Pilates for rehab goals

‘If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.’ Joseph H Pilates

In recent years health professionals have become more aware of the potential benefits of Pilates for their patients. In the correct hands Pilates is a powerful tool and can be used as part of a programme to retrain movement and help restore fitness and well-being.

If you are recovery from an injury or illness then 1-2-1 Pilates sessions may be appropriate for you as part of your rehab. You would need to work individually in 1-2-1 sessions initially to enable you to work safely and to achieve the specific goals that you may have. One of your goals may be eventually coming to classes.Reasons why students may want to use Pilates as part of their rehab:

  • Back and neck problems
  • Long term management of back and neck problems

  • Recovering from an injury or a musculoskeletal problem

  • Postural problems

  • Women’s health problems

  • General strength and conditioning training after recovering from illness

Clients are able to self-refer. If you would like to discuss your individual needs please use the Contact information page.

Referrals are also accepted from health professionals.

“I have been having Pilates with Jo for over a year. I have nothing but praise for her. She picked up I needed a hip replacement, and gently worked with my body till my operation.

The orthopaedic surgeon and physiotherapists all agreed that Pilates had helped my body with my walking and recovery. Am looking forward to returning to Jo. Thanks Jo.”
