  1. Regain strength,
  2. improve flexibility,
  3. and aid mobility.

Rehab Pilates provides the specific guidance and training to learn the necessary stretches and basic, gentle movements that will decrease post-surgery pain.

With Pilates, you’ll learn the correct alignment and muscle movement that helps to reduce both direct and referred pain, which is where different areas of the body attempt to compensate for surgical pain.

We find the most successful rehab Pilates programs result when a client has a thorough understanding of their condition, the surgical procedure, and how the anatomy may have been affected. Our rehab Pilates programs educate clients to better understand how particular situations and injuries are affecting the whole body.

Learning about why a particular rehab Pilates program is prescribed helps you become more confident in the movements while increasing patience as your body adapts to new workouts and recovery.
