What is Pilates?

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that may help build flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back..

How can we help?

The Pilates Method is a conditioning system that strengthens and stretches the body uniformly, correcting alignment and posture, while incorporating breathing patterns that stimulate the mind and relax the body. The Method is a series of exercises that can be done on a variety of special equipment or on the floor.  South Bay Physicians, incorporate the Pilates technique into their rehabilitation programs.

The important principles of Pilates are consistent with an exercise program that promotes back health. A top focus of Pilates is neutral spine alignment. “Neutral spine alignment” is the medical term for what is commonly called “good posture” and refers to the natural curvatures that a healthy spine should have. Many people have lost the ability to achieve neutral spine alignment after years of improper posture. Proper posture, combined with deep back and abdominal muscle strengthening exercises, often leads to reduced back pain and improved quality of life for many people.

Our Pilates program also teaches awareness of movement habits that may stress the spine, and helps the patient change these habits to those that preserve neutral alignment. Awareness of excessive tension and the use of proper focus helps the patient use the body efficiently and reduce pain in the long term.
