PILATES

I was also diagnosed with thinning disk pain, both in the lumbar and the cervical spine. I control this by doing Pilates. As a certified Pilates instructor I thankfully getting a lot of practice on a daily basis, either teaching, demonstrating, or just working on my own. I also use an ice pack (a packet of frozen peas work best) to treat any possible swelling around the problem area.

I suggest you find a good CERTIFIED Pilates instructor. Ask all the right questions; which certification does she/he have; was it a solid training or a weekend, or merely watching a DVD.  How much experience does she/he have. Then do your own research on whatever you are told.

It's worthwhile paying for one-on-one training rather than putting her into a group class. It would be impossible for the instructor to give the necessary attention to someone like your daughter in a group setup.

I don't believe there's a permanent cure or fix but with Pilates I control my pain to such an extent that it doesn't affect my lifestyle.

Good luck.
