At Weybridge and Walton Physiotherapy two of our chartered physios, Jeremy Davis and Katie Wratten, are also fully qualified Pilates teachers. We are also fortunate to have a close working relationship with Pilates Works Studio, so when your rehab is over you can carry on with Pilates, work on your muscles and spine to keep them healthy for longer.
We use Pilates in injury rehabilitation to give you efficient movement with good stability. We believe Pilates is the best exercise for getting bodies moving properly, and because this is the goal we are all working towards, a lot of our rehabilitation strategies are based on Pilates.
All their Pilates teachers are full time and fully qualified, so you get the best Pilates experience in both one-on-one sessions and the classes.
In simple terms a muscle imbalance in when muscles (or groups of muscles) attached to either side of a joint (that usually work against one another to control the normal position and movement of the joint) do not have equal strength, length and/or activity. This results in the part of the body effected being pulled out of its normal position.
This is why, in order to be truly effective, the Physio has to have a good understanding of the inter-relation of these systems and be able to treat accordingly. This is also why any approach that just focuses only on treating the symptoms is unlikely to be effective in the medium to long term.
Typically, treatment involves direct mobilisation of the joints involved, most often the top 3 vertebra of the neck. This is combined with Myofascial (muscles and soft tissue) mobilisation and specific muscle strengthening and specific postural alignment retraining.
