Not all Pilates classes - be they tower or mat - are good for your back. In fact, under-supervised Pilates often results in back pain. Look for a teacher with specialized therapeutic training. For an example of what you should be looking for, view Amanda Tennant’s video here, visit her Facebook page here, or schedule a session with her here.
Physicians Neck & Back Clinic is Brian Nelson, MD’s brainchild, with a base in Minneapolis and numerous satellite clinics. Dr. Nelson put down his scalpel when he realized he wasn’t getting good results from spine surgery and substituted a rigorous, multi-week, spine-focused exercise program.

ReQuest’s Mission: Reinvent physical therapy to not only treat the diagnosed orthopedic issue, but also provide a comprehensive plan for lifelong wellness.
Every business has a story about how it began, someone who had a vision based on a moment, an event, or an experience that would shape the foundation of the business. ReQuest is no different, inspired by a knee injury sustained in a sparring session that would change the practice of physical therapy in Gainesville.
In 1986, Gainesville Health & Fitness owner and ReQuest founder Joe Cirulli injured his knee during a sparring session that would lead to surgery and physical therapy. After weeks of lifting sandbags, he decided that he could do better on his own believing there was a more modern way to strengthen his muscles and a more inspiring environment in which to recover. His passion to make this kind of physical therapy a reality started ReQuest with just one therapist and a medical testing machine called the lumbar extension. The goal was to eliminate spine pain.

When trapped in chronic pain, it can seem like you’ll never feel better and be able to live the life you want—especially if you’ve tried other therapies and drug-based treatments that only worked temporarily or not at all.
To feel better, you need to focus on the source of your pain.

The Functional Movement Training Centre
The methodology of Movement Therapy evolved from purely clinical beginnings. Dr David Johnson’s unique awareness of movement proficiency and development of the biomechanics of NeuroHAB defined functional movement, together with his Neurosurgery and spinal surgery practice, allowed the puzzle pieces to be put together to create a clear understanding of why, on a global scale back pain rehabilitation is failing. Incidence, prevalence, and recurrence of back pain symptoms are escalating, being amongst the nations highest economic health burdens. The primary reason for failure to control this epidemic is the misguided approach of targeting back pain symptoms and not the root of the disease which is movement dysfunction. The vast majority of therapies don’t have a definition or a mechanism of correcting the disease of Movement Dysfunction. THIS SETS US APART!
