Pilates is today one of the most popular forms of exercise across the world. People from all walks of life have embraced it with open arms. The routine brings a lot to the table in terms of strength, stamina, fat loss, calorie-burning, stress alleviation, and calmness. But there is one area of effectiveness of Pilates that does not get the limelight enough. It is the effectiveness of Pilates for people in Rehabilitation. Many Pilates studios are seeing more and more clients come in to help with rehabilitation in Dubai and other parts of the world. Pilates is also a recommended form of exercise by most doctors and physical therapists.
So, what makes Pilates so effective in treating injuries and restoring your health?
What we may not realize is that more than weakness, it is our posture that leads to a lot of muscle-related injuries. Improper posture exerts uneven pressure on our muscles, weakening them. That leaves you open to injury quite easily. Pilates holds posture and balance as one of the central principles in all its movement series. Pilates helps you strengthen your core through correct engagement and mindful movement. Such exercises even restructure the muscular organization and reduce your pain gradually.
If you’ve suffered from an injury, the first thing you do is go to a physical therapist who will help you rehabilitate your injury, feel stronger, and give you exercises specific to your injury to strengthen the injured area. This is a great way to START dealing with an injury. But what preventive measures do you take to ensure that the injury does not reoccur? In comes Pilates! Once your physical therapist and doctors have worked on the specific pain area, practicing Pilates will ensure that you are strengthening the entire body evenly so that the injured area does not take additional strain.
