Pilates is a revolutionary approach to strengthening the body in a guided way that gradually increases in difficulty and intensity. The benefits of Pilates include increasing flexibility, strengthening the core musculature and all muscles of the body without putting stress on the joints, improving balance, stretching the spine, and correcting muscle imbalances. It truly is a great form of exercise and rehabilitation that will benefit any age.
Our Pilates instructors will patiently guide you through the fundamentals of core muscle strengthening, and how to improve body mechanics in your daily life in order to decrease or prevent the occurrence of low back pain, joint problems and many other physical dysfunctions.
Pilates Physical Therapy for Children
Age-related poor spinal alignment can lead to bad posture, which can be prevented by teaching children about correct movement patterns, especially for those who are developing scoliosis. Pilates for children can help them learn how to move gracefully and efficiently using their bodies without stressing the back and joints. Pilates also helps children realign and strengthen their muscles and joints.
Pilates Physical Therapy for Adults
Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. There is a balance which is key in treating pain and strengthening your body. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Our Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints.
Pilates directs attention to core support and full-body fitness, including the breath and the mind, which provides a level of integrative fitness and pain management. This is also why Pilates is an effective and popular tool in physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Pregnancy and Post-Partum Pilates Physical Therapy
Not only is Pilates Physical Therapy a safe exercise to do during pregnancy, it is also designed around eight core principles that benefit pregnant women in particular. During pregnancy, Pilates brings an awareness of your body and a focus that helps with labor and delivery. Pilates helps increase lung capacity and even creates more room for the baby within the body. Because of weight gain, pregnant women are more prone to falls and injuries as their centers of gravity shift–Pilates helps promote balance and spatial orientation. Once a woman has delivered, Pilates will help to safely and effectively tone and strengthen muscles, along with helping mom to lose the baby weight.
