One-On-One Pilates based Physical Therapy

Pilates is based on principles of concentration, core control, precision, breath, and movement flow. Pilates improves strength, flexibility, balance, and muscle control. Equipment varies from basic mat work to specialized spring tension equipment such as the reformer or tower.

At Symmetry Physical Therapy, our therapists incorporate Pilates into the Physical Therapy treatment plan for an additional layer of exercise variation.

Tower Pilates

Pilates exercises on the tower are a great way to challenge the musculoskeletal and nervous system while performing dynamic movements that require strength and coordination. There are many attachments with different spring tensions that allow the exercises to range from gentle mobility work to intense full body strengthening.

Reformer Pilates

The most common form of Pilates is on the reformer. The reformer has a spring-loaded carriage that allows the patient to perform a multitude of full body exercises. We use the spring tension to provide resistance or assistance to the movement. There are many modifications to the reformer the therapist can make to adjust the intensity of the exercises. The addition of the jump board is a great way to initiate low load plyometric exercises for safe return to sport.

Mat Pilates

Mat Pilates can be as easy or as challenging as desired. There are many “Pre-Pilates” exercises that can be taught on the mat to build a foundation for higher level integrated movements. We use mat-based Pilates to prescribe exercises that can be performed at home without any equipment.
