don’t know what type of exercise is safe.” – Melissa, 49
