Transform Your Life with
Pilates for Chronic Pain

at Flow Plus Pilates Studio in Highland Park, IL

Chronic pain refers to persistent or recurring pain that lasts for an extended period, typically lasting for three months or more. Unlike acute pain that arises from an injury or illness and subsides as the body heals, chronic pain persists over time and often becomes a condition of its own.

Chronic pain can manifest in various forms, such as aching, burning, throbbing, or shooting sensations. It can range from mild to severe and may be localized in specific areas or spread throughout the body. This condition can impact daily activities, disrupt sleep, and negatively affect mental and emotional well-being.
