Pilates Physical Therapy
Pilates Physical Therapy incorporates pilates-based exercises into the patient’s care plan. At One on One Physical Therapy this happens on day one.
Programs are designed based on individual needs and home exercise programs enhance the exercises that are performed in physical therapy sessions. Patients are then transitioned to Pilates mat classes, private training or independent exercise programs.
The Pilates Method
The Pilates method incorporates equipment and mat work to provide a means to strengthen the entire body as a unit. Pilates principles focus on core control, spinal mobility, alignment, and breathing.
The Pilates apparatus uses springs to provide assistance or resistance allowing the client to move through ranges of motion with greater ease and control. These techniques ultimately create successful movement patterns which builds confidence and carry over to functional tasks.
Once we transition patients to a Pilates program they progress from a rehab-based program to a fitness-based program. We then fully incorporate Pilates Physical Therapy into his or her regular exercise routine as pain levels and functional mobility allow.
