Pilates, named after its developer, Joseph Pilates, was originally created to rehabilitate wounded soldiers during World War 1. Soon after, it was adopted by the dance community to rehab dancers from various injuries. As Pilates became more mainstream in the fitness industry, it seemed to lose its place in the medical industry. However, today that has changed. Pilates is becoming more popular in physical therapy clinics and is the most common exercise method recommended by doctors to eliminate back pain.
Conditions that benefit from Pilates:
- low back pain
- hip & knee replacements
- chronic pain
- Parkenison's disease
- joint pain/instability
- herniated/bulging disc
