Pilates has a huge scope of practice. It can be easy or challenging, with an extremely low risk of injury. More importantly - everyone can do it! It’s not just for sporty or athletic people, and the payoff is huge regardless of the person’s capabilities.
Every movement you perform in pilates must involve core activation, breathing focus and concentration, hence why it’s so helpful for rehabilitation, injury prevention and movement optimisation.
Without core control, the rest of the body is on shaky foundations and the risk of injury increases every time we move. Without core stability, all the injury-specific rehabilitation in the world will be redundant as soon as you challenge your body beyond what you can normally handle.
Pilates can combine injury-specific exercises that include core stabilizing challenges - a great two-for-one deal!
We see many patients who aren’t gym junkies or fitness fanatics who would benefit from an exercise-based rehabilitation program they could perform at home. Pilates offers simple exercises anyone can perform with minimal equipment.”
