WHAT IS PILATES?

Pilates focuses on quality of movement rather than quantity. An exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s, Pilates is a whole- body exercise program designed to improve core and extremity strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, breathing, circulation, posture and alignment.

    If you are not comfortable with some exercises, he will update them to your needs, I really like that. The physical therapy place is very clean and if you are lucky you will get to meet his adorable dog.

  • "Highly Recommend"
    In my opinion, what really sets Matthew apart is his ability to pay attention to the individual and understand each person's idiosyncratic needs. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    Time goes by so fast during every appointment! He also has his therapy pup in the office sometimes, and he's an absolute lovebug! Highly recommended!
    - Jessica Y.
  • "Very Honest"
    He was also the first one to say maybe it's time to decrease the sessions to once a week and then every other week once he felt that I was really on the mend. I cannot say anything other than anyone who is in pain and/or needs physical therapy should see D

HOW DOES PILATES WORK?

Improper alignment, muscle imbalances and incorrect movement patterns mean the muscles are working inefficiently leading to suboptimal performance. This also can contribute to injury or pain. Pilates’ exercises are performed in proper posture and alignment and exercises are chosen to balance the body and reduce asymmetries. Movements are performed with attention to proper muscle activation patterns. Sometimes this means we try to activate a muscle that is not doing its job and sometimes we try to get an overactive muscle to relax in order to improve efficiency and performance.

Pilates’ equipment is highly adaptable and excellent for both high-level athletes and clients with low levels of fitness and pain. The equipment can be set-up to challenge high-level athletes to improve performance or as a low-impact method of cross training. Conversely, the equipment can be set up to assist clients with low levels of fitness, pain or orthopedic concerns (i.e., lower back pain, knee pain, rotator cuff problems, etc.).

Each Pilates program is individually tailored to meet your athletic goals and/or modified for your orthopedic concerns. Pilates’ exercises should never be painful – if an exercise is painful, it will be modified to be pain free or discontinued.
