Pilates for Injuries
Feel Better - Live Better
Helping with Rehabilitation
While rehabilitating injuries or the aches and pains caused by aging, it is important to remain active to facilitate tissue regeneration and joint mobility. Sitting dormant makes it more difficult to retain your range of motion, to heal and rebuild muscles.
Pilates can help you get back to your daily activities more quickly by
- first strengthening the weaknesses in the areas of concern;
- then slowly working the sore or aching area itself, providing the movement necessary to get the blood to flow.
Since Pilates focuses on proper alignment and pays attention to range of motion, it works with the body, not
Combating Muscle Imbalances
Our daily activities and sports can lead to muscle imbalances and issues caused by overuse and under use.
In sports, these imbalances develop especially where one side of the body is dominant, as in golf or tennis. Or an imbalance can overload one part of the body, as in biking or running, where the lower body is being used more vigorously than the upper body.
In our daily life, too much sitting. By strengthening the core (your trunk), Pilates builds a foundation from the inside out. Pilates develops muscle groups that are not directly involved in your regular training or sport which helps to establish stability and muscle balance.
