Common Orthopaedic Conditions

Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Rotator cuff conditions, Frozen shoulder, Lower back pain, Non-specific lower back pain, Sciatica, Hip and knee Arthroplasty...the list is long already.

Unfortunately, many people suffer from Orthopaedic conditions. I am not a Doctor or a Physiotherapist, I am a Pilates Instructor which means I cant diagnose or give you treatment but I can help you hopefully through a programme of prevention from other injury and rehabilitation of these orthopaedic problems.

Pilates uses many of the same principles used to help athletes recouperate. Pilates focuses on control of movement, so as to prevent further injury to the body. Pilates is low-impact and does not induce inflammation and overuse syndromes. Pilates will focus on core strengthening, balance and flexibility. It has been developed from a philosophical approach to exercise that focuses on the six principles :

* Centering
* Concentration
* Control
* Precision
* Breathing
* Flow

I highly recommend at least 5 one-to-one sessions before you join a group class so you can get used to the principles of Pilates and be able to progress with a strong base.
