What Is Pilates

Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates. Pilates is an art of controlled movements, which should look and feel like a workout when properly practiced. If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. Pilates puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, low back, and hips, is often called the “powerhouse” and is thought to be the key to a person’s stability. Pilates allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced or to any other level, and also in terms of the instructor and practitioner’s specific goals and/or limitations. Intensity can be increased over time as the body adapts itself to the exercises.

Pilates is wonderful and versatile way to treat Physical Therapy patients. Pilates echoes much of the same concepts that form the basis of most orthopedic rehabilitation and therapy. Pilates is being used to successfully treat many common conditions. Pilates is useful for back, knee and hip injuries, sports rehabilitation and much more.
