I need some advice from either a Physio or someone who knows what they are talking about when it comes to both Pilates and back problems.
Im hoping theres someone here who can at least point me in the right direction.
Thanks peeps.

I realise he's out of your area.
But he's very switched on and a top bloke.

How about a physio whos had almost 8 years as a spinal specialist?
And she knows a thing or two about pilates also....
:P :D

however... as I mentioned this to her, she reminded me of another friend of ours who specialises in pilates and back problems. ;)

Shes in South africa for another week, then coming back and starting at some private clinic. PM me or I'll chat to ya tuesday if you want.

Think Yoshi is studying to be a chiropractor...along with a mate of mine...
depending on the issue Roosta, it might need chiro rather than physio
but Im no doctor..so consult one first ;)

Let me know if you need some contact details :)

Hey sportsmed at St John of God Hospital is really good, they offer pilates with a physio supervising you.. usually its no more than 3 people with 1 physio.. but depends what time u go in for a session. (u can book an appoitment whenever it suits u). Its awesome for back pain.. I been doing it for a while and have really noticed the difference. They really focus on whats best for you. (first appoitment is a 1 on 1 with the physio to work out what exercises will work for you) and if u have private health cover you can claim it as physio treatment. Not sure if the area suits you but the one at murdoch is (9366 1810) pretty good.

HA. Nah its not me Chookie, its Mah Carley, she done got her self a Scoliosis and its getting worse, her physio said that Pilates was the go. bUt her Phsyio wants to conduct each session herself! Several physio sessions a week will cost plenty of the dollars that we dont have!
Oh and Chookie best leave The karma Sutra position to the experts. #184 is an easy one you wanna check out the variation on that, its called the Splitting the Bamboo (http://users.forthnet.gr/ath/nektar/kma/contents44.htm)

I wish it was as simple as a couple doses of penicillian but it aint. The physio said take a heavy dose of pilates and give me all ya money and she&#39;ll be right....

ive got scoliosis (and kyfosis or however u spell it), it sux...
heres some advice that the physio may not give, make sure she got a great mattress...itll help BIG TIME.
also lifting weights and strengthening my back has helped along with stretching...
how severe is it???

Rooster

Not debilitating severe yet. Id say its about a 1-2inch curve to the left in the mid lumber (lower back region) but shes still only young and its getting worse apparently.

She should give Bowen Therapy a go

Bowtech Therapists (http://www.bowtech.com/public/practitioner/search.results.do)

The Bowtech therapists I think are now deductable through HBF and similar, they are very good with Scoliosis.

Shouldn&#39;t take too many sessions and as Booze says get a good mattress and do strengthening exercises.

Semi true dude. Lower back exercise and weights *CAN* help, but you have to be really really really careful with your posture and correct technique. Normal spines can cope with a bit of wrong technique here and there (although its never a good thing) but if you&#39;re doing squats with an arched back or something you can do some serious damage

ahhhhhhhhhh yes, but you should ALWAYS have perfect form :) if u cant keep your form, drop the weight.

That is so true....and not just new ones.

I used to always have a chuckle to myself when going to the gym, looking at these cretins throwing huge weights around using inertia and every single muscle in their body to move it, except the ones they are meant to be training.

They thought they looked impressive, seeing who could grunt the loudest and attract the most attention.....to me, they were screaming out LOOK AT ME, I&#39;M A TOSSER :lol:

not all large ppl that throw huge weights around are cretins...

some of us have excellent form and pride ourselves on implementing that in others as RULE NUMBER 1 OF LIFTING WEIGHTS

after years of lifting weights i have more knowledge of different exercises and techniques than MOST afi qualified ppl or the like

Anyhoo...i dont know much but i can lift fings wot are heavy

Some of us train with intensity, and sometimes that means being vocal. Like in any sport EVER where an effort is made, there&#39;s often a grunt - ANY SPORT. Wieghtlifting is nothing BUT effort, and when some of us on a final reps are in pain, the automatic responce is a grunt or yell... and we&#39;re doing it unintentionally, just because if YOU did it it&#39;d be to seek attention, doesn&#39;t mean everyone else thinks like you.

