How can Pilates-based physical therapy help my student athlete?
Whether a young person is participating in high-level competition or recreational play, injuries in sports happen. With more intensive sports programs and year-round competition becoming the norm, student athletes are more vulnerable to injuries. That’s why it’s important to carefully select a rehabilitation program for growing bodies. Treatment for children is different from adults, as the musculoskeletal system is still growing. Pilates Fitness and Physical Therapy treats young athletes using a multifaceted approach, including: A comprehensive injury evaluation; a custom rehabilitation program using Pilates-based methodology; addressing muscle imbalances; and working on strength, mobility, flexibility, balance and proprioception, as needed, for the athlete’s chosen sport.
The student will be ready to safely return to his or her sport stronger, more body-aware, and with information to prevent future injuries.
