Intérêt de la méthode Pilates dans la prise en charge des cervicalgies chroniques

Abstract : Introduction: Neck pain is a public health problem including economic, social and professional issues. It is a musculoskeletal disorder. Without a single etiology, it originates in one of the building blocks of the neck and its diagnosis is mainly based on the manifestation of pain. The Pilates method has become a common practice in the West and its positive effects on health are numerous. Objective: The aim of this review is to determine the effectiveness of the Pilates method in reducing pain in patients with chronic neck pain. Search method: A systematic research was performed on the PEDro, PubMed, Cochrane, Science Direct and Kinedoc sites between October and December 2020. Clinical tests were included according to specific criteria. Results and analysis: After evaluating the ethodological quality of the studies selected, it appears that the literature concludes that the Pilates method is effective in medium term in reducing pain in chronic non specific neck pain patients. Discussion: Larger studies are necessary to confirm the results, especially in the long term. The study of other exercises would allow us to see which component of Pilates affects the level of pain and to consider the possibility that other practices show similar effectiveness.
