Why Pilates in Physiotherapy?
- Strengthening weak muscles, and stretch the tight ones, has always been an important concept in Pilates which helps in postural correction and relieves various aches and pains of the body, making it a very powerful therapeutic device in Physical Therapy. From physical therapy perspective Pilates exercises had been proved to be beneficial in many areas.
- Pilates emphasizes on proximal stability (pelvic stability, scapular stability) with distal mobility (movements of arms and legs) which helps in stabilizing the torso while performing a wide range of slow, specific and smooth movements. Thus forms a very beneficial part of post-mastectomy rehabilitation, post fracture rehabilitation and useful in prenatal and postnatal conditions.
- Doing Pilates doesn’t over train one group of muscles or under train another group; it evenly conditions and balances the body as a whole. Thus improves athletic & sports performance and helps physiotherapists to deal with sports injuries with greater ease.
