Gentle Care Pilates Program

Beyond Basics Physical Therapy offers a Pilates one-on-one program, who specializes in pelvic floor rehab, pre-natal/post-partum care, orthopedic, sports, and dance-related injuries and is a certified Pilates Instructor. Our program is specially tailored to the needs of patients with the pelvic floor or chronic pain concerns, by addressing the unique challenges faced by such patients in the later stages of their rehabilitation process.

Our classes will guide clients/patients through Pilates exercises, and adapt or modify techniques based on patient's individual needs. In this way, our patients become empowered to safely re-enter the general exercise and movement area, where they can pursue the fitness regimen of their choice.

Our Pilates program welcomes outside clients and non-patients as well. Private one-on-one sessions can be taught according to the level and goals of each client. We encourage all potential clients who are interested in utilizing Pilates to achieve better wellness, fitness, and movement awareness to make an appointment with our licensed PT Pilates instructor.
