Six years after seeing 3 different back specialists, injections, physiotherapists, osteopaths and acupuncture I found ‘Back4Good’ Pilates and Diane Parrilla.
The loss of discs L5 and L4 had left me with very little back and core muscle control and debilitating pain, which meant that any exercise left me feeling exhausted and ill. Finally a new Neurosurgeon at Hammersmith hospital gave me two choices back surgery to fuse my vertebra or I could try ‘Back4Good’ Pilates?
I had known Diane for several years and after speaking to her she set up a program for me, which I can say hand on heart has changed my life. My 1:1 classes at the beginning were re training my brain to allow small movement to strengthen my back and core muscles, I continued to work on this program at home each day and after five weeks I was able to join her weekly class. I haven’t looked back since.
Having started the programme in 2012, I find it difficult to remember the person I’d become during the six years of pain and debilitation and thanks to the continuous care an attention in Diane’s classes I will never be that person again.
I slipped a disc L4-5 just before my daughter turned one
I spent over nine months in acute pain. Having treatments that never got me much past miserable. Then I found Diane and Back4Good on the internet…
Diane is simply brilliant. She knows her subject. She knows bodies. She has the ability to see you out of alignment and correct you immediately. She paces and pushes you appropriately and effectively. She is a practitioner you can trust….and she is lovely.
You will learn about your body and it will give you some control back in your life.
