Your pain can improve. You can live better.
Do you suffer from neck or back pain? Ashley was a spine specialized Physician Assistant and counseled patients daily about their back conditions. If there was one activity she prescribed, it was DO PILATES! Ashley has private sessions for spine clients and each instructor has received additional mentoring from Ashley specific to spine care.
Pilates is a fabulous whole body fitness that is low-stress for your spinal discs and trains you to move properly. You focus on engaging your “powerhouse” or core muscles – not the sexy 6 pack abs that crunches produce – but the deep, structurally protective abdominal, back and pelvic floor muscles. And guess what? When your true core is engaged, you offload stress on your spinal discs and help your back! This is protective and can also rehab and minimize pain.
We specialize in our Healthy Bones Program for those with osteopenia or osteoporosis. Modified Pilates (flexion-free!) is a wonderful way to safely improve your bone strength with appropriate weight bearing training. Don’t risk a spinal fracture – strengthen smart with us! We also have expert in-house nutritional counseling and testing to help monitor the quality of your bones and provide holistic bone health.
