Pilates for Rehabilitation
Pilates rehabilitation is an alternative form of physical therapy that utilizes the principles and exercises of Pilates, a movement system created by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. It focuses on strength, flexibility, coordination, posture and balance for injury prevention and rehabilitation. The goal of Pilates rehabilitation is to restore musculoskeletal health, improve overall functional ability and help individuals overcome pain from injuries or chronic conditions while also increasing their fitness level.
Benefits of Pilates
There are many health benefits to incorporating Pilates into your rehabilitation, including increased strength and flexibility and strengthening the core muscles (the abdominals, back and buttocks). Pilates-based rehabilitation’s independent spring system allows specific resistance and promotes continuous stability coupled with core strength. It forces you to balance while exercising and engages your core! It aids significantly in healing from injury and maintaining a healthier body.
Improve Your Wellness With Pilates Class
Pilates classes in Studio City are ideal for those who wish to strengthen their core while recovering from an injury or accident. Conditioning of the core is part of our physical therapy service. If you want to recover faster, you should not focus on just being in shape. You must also try to develop body awareness so you can maintain a stronger and fitter body. Our individualized treatment plans are supervised by our medical doctors and supported by chiropractic care, physical therapy, and therapeutic massage where beneficial to your rehabilitation.
We offer different types of Pilates Studio City classes. Book an assessment with one of our Back To Wellness Pilates instructors to find out which class best suits you and your wellbeing needs.
Pilates for Beginners
If you are still new to this type of exercise, you should try the beginner’s class. This is also perfect for those who have not exercised in a while or who wish to strengthen their core at a gentler pace. When recovering from an accident or injury, basic Pilates is helpful as you try to isolate your muscle groups and be able to activate them correctly. In a beginner’s class, you will focus on understanding your core muscles – how they work and how to activate them properly to improve your overall physical strength.
Once you’ve completed the beginner’s Pilates class, you can move on to an intermediate Pilates class. This is advisable for patients whose recovery includes physical therapy. At the intermediate level, you should already understand how your core muscles work and expect it to become more intense. The pace is also faster. As you advance through this class you will experience new levels of flexibility and core strength, and your overall posture will improve.Call To Book Your Pilates Session Today!
