Pilates for Knee Pain
At Physiolates we can help reduce, eliminate and even prevent knee pain through exercise based rehabilitation. Knee pain can be very debilitating and difficult to eliminate if not treated appropriately. Often, knee pain originates from sources other than the knee, for example, weak gluteals or tight musculature surrounding the knee. In Physiolates, our Pilates trained physiotherapists and sports therapists focus on strengthening those weaknesses and ironing out any tension which could be contributing to your pain.
How it works
Pilates is a series of exercises which works to strengthen the muscles that surround your knee and hip such as your gluteals and your core, which aid in the stability and appropriate movement patterns of your knee. Pilates exercises can also aid with the flexibility surrounding any tight musculature surrounding the knee, allowing your muscles to work at their optimal level. We provide both 1:1 private sessions as well as Pilates classes where our therapists provide you with individual attention to focus on technique.
