Pilates: Is It an Alternative to Physical Therapy?

(A message from the tutor)

I would say, no, but it is a great part of rehabilitation and should be a skill that every physiotherapist should gain & apply.

So, why is Pilates an effective rehabilitation tool?

First, let me introduce myself, and how I started my journey as a Pilates Instructor I am Fatma Elbakry. I graduated as a Physiotherapist in 2008. Back in 2010 I had a severe LBP attack that with some Mechanical diagnosis & therapy and some mobilization strategies always get relieved but every time I went to the gym, I had a flare-up. Then, I decided to try other forms of exercises (yoga, spinning classes and others), till I joined a Mat Pilates class, and it was my first time ever in 2 months that I felt no pain during exercises, even had total relieve from my back pain after practicing Pilates for 2 weeks. That was the moment I decided to join Merrithew Canada courses to become a Stott Mat Pilates Instructor. After more than 10 years of experience working with a wide variety of patients in private practice as a manual and kinetic control therapist and Pilates instructor, I found the ultimate package of management, helping my patients move on day 1, as early mobility is important in decreasing the convalescent period, especially following a musculoskeletal injury. It is also a long-term effective and high standard rehabilitation strategy. Although originated by Joseph Pilates back in the late 19th century, Pilates gained gradual popularity as a mainstream rehabilitation tool to treat both acute and chronic injuries, providing a whole-body approach to patient care. Since the early 2000s, there has been a growing body of evidence on the relationship between Pilates intervention and patient recovery. Pilates or as used to be called Contrology uses a combination of approximately 50 simple, repetitive exercises to create muscular fusion and train the different stabilizer and mobilize group in different modes (eccentric, concentric & isometric) providing the therapist with a whole body balanced movement between stability (motor control) and mobility, forming a link between your musculoskeletal and nervous systems as mind-body exercise.

Some other unique features related to Pilates that will be introduced and practiced during the course:

 
  • Each exercise is initiated by stabilizing the core musculature, which includes the abdominal, gluteal, and scapular, and then proceeds through a controlled range of motion.

  • A Flexible Form of Rehab is used to either increase muscle strength and endurance, muscular and fascial flexibility and improve posture and balance.

  • It’s a whole-body exercise that promotes agility, and strength through using the body weight as the main resistance that is used throughout the series of Pilates mat exercises.

  • The additional psychological element of Pilates is evident in the additional focus on breathing and concentration during the execution of these exercises. "Part of its success is indeed based on the approach to the principles of Pilates” Joseph Pilates- THE 6 PILATES PRINCIPLES.
