Hi, I want to do palates, so I rang a local studio run by a group of physio's. AsI wanted an assessment before committing myself to anything and spent an hour with a physio this morning, who gave me an examination and took a history as they do lots of different treatments there.
I was worried she would advise the expensive one to one sessions, but she didn't, she said the classes of palates, using machines in the studio, led by a physio, would be best.

She said my hips are weak and my back muscles and if I work on them I might find I get less pain and find walking better. All I have to do is wait for a new course in a few weeks, they will phone me.

I am glad I went, as she said the things I do for the pain are right and now, at last, I'll be doing something positive to help myself.

I feel tired tonight!!!

Love Suexx

    That's great Sue!

    so pleased the appointment went so well and you will be able to start on the Pilates soon. :wink:

    very reassuring too that she was so thorough and able to tell you that you're doing everything right. :!:

    it will be soo good if the Pilates strengthens those back muscles which might also help with your pain. :D

    please post and let us know when you get started.

    Hi Sue, it should be more fun doing the pilates as a class. I'm intrigued though that you use machines ... can you tell me more, or not till the after the first class?

    Its had to describe the machines, some are different, but low benches that have overhead bits attached and look like a cross between a rowing machine that slides. I'll tell you more when I know more!!! :shock:

    Intriguing!!

    Still it should be easier to get on and off the benches than the floor!
