Client Testimonial

‘‘I was injured in 2002 when my car was rear-ended. I suffered a torn ligament in my left shoulder and was unable to lift my arm or put any weight on my shoulder. I play electric bass, but with this injury, I couldn't play music. After months and many sessions of physical therapy and acupuncture, my shoulder was healing with a deformity. I was still losing sleep at night due to pain. Going to a chiropractor terrified me, however I felt that I had tried everything else. Within 3 months of seeing Dr. Ban and other practitioners at the clinic, I had regained full range of motion and was playing bass again. I was so impressed that I have become a regular patient, coming in for “tune-ups” and treatment for other small problems I've had. ’’

Pilates

Pilates is an exercise technique that is unlike any other method we know for strengthening, flexibility, and pain reduction. Pilates training is interesting. It engages the mind at the same time as the body. Pilates requires the same type of focus as a walking meditation. It is a mind-body approach to exercise.

Pilates is all about the "core" muscles of the back and belly. These are the muscles that hold us up while gravity compresses us. The "core" provides stability for the spine. The "core" is made up of the smallest, deepest back muscles that lay underneath the layers of large muscles we use for everyday activities.

"Core" muscles get weak with age, lack of use, and injury. The result can be back pain, poor posture, decreased athletic performance, balance problems, discomfort, or even minor bladder problems. People who are too injured to do conventional strengthening can perform Pilates exercises to strengthen while healing.

There is nothing better than Pilates rehab for overstretched, whiplash-injured muscles and ligaments. Nothing.

In our office, Pilates improves the lives of people with the following conditions: chronic pain, lumbar and cervical disk injuries, whiplash injuries, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, knee and ankle problems, and shoulder injuries. Rehab Pilates is not only for knees, ankles, backs, necks, and shoulders. It is extremely effective for people with multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post- stroke disabilities. It is great for pre and post-natal conditioning as well.