IT&#39;S A GYM, NOT A FUCKING LIBRARY.

Ronny Colman, the current Mr Olympia and arguably the biggest bodybuilder to date... has TERRIBLE form, I&#39;ve seen his DVD&#39;s and it makes me wince... but he&#39;s the best of the best, what he&#39;s doing works for him, what I do works for me, maybe you should pay more attention to what you&#39;re doing - without having to compare it to everyone else... because that kind of makes YOU the tosser.

Nope, just puttin you form nazi&#39;s in your place.

You guys spend so much time dissing others who train, that even with your correct form... you&#39;re not much(not that I&#39;ve met you, i mean more in general, the form nazis are never the big guys.)

I try and keep good form, but when fatigue sets in form fails... But I&#39;m still bigger and in better shape than most who&#39;ve come tried to offer advice and correct me. Not that that has happened in a year or so.

If you&#39;re going to try advise someone, at least make them want to take you&#39;re advice on board by representing something they&#39;d aspire too, in the gym it&#39;s pertty obvious who&#39;s getting results and who isnt.

CB Boy
11-10-2005, 05:09 PM
You seem to be taking this very personal.

I wasn&#39;t aiming anything at you or anyone else on this board. I wouldn&#39;t know you if I ran into you.

I was making a statement from my general observations from when I used to train.
Not everyone trains at a gym to get as big as they can, as you no doubt realise.

A lot of people would prefer the high rep, lower weight type stuff.

I have been there, I have competed (a long time ago), I have always used good form.....and I always got a chuckle out of the grunters.

Do you find it equally amusing when a tennis player serves?

Or is thier effort somehow more legitimate than someone in the gym?





I&#39;m not a grunter, and yes I know some do it more than they probably need to, but whatever helps them reach thier goals is a good thing, if I&#39;m layin under 160kilos I really don&#39;t care what comes out my mouth.

The whisperers are just a pet hate of mine, the guys you see quietly mocking another guy, to eachother, about his noise and/or form... It&#39;s a worse form of elitism than the guys who make the attention getting noises in the first place.

Mine too....they are usually the ones that go with 3 or 4 of their mates and sit around for 5 - 10 minutes between sets.

Looks like we finally agree on something :)

this seems to be a very direct comment without any ambiguety at all

" looking at these cretins throwing huge weights around "

such comments were not directed at anyone on the board...well with over a 1000 members did u honestly beleive you wouldnt offend anyone?

the fact that you apparently competed years ago means that you SHOULD have more of an understanding of just how much hard work it takes to get on stage, instead of making moronic comments that you yourself were probably the butt of when you were huge.

OBVIOUSLY you have never grunted when training heavy, or you have never trained heavy.


you should stick to not making such generalised comments, that you will find, will affect the more vocal members on the board.

Ok, I concede that I probably could have put it a bit more eloquently, however, I stand by what I have said.

I am not talking about the average grunt (whatever that is) that will slip out on the last couple of reps on your fourth set with max weight.

What i&#39;m talking about are the guys that are OBVIOUSLY doing it to get the attention of that 18 year old girlfriend of the skinny guy on the multi station bench.

You know the ones....they have one spotter on each end of the bench press and at least one of them is not doing his job cos he&#39;s too busy ogling that nubile young wench himself.
In the mean time, the bar is tilting on a 20 degree angle and a 25kg plate is just about to slide off onto his toes and give him a wake up call because it&#39;s not cool to use collars.

im sorry did someone say scoliosis or howeer you pronounce it ??


Not to make light of you predicament there but about 80 percent of the population have it .. the point im trying to make here is don&#39;t jump inot thinking that is the root of all evils there could be another reason for the pain/discomfort just have a quick thihnk about that before you go spending all that money on physio sessions which you may or may not need ..

im not an expert but the physio i saw when i had a bung back ( crushed verts and a dodgy nerve) got paid a salary and therefore didn&#39;t mind giving it as it was.

anyway hope your other half gets better
