I recommend pilates and specialist physio for anyone who has ever suffered with pain or fear of movement. When I first met Julia I walked in her treatment room unable to move most of my body. My whole body was locked shut after major spinal surgery. I was so protective of every joint I was terrified to move for fear of pain. Slowly throughout my first session Julia managed to get me to make slow easy movements using different size balls to roll over & move with. After the first hour spent with Julia I felt my body relax. I could have skipped across the car park when I left, the relief in my body was huge. I joined the pilates group and my flexibility slowly came back. I purchased the different squishy balls to use at home and the green ball remains permanently with me in my bag or car. I am not ashamed to use it at any point. The movements and exercises helped me through the most painful times, when I felt my back was going into spasm I used the movements and stretches taught by Julia and they helped me control my pain. I recommend pilates and specialist physio for anyone who has ever suffered with pain or fear of movement. I have now had a second spinal fusion and after just 8 weeks I was back using the exercises & stretches and it has helped speed up my recovery.
