Why Pilates And Physiotherapy?
Damian Wyard combines the science of physiotherapy with Pilates in Downtown Toronto, to rehabilitate the spine and peripheral joints. He works with over-use injuries, sports injuries, lower back and neck pain. He provides one-on-one rehabilitation instruction on the classic equipment and supplements this with home exercises. After working in other physiotherapy clinics Damian saw that patients were struggling with basic home programs and not getting better. Many injuries need a gradual re-loading approach to avoid making it worse, but strengthening the sensitive tissue. The Pilates equipment allows painful joints to be supported, while providing resistance and gradual re-loading of the injury. Some conditions require more complex cuing/correction to break old movement patterns that perpetuate pain.
Many muscle/tendon sports or over-use injuries need gradual reloading/strengthening of the painful tissue.
Read how we treat acute and persistent pain differently, using gradual re-loading of painful joints and tissue.
