Who Can Benefit? These sessions are for those currently undergoing or immediately following treatment for a health condition or injury as prescribed by a physician, physical therapist, chiropractor or other medical professional. You will meet with a post rehabilitation professional for an initial assessment and will schedule additional private sessions thereafter that are typically thirty minutes long.
What to expect Your first session will be a review of your health history, as well as consist of a variety of assessments and/or screens that address neuromuscular imbalances, alignment, and gait. After that, a protocol based approach is used to address imbalances, manage chronic health conditions or assist with recovery from injury or surgery.
Collaboration We will work with your medical professional to assist in the transition out of therapy, into post rehabilitation, and ultimately an exercise maintenance program. Staying in contact with your medical professional is an important part of the process to ensure we’re providing you with the best protocol based approach, as well as ensure this is the best approach for your body. Please call or email the studio to set up an initial assessment.
“Heather initially worked in conjunction with my Physical Therapist, which I appreciated and demonstrated her commitment to my well-being. Once I was discharged from PT, Heather continued to pay attention to my body mechanics and always has time to take her advanced academic knowledge and scale it down to easy to understand explanations. I am stronger, more flexible and continue to see improvement through personalized sessions that keep me moving forward. I recommend Lakeshore Pilates without any reservation.” -Jane, Registered Nurse
“I have had problems with my SI joint for quite some time. Working with Heather has been amazing! The first session I was able to walk with relief. And since I have been coming once a week, I have had no SI joint pain…none! What a blessing!” -Mickey
“Magic! My shoulder feels so much better after just one session. It’s amazing. I’m so grateful for your work.” -Susan
“I just want you to know my pelvic floor home routine to help with prolapse is making a big difference. I have noticed a significant change. THANK YOU SO MUCH!” -Sarah
“Even though I don’t do my home routine as much as I should, I’m still amazed at how great my back feels!” – Jill
“After having multiple back and neck issues my excellent physical therapist recommended Pilates, in particular, Heather at Lakeshore Pilates, to focus on exercise rehab and strengthening. Now, I feel 20 years younger. This past summer, I was able to kayak, hike, swim, and bike during my vacation – all in one week – with NO problems! Pilates is the best age defying method available!”
