Why Pilates after Injury?

After an injury, it's important to begin the road to recovery as soon as possible. And for many people, that means starting with some sort of physical therapy. However, traditional physical therapy exercises can be repetitive and often quite painful.

 

That's where Pilates comes in.

A common misconception about Pilates is that it is only for experienced athletes or people who are already in good shape. However, Pilates can actually be a great form of exercise for people who are dealing with injuries or chronic pain. The slow, controlled movements help to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility without putting too much strain on the body. In addition, clients tell us that the focus on breathing and concentration can help to take the mind off of pain and promote relaxation.

Here are some facts about rehabilitation exercise and pain

  • Resting the injured body part for a short time is important for tissue healing, however, it is important to keep the rest of the body moving with rehabilitation exercises for a full recovery

  • Too much rest slows recovery

  • Graduated exercises benefit injury to discs, ligaments and muscles around the joints

  • Graduated exercises help the injury/surgery recover faster

  • It is common to have some pain during exercise, this will reduce over time

  • It is important to move the painful region in a slow and controlled manner

  • It is also important to enjoy yourself, let your endorphins do their magic, you will notice that your pain will subside
