Physical therapist's message for back pain relief

For those of you that are new to Pilates, it is a form of low impact exercise that focuses on the alignment of the body while building strength and flexibility.  We incorporate both arm and leg movements along with core and postural stability to improve how our body moves not only while we are practicing, but throughout our daily lives and activities as well.  

The great thing about Pilates is that it can be tailored for your individual needs.  Whether you are new to exercise looking for a place to start or you're an avid fitness junkie ready for a challenge, our private sessions are a great way to keep your body strong and healthy! 

As a Physical Therapist, I specialize in treating people ages 40-60, who are active and want to STAY active and healthy for many years to come. My Pilates training has been under the Polestar Pilates certification, a very rigorous process that is specially designed for rehab professionals such as physical therapists. This training has helped me become a better clinician and will allow me to continue to offer exceptional wellness options for my patients and community. 

 

I am excited to not only be incorporating these techniques into my treatments with my patients, but also to be offering private Pilates sessions as well for those wanting to continue to work on their strength, flexibility and overall health!
