Are You Physiotherapist Ready to Improve Client Outcomes? This is Why Pilates Can Help

Physiotherapy allows recovery from injury, illness, and disability, helping to restore movement and function as well as reduce the risk of further issues.

Physiotherapy is a holistic approach to dealing with movement and function across the body, from muscles, bones and joints, brain and nervous system, heart and circulation and breathing and lungs.

As a physiotherapist, you will already be considering the whole body in your approach to dealing with specific injury – holistic healing through advice, education, movement, and manual therapy.

Many physiotherapists are including Pilates in their practice, using this technique to help rehabilitate those that have limited mobility and flexibility – and here at Breathe Education we have a range of Pilates courses suitable for physiotherapists so that you can offer your clients a great way to improve their movement that fits into your personal approach.

Choosing Pilates as a way to help your clients improves not only their outcomes, but also their enjoyment of the process – if you have taken Pilates classes, you will understand the joy of movement that comes from your instructor.

Why Complete a Physiotherapy Pilates Courses?

If you are looking to offer physiotherapy Pilates classes, you need to understand what Pilates really is. As part of your Pilates instructor training, you will receive in-depth tuition regarding this, but here is a quick outline of the history and important points:

Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates in Monchengladbach, Germany. The son of a gymnast and a naturopath, Pilates believed that mental and physical health were interrelated, and developed a system of exercises designed to strengthen the mind and the body. The system that Pilates devised was inspired by his time at the Knockaloe Internment Camp on the Isle of Man and has clear connection to the physical exercise culture of the late nineteenth century, as well as the ‘medical gymnastics’ that Pehr Henrik Ling created.

In addition to these movements, Pilates included apparatus that was designed to aid and accelerate stretching, strengthening, body alignment and increased core strength. These included the Reformer pilates course as well as other apparatus like the Cadillac, the Ladder Barrel, and the Pedi-Pole, among others.

Of course, there is much more to effective Pilates instruction, including an understanding of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics – which makes choosing Pilates courses for Physiotherapists a great fit as you already have the much of the physical knowledge you need.
