Pilates as a means to recovery and prevention

Pilates is helpful in progressing patients from active treatment to independence from it. Rehabliltation after spinal, hip and knee surgery can be enhanced . It is also extremely useful for patients suffering recurrent back and neck problems in reducing the extent and rate of re-ocurrences.

Pilates is less aggressive than normal gym type exercises and well tolerated by individuals who are not particularly 'sporty'. As well as its role in improving muscle tone, it can help with relaxation and 'stress busting'.
