YOU CAN RECOVER QUICKLY AND NATURALLY FROM YOUR INJURY
Pilates is one of the fastest growing exercises in the world. And millions more have experienced the physical fitness benefits of added strength, length, and agility that it provides.
But few know that Pilates is rapidly rising in another area - rehabilitation from injury.
With Pilates, clients become responsible for their own rehabilitation. It is not just coming to a therapist, lying down and having them do all the work. Pilates helps a patient learn where their body is in space and identifies the best movement sequence. All these factors contribute to a positive movement experience, which greatly facilitates any recovery.
Most Pilates exercises are performed on a mat or piece of equipment called a Reformer (a sliding carriage inside a long frame connected to springs, ropes and pulleys). Another benefit of Pilates is that patients can combine the Reformer and mat together as a solid 1-2 approach. This eliminates incorrect movement patients developed which probably led to the injury in the first place. As they progress and are no longer experiencing pain, they can use the mat for home exercises to continue their rehab, strengthen those muscles and prevent further injury.
