Pilates is not just another physical fitness workout but can also be a form of rehabilitative exercise. In fact, studies have shown that Rehab Pilates can reduce pain and disability and improve your body’s recovery time. Regular Pilates training is also a great way to build strength inside out after an injury – it can help to strengthen the body’s musculature, improve balance and range of motion, and enhance bone density.
How is Rehab Pilates Different From Regular Exercise?
By using the reformer, rehab pilates allows the patient to control the level of difficulty of an exercise while supervised by a certified instructor. Through rehab pilates, patients can choose to complete a session at their own pace without overexerting themselves. Rehab Pilates also aims to reduce any discomfort a patient experiences from workouts, and helps them move more freely and confidently to achieve the desired results.
How is Rehab Pilates Different From Conventional Pilates?
Rehab Pilates has different objectives from conventional Pilates and, most importantly, should be instructed and supervised by well-trained pilates instructors knowledgeable on physical therapy to ensure safe and progressive methods in the client’s journey towards rehabilitation. Under instruction from a trained professional, Rehab Pilates is a mindful and physical rehab exercise regimen that helps clients channel their mind and body to recover from any injuries or chronic pains.
That is why Rehab Pilates is both a short-term and long-term answer to rehabilitation after an injury; consistent practice over time each session can effectively enhance your present condition while steadily increasing your ability to overcome increasingly difficult movements. This focus on slow and progressive resistance training makes Rehab Pilates safer and more efficacious compared to ordinary exercises as the speed and pace of each session are increased according to the body’s own unique recovery needs.
Frequently Asked Questions About Rehab Pilates
Is Rehab Pilates suitable for all ages?
Yes. Rehab Pilates can be suitable and beneficial to everyone. From amateur sports enthusiasts to dancers to celebrities to professional athletes, anyone can benefit from Rehab Pilates during their post-injury recovery journey.
What is the process to start Rehab Pilates?
The journey of Rehab Pilates will begin only after the injured person has completed their initial assessment sessions with a physiotherapist. After examining the level of the injury, the physiotherapist along with our trained Pilates instructors will construct a special programme designed to suit the client’s needs and desired rehabilitation outcomes. The assigned Pilates instructor will carefully observe the client’s progress over time and help adjust each workout to help them derive maximum benefit from Rehab Pilates.
Can I do Rehab Pilates if I have existing injuries?
Yes, of course! Rehab Pilates classes are designed to help you overcome new and existing injuries. Our Rehab Pilates instructors in Singapore are well trained and have a diverse range of experience in rehabilitation. The exercises recommended by our team are designed only after a thorough examination of your existing injury.

Can Rehab Pilates prevent further injuries from occurring?
Let’s be realistic. No form of exercise or precaution will be able to completely prevent a person from getting injured as unexpected incidents could still occur.

Having said that, Rehab Pilates can improve your balance and muscle strength to help prevent these everyday injuries from occurring.
