At Physio Logic, our NYS licensed Physical Therapists are trained in both traditional Physical Therapy exercises as well as Pilates-based exercises and often use Pilates exercises in their rehabilitation programs with patients. Each of our Doctors of Physical Therapy at Physio Logic has gone through the extensive BASI Pilates Teacher Training program, a comprehensive program offering the highest caliber of training available. This unique approach of combining traditional physical therapy techniques and modalities with Pilates has proven to be very successful in treating many neuro-musculoskeletal conditions.
The principles of Pilates include a deep mind-body connection with an emphasis on strength, endurance, and intensity of movement. Pilates-based physical therapy exercises incorporate the whole body, creating a balance in the use of large superficial muscles with the deep, small endurance muscles responsible for a strong core and proper posture. Exercises are taught in all positions (prone, supine, sitting, kneeling and standing) to mimic everyday activities and promote balance and coordination.
Treating the body as a whole is imperative when managing or preventing aches, pains, and degeneration. As a result, the Physical Therapists at Physio Logic treat not only the acute injury or area of pain, but through total body strengthening and core awareness, our physical therapists focus on improving the body for everyday activities and sports, and educate patients on how to maintain strength, improve overall health, and avoid future injury.
The versatility of Pilates equipment affords a Physical Therapist endless possibilities when it comes to creating individualized exercise plans for patients that will better help them achieve their goals.
What makes Pilates so appealing to Physical Therapists is that almost every exercise can be modified to fit the patient’s abilities and physical limitations. They can be made easier or more difficult with simple adjustments. Our Physical Therapists are expert at modifying and adapting exercises to the patient’s changing strength needs with the common goal of getting the patient back to a pain-free activity level, whether it is for daily function or competitive sports.
“Treatment always feels right here. I’m always raving about Physio Logic to my friends and family. I pay out of pocket with the knowledge that I could probably go somewhere else cheaper, but I know it’s well worth it. Everyone here is friendly, helpful, and so knowledgeable.”
“[The physical therapists] were able to explain each step of my care in a way that I could understand. They were very good at answering any questions I had.”
