    Pilates is a great way to improve core strength. If the disc injury is new, the exercises performed in the supine (lying on back) position are the best ones to start with. Next, the exercises in the prone (lying on the stomach) are also very good for new back injuries. Low resistance and low lever arm forces are also good starting points in either prone or supine.
