Pilates Physical Therapy
What is Pilates Physical Therapy?
Not working out because of your injury? Try pilates with a licensed physical therapist.
Pilates is a century-old exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates. This practice is aimed at improving overall fitness and encouraging wellness. Physical therapist's are extensively educated on the body's muscle system, it's movement, and treatment of injury. Agile has physical therapists that have additional pilates certifications hence, pilates physical therapy. This duo of training is a perfect pairing because your physical therapist can appropriately account for any injuries or pain during the Pilates session. Furthermore, they have the unique training to make modifications during the pilates sessions to avoid worsening of your symptoms.
Benefits of pilates:
- Enhanced mind-body connection
- Better movement control
- Stronger core muscle
- Improved posture
- Greater overall muscle strength
- Improved balance
What should I expect in a pilates session with a physical therapist?
A pilates physical therapy session is similar to a regular pilates session except your physical therapist will firstly, ask you about your medical history or current injuries. Secondly, they will use their education to modify pilates moves accordingly to mitigate your pain. Lastly, because of their extensive schooling, they will be able to cue your movement and muscle engagement in specific detail. In addition, they know how hard to push and will respect your boundaries because they treat injured patients everyday. At Agile, we focus on tailoring Pilates to the individual to ensure a safe and effective workout for all.
