How Can Pilates Help an Injured Athlete?
Pilates uses many of the same principles used to help injured athletes recuperate. 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. Increases in strength and improvements in flexibility are additional benefits of Pilates.
How Can Pilates Help Prevent Injury?
Pilates is being used by more athletes as a means to “crosstrain.” By strengthening the core muscles, Pilates helps to teach the body more efficient and balanced movement. Pilates improves flexibility to help prevent injury. Athletes who have better core strength are thought to have better dynamic control of their movements, and are less likely to sustain injuries. This is what is known as “neuromuscular control,” which has been used to prevent injuries including ACL tears and ankle sprains1. Use of Own Body.
