At BeMoore Pilates, Yoga & Personal Training we seek to help our students who suffer from various hip and knee conditions.
Clients with trochanteric bursitis will benefit from building core strength. Pilates exercises increase the strengthening and stretching of the hip and lower back hip, abductors and gluteus medius and ITB.
An all round view is to promote core and lumbar strength and stability, lumbar mobility and general hip strength. This makes Pilates an ideal method of exercise.
A rehabilitation exercise program will focus on strength and flexibility- particularly in the knee and leg region.
Rehabilitation exercises focus on restoring movement, strengthening of the knee and hip, proprioception and balance.
Clients with collateral ligament sprains will benefit from Pilates exercises that strengthen the knee, hip joint and improve balance.
Hip and knee arthroplasty
The rehabilitation process depends on the individual client and the type of joint replacement. Different surgical procedures have differences in their rehabilitation protocols and one client may respond and recover very differently from another, even if they have had the same type of operation.
You will need to follow the guidance of your physiotherapist or surgeon. This will change during the course of your recovery as you regain movement and strength. Your health professional should provide information on your needs, your restrictions and your recommended range of movement.
