Does Pilates hurt?

You are here:

NO! The exercises are designed to help relieve pain by correcting muscle imbalances and improving bony alignment. The only pain felt should be mild muscle pain induced by the specific activation of weak/inhibited muscles or joint discomfort caused by mobilising previously restricted joints. All treatment-induced pain should completely disperse within 48 hours. If you feel pain for greater than 48 hours after your last session be sure to let your Physiotherapist know.

If you feel any pain with the homework exercises, cease the exercises immeadiately and contact your Physiotherapist.
