Pilates And Physical Therapy: A Two-Part Approach

Posted on Posted in Fitness, Let's Get Technical

When practiced together, Pilates and physical therapy can truly be the cornerstone of an overall recovery and health plan.

When both practitioners are working in collaboration they can more effectively re-educate patients away from movement compensations that may cause a return of pain and dysfunction.
