I started Pilates in 2000 with so much back pain it was hard for me to turn over in bed at night without crying. I could not heal myself with conventional methods even with all my background and training. So I tried Pilates and after the first week, my back began to feel better. It took a while, but now I live pain free. This is why Pilates Central exists. Plus it is great fun!!
