The Core – Strengthening Muscles with Pilates for Rehabilition :
Our Core Muscles are deep abdominal muscles and muscles closest to the spine. Pilates concentrates on exercising ‘The Core’ and aligning the pelvis and spine, so our bodies move and perform the way we are supposed to.Every day activities can cause our muscles to be out of balance ,activities such as ,the way we sit,the way we lie down , our walking posture. Any of these can cause our bodies to use our muscles incorrectly either weakening or putting to much pressure on them.This is what causes an imbalance.
Flexibility & Agility through Pilates :
Pilates for rehabilitation ( and exercise) will not only strengthen and balance the Core muscles,but create more flexibility in our bodies than many other forms of exercise therapy . Pilates is not a ‘One size fits all ‘ exercise plan ,it works because it can be modified from very basic, for serious injuries or beginners, to advanced depending on the individual and be very effective.
Creating Movement without Pain through Pilates :
As you start to move without pain, the more confident you become. The more confidence you gain the more likely you are to go on to new exercises ,this is an effective rehabilitation process to continue to gain more strength & movement .Pilates creates a positive exercise therapy experience. At Holistic Physio Fitness we have a thoroughly equipped Pilates Room including a Reformer , an amazingly elegant machine that provides finely tuned resistance that allows rehabilitation to be precise to develop good alignment ,core strength & flexibility.
Pilates Rehabiliattion Vs Conventional Exercise :
For the best results in any rehabilitation therapy it is recommended that a qualified trainer is used. Not all Pilates instructors are qualified for Physical Therapy as well as exercise training in Pilates ,so always ask your trainer if they have rehabilitation therapy experience and qualifications.
