Pilar Pilates rehabilitation

Recently rediscovered by physiotherapists, chiropractors and orthopedists, the Pilates method can also be integrated into rehabilitative exercise and physiotherapy programs designed to speed the recovery of soft tissue injuries and other disorders. Pilates-based rehabilitation can benefit people with:

  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder impingement/tendonitis
  • Hip bursitis
  • Ankle injuries
  • Total knee/hip replacements
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scoliosis
  • Performance & sports injuries
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries
  • Muscle strains

Because Pilates exercises are controlled they are safe for those in rehabilitation after an accident. Many health professionals recommend Pilates to aid recovery and as a way of re-educating and re-aligning the body to prevent imbalances. Doctors have also found this method to be an excellent supplement to standard physiotherapy.
