Rehab and Pilates promote even musculature, emphasizing spinal and pelvic alignment, increased flexibility and agility, strengthening the core muscles so we are able to move the way we are suppose to move to avoid injury. With Pilates exercises we are able to modify the rehab program but still be effective depending on how bad and painful the injury.

Pilates provides a healthy rehabilitative cycle by creating a positive movement experience without pain beginning with small movements, properly integrating muscles in the proper sequence creating correct movement patterns.

This enhances confidence of the patient, to move without pain, and to slowly progress by trying another movement.
