PILATES  REHABILITATION  SERVICES

Pilates services are primarily private, one-on-one hour long sessions for rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system after injury.

A Pilates session includes time spent on both the reformer apparatus and the cadillac apparatus, each of which has a unique set of exercises.

 

Healing time is shortened dramatically when time is spent on both reformer and cadillac.

 

The patient has the undivided attention of the Pilates instructor to address their condition.

What is a ‘Bandaid’ cure?

A ‘bandaid’ cure is a temporary solution for pain, which acts by deadening the nociceptors, specialized neurons which transmit a pain signal from a body part to the brain.  The complex nociceptor pathway, our body’s innate ability to sense pain, is a defense mechanism which prevents damage being done to the body.  By numbing the nociceptors, pain messages received by the brain are reduced, but only until the ‘bandaid’ wears off.  Examples of ‘bandaid’ cures are Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, other NSAIDs, and cortisone injections.

‘Fake pills’ reduced pain and disability in patients with low back pain, October 2016.

Conventional medical wisdom has long held that placebo effects depend on patients’ belief they are getting pharmacologically active medication. A paper published online in the journal Pain is the first to demonstrate that patients who knowingly took a placebo in conjunction with traditional treatment for lower back pain saw more improvement than those given traditional treatment alone.

Age-related decline in balance (Vertigo)
