Pilates on the machines is an integral part of any post-operative or post-injury rehabilitation process (after PT) which lasts until the body regains its every-day functionality. Rehabilitation on the machines helps create new neuromuscular motor patterns and builds overall strength with the ultimate goal of creating a body without limitations.
The post-rehabilitation process restores the normal, healthy body functions allowing the individual to go back to their previous lifestyle and activities (after PT). Every person has different characteristics, habits, and patterns, which is why every rehabilitation programme is individualised and unique. Neuromuscular injuries or operations followed by physiotherapy should be coupled with post-rehabilitation. This reduces the risk of new injuries which can have lasting consequences. Wrong motor patterns can hinder the functioning of healthy body parts. The post-rehabilitation process works on prevention of negative biomechanical patterns that lead to injuries, by locating the dysfunctional parts. This helps reduce pain and increase the mobility of joints in their neutral range of motion, develop segmental stabilisation, strengthen the musculoskeletal system, improve posture, proprioception, increase body awareness and control, all according to the clients' needs. Physiotherapy often leaves the patient without any further guidance after a few short sessions which often impedes the rehabilitation process. It is necessary to continue with the process of recovery (after PT), otherwise, the body will remain dysfunctional and the problem may even lead to surgery. The absence of rehabilitation process after surgical procedures can result in recurring injuries. Our licensed instructors can create programmes tailored to your needs. The first priority immediately after any injury is mobilisation and strengthening on a local and global level, improving joint stabilisation and regaining joint functionality. As specialists in the field of post-rehabilitation, we also seek the quality advice of different medical experts to broaden our knowledge and enrich our practice.
Who is it for?
If you visit us post-surgery or post-injury (after PT), please bring a copy of the results of any recent medical investigation. If necessary, we will contact your physiotherapist, doctor or orthopedist. The first session begins with a postural assessment which reveals dysfunctional body parts or problems in relation to other body patterns. The five basic principles are integrated into every post-rehabilitation session on the machines. We equip you with the knowledge you will be able to use independently in all areas of life. The rehabilitation process may involve manual muscle and fascial release. The body and mind connection is essential in achieving good results. New movement patterns, proprioceptive feedback and body awareness bring a visible outcome.
Our studio utilizes all four Pilates machines, knowledge from different methods, manual therapy and props in the post-rehabilitation sessions. We do not offer group or semi-private rehabilitation sessions.
