why ALWAYS pilates??...minimal neuro-muscular activity which, just like any other supportive devise, renders neural control electrically silent. 'Free' movement almost always is superior. A reformer is just '21st century cybex'...

Start with some Pilates movements may improve the condition. Ensure that the back is in required position for the start of the exercise.
