How Clinical Pilates Helps with Injuries
Clinical Pilates mat work is a therapy that can be extremely useful in helping people that are suffering from injuries, especially soft tissue injuries. It can be used for things such as back and neck problems, ankle injuries, sports injuries, repetitive stress injuries, muscle strains, and so on. Clinical Pilates mat work is safe to use as a form of rehabilitation as it uses very controlled exercises. The equipment used also helps the body to regain its functional movement after it’s been injured. Clinical Pilates mat work is excellent for increasing a patient’s strength and flexibility, which is important as these are often lost following an injury of some sort.
It can also improve the patient’s posture and muscle symmetry. Clinical Pilates mat work is also surprisingly gentle as it has no impact on the joints, which is important when you are trying to recover from an injury. Clinical Pilates mat work can actually make life after the injury easier, as you instinctively try to protect an injured area, which can lead to muscles degrading and actually cause more pain. Clinical Pilates mat work increases the flow of blood to the area, and as with other forms of exercise, it can release endorphins which are the body’s natural painkillers.
Clinical Pilates mat work is vital for Injury Prevention
As well as helping to rehabilitate injuries, Clinical Pilates mat work is also excellent for helping to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place. This is because it teaches the person how to hold themselves correctly so that they do not injure themselves due to poor posture, poor moving techniques, or poor lifting techniques. Strengthening the core muscles also helps to prevent injury as the core muscles are the main support for the back and other structures in the body. Improving the person’s flexibility is also important as it creates more supple muscles that are capable of expanding and contracting further.
