STRENGTH, CONDITIONING & PILATES

Pilates with Theorem Health and Wellness 

 

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a low impact exercise comprising controlled movements that enhance your balance, core strength, mobility, flexibility, and even mood. It focuses on the smaller and deeper muscles that support your structure and enhance your overall health.

It was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. Pilates called his method "Contrology". It is practiced worldwide, especially in Western countries such as Australia, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. As of 2005, there were 11 million people practicing the discipline regularly.

One of the most famous of Joseph Pilates' quotes is this: "In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body".

Is Pilates an effective rehabilitation tool?

≈, particularly in reducing pain and disability.

Pilates-Based Physical Therapy is Holistic

This type of exercise is a philosophy. Pilates for injury rehabilitation looks at the body addressed posture, breathing and then gave the body part a workout, in addition to the rest of the body getting a workout just from positioning, awareness, and activation.
