Physical therapists right across the globe are now recommending the use of Pilates as a form of rehabilitation.
It is time to choose Pilates classes in Johannesburg for a professional, positive experience. Pilates is especially beneficial for those individuals suffering from injuries; a brilliant way forward for injury rehabilitation in any form.
Pilates is one of the fastest-growing forms of exercise right across the globe, with millions having enjoyed the many fitness and health benefits of enhanced strength, stretch and suppleness.
Pilates is also fast gaining popularity in the world of rehabilitation from injury, where the main offender is usually muscle imbalance.
It is no secret that numerous injuries are the result of muscular imbalances in the human body due to a whole host of reasons such as:
We can experience muscle imbalances from the way we walk, bend or sit; even the way we work out, if these are done incorrectly.
The way we move tells a story all of its own – and because most of us move in ways that are incorrect and harmful to our bodies, these become areas where negative pressure is put on some muscles whilst others are weakened – the result being muscle imbalance.
Pilates is brilliant in the promotion of an even musculature throughout the human physique, which is done by strengthening the core.
Needless to say, the core is considered to be the “centre” of the human body and comprises deep abdominal muscles as well as the muscles that are closest to the spine.
Pilate’s focuses on spinal and pelvic alignment which is key to getting us to move the way we are meant to so that we don’t cause injury to the body.
It is up to you take responsibility for your own rehabilitation – in other words, rehabilitation is far more than diligently attending Pilate’s classes.
With Pilates, patients learn where and why their bodies are injured and to identify the best sequence of movement for their individual needs.
