While most of us could certainly use more regular exercise in our lives, even those that do get to the gym or exercise on their own might find that they could use a new way to help them improve their flexibility, balance, and strength. Incorporating more areas of the body into the way your exercise can build strength for you in ways you may not have thought possible. This can be particularly important if you are just overcoming a recent injury. If you are looking for a new way to help yourself, you may want to give Pilates in Sherman Oaks a try at our facility here at the Back to Wellness Center.
Pilates as Rehabilitation
Pilates was founded as an exercise routine for rehabilitation when it first started. Joseph Pilates began the routine for himself back in the 1920s as a way to help recover from injuries he viewed soldiers had sustained during World War I. The exercises were designed to help strengthen core muscles that are necessary for good body function, and Pilates was adapted over time to help dancers and athletes build up strength and muscles through the use of resistance and movement. Over time, these exercises have been altered and adapted to fit more specific needs, but are still wonderful for those looking to heal safely and properly.
