Treatment

PhysicalTherapy.jpg

Our Physical Therapists (PT) and Physical Therapist Assistants (PTA) use their many years of expertise to individually evaluate and identify the source of your problem(s). Our holistic treatment approach encompasses a thorough evaluation, manual techniques, neuromuscular re-education, and Pilates-based exercises. This includes educating our clients on their injury, teaching correct body alignment and integrating these concepts to achieve their functional goals. We have found Pilates-based exercises to be highly effective in achieving that goal.

We include the Pilates Reformer, Trapeze, Chair, and other equipment created by Joseph Pilates.  We also have CoreAlign equipment that helps.  This standing functional unit helps the therapists with your alignment, stability, balance and neuromuscular work.

Evaluation:

Your first one-hour session will be an assessment with a Physical Therapist.  The PT will evaluate to come up with a treatment plan. Our therapists will need a detailed medical history from you and anything from your doctor that can help with your diagnosis and treatment.

In the state of Minnesota you are not required to see a doctor in order to begin physical therapy. Our therapists ask that you get a doctor's referral before you come in as it is required after 90 days of treatment. Some exceptions apply, so please call the studio for clarification. We suggest you complete the required forms ahead of time so that the full hour can be spent with the physical therapist. Click here to access the forms and bring them with you or scan and return to contactpilatesmn@gmail.com.

Wearing exercise clothes and a tank top or sports bra under your clothes is appropriate for shoulder, neck and back issues. We have private physical therapy rooms that are separate from the Pilates and CoreAlign areas.
