Acute or chronic disorders may get in your way of starting a fitness program. Clinical Pilates is designed for those who have completed their rehab program, or those in need of corrective alignment for proper muscle activation prior to transitioning to their next fitness level. When an injury occurs, or when pain persists, the sequence of muscle firing is altered and often causes shearing in the joints. Too often our body finds ways to avoid certain movements or compensates by overusing other structures. As a result, we teach our brain to learn a new movement pattern that may not be mechanically efficient and often causes dysfunction to other areas in our body and/or early fatigue. Clinical Pilates offers corrective alignment by way of using your own muscle contraction to realign the body and regain your movement with ease. Activating the proper muscles to maintain your alignment is just as important to prevent the body from returning to its dysfunction. A home exercise program is provided because it really takes repetition of proper movements to reteach the brain how to move our body properly until it becomes an automatic movement pattern once again.
