Pilates is a superior tool for encouraging the body to use its innate ability to heal itself through movement. This is why it is used in so many rehabilitation hospitals and physical therapy clinics across the country. Its emphasis on spinal and joint stabilization, optimal biomechanics and recruitment of specific muscles leads to ease of movement and a reduction in pain.
A highly specialized Pilates program is designed for the appropriate chronic condition or ailment in a supportive and safe environment. Pilates helps all back, neck and shoulder issues, arthritis, osteoporosis and can help rehab from cancer treatment.
