Pilates for Rehabilitation
PILATES FOR REHABILITATION
Pilates is an effective rehabilitation tool for re-education and restoration of strength, mobility and proper function to the body. In rehabilitative Pilates, the combination of pain alleviation through movement science and low-impact movement language promotes a safe and effective recovery. The use of Pilates equipment offers a versatile environment in which you can facilitate, challenge and improve your strength and range of motion, and enhance awareness of your own body’s movement behaviour. With it’s low impact approach, there is much less risk of re-damaging muscles and connective tissue.
Some of the conditions treated through Rehabilitative Pilates include:
- Back pain, neck pain, shoulder complex dysfunction, knee and foot problems
- Post-surgical conditions – for those recovering from knee, hip, back and other surgeries.
