Health Tip: Alleviate Back Pain and Improve Posture from The Pilates Advantage [VIDEO]

GOOD Morning Wilton has teamed up with The Pilates Advantage on a new monthly series of video health tips. Each month Mary Beth Young, the owner of Wilton-based The Pilates Advantage, will demonstrate easy exercises, movements or adjustments you can make to help integrate healthier body alignment and movement into your life.

This month, Young’s video focuses on posture. Many people are not aware of the way they hold themselves and how they stand. For anyone who stands a lot and uses bad posture, this will impact the way they feel and can cause pain.

In the attached video Young shows common posture positions and habits that cause pain and how to correct alignment and posture to stand more comfortably. Hopefully this video will illustrate being aware of bad habits while standing, to correct posture misalignment.

The Pilates Advantage is located at 414 Olmstead Hill Rd., at Danbury Rd./Rte. 7. To learn more about how to correct posture and alleviate pain, contact The Pilates Advantage via email.
