Positive Pilates

Have you thought about taking on a new exercise, something low impact and suitable for all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities?  It may well be worth considering Pilates. 

Pilates was created in the early part of the 20th Century by German Joseph Pilates. This form of exercise is good for mind AND body. It links movement together with the breath and helps you to concentrate on your body, making the exercise mindful too. 

  • Strengthens Core Muscles: Pilates focuses on strengthening the core muscles, which are pivotal for maintaining proper posture and alignment. A stronger core supports the spine, which means less injuries and less trips to see your chiropractor. 
  • Improves Flexibility: Pilates exercises increase flexibility and range of motion, which can help prevent the stiffness and tension that often lead to spinal misalignments. 
  • Enhances Body Awareness: Pilates teaches body awareness and control, encouraging individuals to be more conscious of their posture and movements throughout the day. This increased awareness can help us understanding when our body is trying to tell us that something is wrong. 
  • Promotes Recovery: For individuals recovering from back injuries or undergoing chiropractic treatment, Pilates can be a gentle way to strengthen the body without putting too much strain on it. It’s often used as part of a rehabilitation program to support the healing process.
  • Prevents Injuries: By strengthening the body, improving flexibility, and promoting better posture, Pilates can help reduce the risk of injuries that might require chiropractic care. It’s a proactive approach to maintaining spinal health.

Synergistic Approach to Wellness: Both Pilates and chiropractic care focus on the body’s natural ability to heal and maintain itself. Combining these practices can lead to a more integrated approach to health, addressing not just the symptoms but the overall well-being of an individual.

Integrating Pilates with chiropractic care can create a comprehensive wellness plan that addresses musculoskeletal health from multiple angles. Patients who combine these modalities often report improvements in pain, function, and overall quality of life.

You don’t need any expensive equipment, just a comfy mat, although some classes use therabands, balls, Pilates rings, foam rollers as well as reformer Pilates where items are usually supplied.  Not forgetting wall Pilates! 

Pilates is positive for everyone. If you are worried about getting started, ask your chiropractor for advice or book a rehab session with Cydney to make sure your body is ready.
