Therapeutic Pilates

Pilates is not just exercise, but rather, a blend of particular movements put together in a systematic way to enhance both, physical and mental conditioning. With Pilates you will improve your strength, flexibility, and coordination. As well as, reduce stress and improve mental focus.

How does Pilates apply to your Chiropractic care?

  • Anatomical Position and Joint Care

A correct anatomical position, which includes the interaction of the bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles, places the bones in an optimal position alleviating tension and strain on the joints. Two bones come together and are attached to each other by ligaments to form a joint. Tendons attach the muscles to the bones which allow movement of the joint. Thus, the correct anatomical position, or proper posture, will reduce stress and tension on the body and decrease pain.

When you come in for an adjustment, your Chiropractor manipulates the joint and creates relief. In order for your body to hold the adjustment there is a need to strengthen the muscles around the area manipulated. Pilates will help to strengthen and stretch these muscles and aide the body in maintaining a pain-free position.
