APPI Pilates suits all ages and fitness levels and is particularly beneficial for those with back pain , poor posture , sports injuries , arthritis and before and after pregnancy .
Pilates for back pain
The medical world has now realised the benefits of Pilates for injury and rehabilitation. 80% of adults will experience back pain at some stage of their life. When left unmanaged a high proportion of people will continue to experience further episodes of back pain in future years. One key to preventing recurrences is to rehabilitate and re – train the deep abdominal , pelvic and spinal stability muscles to dynamically support the spine throughout movement.
Prior to starting our classes an initial consultation with the Physiotherapist is required to determine which classes would best meet your needs. At the time of your assessment , our Physiotherapist discusses your health history and your overall aims and goals for undertaking Pilates.
A postural assessment is carried out and specific areas noted to target through your programme. The Physiotherapist will introduce you to the Pilates principles and key elements. Once you have gained the fundamental principles the Physiotherapist will teach you basic Pilates mat exercises to enable you to practice the exercises at home in between supervised Pilates sessions.
