Pilates aims to fix (al kind of things)

Anybody may need rehabilitation at some point in their live, following an injury, surgery, disease, or illness, or because their functioning has declined with age. Rehabilitation should be highly person-centered and focus on the goals and preferences of each individual. 

Pilates can be an amazing tool in rehabilitation, providing a whole-body approach with focus on enhancing mobility, strengthening, balance and coordination. By strengthening all parts of the body, Pilates promotes correct movement patterns and thus is effective in strengthening muscles weakened by injury, preventing reaggravation of previous injuries and reducing the risk of injury in general. All bodies are different, and Pilates offers a huge degree of flexibility and modification, all exercises can be regresses or progressed depending on each individual and any injury or needs, focusing on continuously improving movement and strength.

Improving proprioception (spatial awareness) is an important component in injury recovery, forming a link between the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Pain and prolonged habits can lead to compensatory movement pattern that can sometimes contribute to imbalance and dysfunction. And mobilizing early is important in decreasing the convalescent period, especially following a musculoskeletal injury. Pilates helps you to become responsible for your own rehabilitation, actively teaching you about your individual body and how it moves.

Pilates is a fantastic way to get your body back on track and a couple of 1:1 sessions tailored to your personal needs is the perfect starting point. I’m happy to show you, what Pilates can do for you.
