In order to prepare for an operation, your Pre-Op Pilates training program will be addressing the correction of your postural alignment as well as gaining strength and flexibility. The body in its best working order pre- procedure will assist in physically, mentally and emotionally preparing for a better process of post op recovery.
After an operation a surgical incision will take up to 6 weeks to heal. Abdominal muscles (involving TA) waste and atrophy from decreased use, leaving the spine and pelvis vulnerable to injury when normal activities resume. Post-Op clients are closely guided through an individualised routine, which is developed at your pace to regain strength and increase flexibility. Once you have medical clearance from your physician an initial 1:1 assessment is performed which leads to the establishment of an appropriate therapeutic plan to maximise your rehabilitation.
*A medical referral from your physician is required for all specialty Pilates prior to training, please bring this along on your first appointment.
