How to improve core muscle strength with Pilates
If you have a patient you need to refer for an exercise program, you should consider Pilates. Pilates is fully supervised by a Physiotherapist within a physiotherapy practice, rather than a pilates instructor at a gym. Health Dynamix offers your patients a full assessment and tailored Pilates program using our fully equipped Pilates studio, with trapeze table, trapformer, reformers, balance boards, fit balls and mat work.
Pilates is a core stability training program and it specifically targets postural muscles in the upper back, along with the smaller and deeper back and stomach muscles. Once these muscles are recruited, they control the position of the spine during any dynamic movement of the body. In short – Pilates strengthens core muscles and allows posture to improve, relieves back pain problems, and gets you a patient into shape.
By practicing Pilates on regular basis, the patient can achieve a large number of health benefits, especially those that involve core muscle strengthening. These benefits include:
- Improvement of core strengths and stability
- Improved balance and posture
- Improved flexibility
- Prevention and treatment of back pain
program is very adaptive and it can provide gentle strength training as well as
a challenging workout for seasoned athletes.
The most important thing about practicing Pilates is to maintain the correct form in order to avoid injuries and get the most benefit.
