Exercise & Pilates

Do you experience any of the following symptoms?

  • Low back, hip or buttock pain?

  • Back ache which prevents activity more than 3 times a year?

  • A frequent feeling of fatigue and weakness in the back and hips?•

  • Increased back soreness after activity or sports?

  • Increased back or leg pain after sitting for long periods of time?

  • Neck and shoulder pain after sitting or working at a computer?(Experience of severe pain, muscle spasm, restriction of basic movement, numbness, tingling, or symptoms into the legs, may necessitate an assessment by your primary care physician before initiating exercise program.)



Physical Therapy can help you:

  • Improve your abdominal strength and trunk stability.

  • Increase strength and support through the legs, hips and back.

  • Provide you education about proper body mechanics, posture and exercise technique.

  • Teach prevention techniques to avoid future injury or strain.

  • Learn Pilates, Feldenkrais based, resistive, and cardiovascular exercises.

  • We will even show you how to use games on your Wii or Kinect to advance your home program.

Core stabilization involves an exercise program with concentration on strengthening the abdominals, gluteals, and back. With a stronger 'core', your back is more effectively supported, leading to fewer episodes of back pain.

 

The program consists of a thorough evaluation, then one on one treatment with your therapist to develop an exercise plan to achieve your goals. Treatment can also consist of hands-on manual therapy for proper muscle control, maintenance of proper alignment, and avoidance of excessive strain.

 

Muscular re-education will be a part of your exercise program. You will learn how to functionally apply your strength and flexibility to every day life. Your therapist will guide you in new ways of safely moving your body.
