Compliment and Maintain Your Physical Therapy Progress
If you’ve ever found yourself at the doctor’s office after surgery or following a particularly nasty injury, your physician may recommend that you do some physical therapy. Therapy is a great first step to take in the healing process, and can get you on the path to feeling well again. Combine it with rehab-focused Pilates, and you can speed your recovery and build up even more strength to help you avoid re-injury. (Be sure to clear Pilates for rehabilitation with your therapist before beginning a program.)
If you’re just getting back into exercising, our staff can help you start a personalized Pilates program where you can gradually and safely build your workout again. If you’re interested in rehab-focused Pilates, our team will work with you to create a rehabilitation plan that’s specific to your needs and designed to help you reach peak performance quickly. Continuing your recovery efforts after physical therapy is critical, and we view our Pilates for rehabilitation program as the perfect compliment to your prescribed therapy. Come see for yourself how Pilates can get you back on your feet quickly and effectively.
How Can Pilates Help You?
Pilates is an all-encompassing physical workout that strengthens some of the most important – but sometimes forgotten – muscle groups in your body. There are numerous ways you can use Pilates for rehabilitation, including:
- Building Deep Abdominals and Back Strength: Being able to connect to your deep lower abdominals is crucial in recovering from many injuries – and preventing new ones. Once your abdominals are strengthened, you’ll begin to build back strength and improve your overall posture. Having a strong posture will result in better alignment of your entire body, which takes pressure off of all your joints and allows your whole system to function as it’s truly meant to.
- Increasing Body Awareness: A contributing factor to many common injuries is that we lose our sense of bodily awareness. For rehabilitation to be effective, it’s important that you understand how your body moves and how you can flow naturally to avoid injuries and missteps.
- Practical, Functional Fitness: One of the many benefits of Pilates is that it incorporates movements you often make in your everyday life. Practicing these movements, especially those that rely on strained and overused body parts, will help you avoid injuries from miscellaneous daily tasks and keep you on your feet far more effectively.
