Pilates and physiotherapy: together strong

More and more physiotherapists refer their clients to Pilates Studio Pitonyasa. Sometimes it concerns Pilates in addition to physiotherapy. In other cases people come to my studio after the physiotherapist has completed his treatment. Pilates is then meant to retain core stability and mobility of joints. Naturally, I am delighted with this development. Together Pilates and physiotherapy stand strong to make your body even more stronger.

Maintenance remains necessary

By injuries, accidents or posture problems mobility reduces. As a consequence you suffer from complaints such as an aching back of painful joints. During the treatment the physiotherapist makes sure that your mobility improves again. To this end he prepares a rehabilitation plan tailored to your situation.

After your complaints have been cured, it is of course important that they do not return. To make sure for example that your body posture remains correct, it may be necessary to perform strengthening exercises during a prolonged period. For this purpose Pilates provides excellent workout possibilities. By doing Pilates exercises you work continuously on your core to enhance body stability. At the same time you improve mobility. In addition this helps also to prevent injuries.

Body and mind

During the rehabilitation the physiotherapist guides you while you perform the exercises. Pilates complements this by making you aware of your own body. That is because by doing Pilates you learn to perform exercises with precision by means of your concentration. This is called body and mind, and it is exactly this combination that helps you to control your own movements. Because in this way you learn to know your body, it supports your rehabilitation by physiotherapy.
