RMT-Pilates is a powerful combination of manual therapy treatment followed by Rehabilitative Pilates, ensuring the effectiveness of the RMT treatment by improving movement patterns, creating long term effects to alleviate pain. For many, back pain can be caused by poor mechanics of the spine or by a weak back and abdominal muscles. For others, a job that requires heavy lifting or sitting all day can be a major influence. Medical conditions, such as arthritis and scoliosis, and trauma or accident induced injuries can limit our daily activities due to pain. Whatever the cause of your pain, a carefully designed RMT-Pilates program will ensure a speedier recovery, and move you towards a stronger and more efficient body.

Pilates Based Rehabilitation
In the initial stages of recovery, rehabilitative Pilates is used to strengthen deep muscles that stabilize joints while maintaining your pain free range of motion. As the pain subsides, exercises are used to increase joint mobility and tissue flexibility, muscle strength and is the most powerful tool in training core stability.
Corrective muscle retraining isn't just for injury rehabilitation. Correcting faulty muscle patterns will help athletes improve their sports performance, joggers to run faster and stronger, golfers to optimize their swing, gym-goers to increase their lifting potential and range, and those with busy work and home lives to move with less physical strain. Preventing injury is the best way to keep you from slowing down.
