Rehab Pilates utilizes a physical therapist’s in-depth knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy, injury patterns and understanding of motor control, combined with Pilates. Pilates is a method of conditioning exercises that combines stretching, strengthening and breathing with a focus on a stable but mobile spine. Pilates emphasizes body weight as resistance rather than weights, and focuses on building core muscles and postural awareness.
Rehab Pilates vs. Fitness Pilates
At Rebound, we offer Rehab Pilates as specialized form of physical therapy to help you heal from your injuries. In Rehab Pilates, our Stott Certified Rehab Pilates therapist performs an extensive physical evaluation to determine all contributing factors to a patient’s dysfunction and pain. Our therapist then teaches you the principles of Pilates and then develops an individualized program of Pilates based exercise tailor made to what you need in order to safely recover from your injury. You simply cannot get this level of injury expertise combined with Pilates based exercise within a fitness environment.
The ultimate goal of Rehab Pilates is to improve a patient’s postural and movement awareness to eliminate or manage their pain, improve functional tolerance and quality of life. Pilates-based therapy at Rebound also includes progression to community based Pilates and/or home program. Treatment within this program is covered by health insurances that also cover physical therapy.
