Pilates is a form of exercise that re-educates how you move and teaches body awareness.
That's the essence of Pilates-based training. We incorporate Pilates into your rehab so that you develop strength, learn correct movement patterns, and truly learn what it means to work from your core. If you are injured or in pain, specialized Pilates equipment acts as an "assistant" so you can still work without overdoing it.
The equipment has a spring system that can be used to rehabilitate, prevent injuries, and increase strength. Pilates is based on principles of core control/elongation, breathing, efficiency of movement, alignment/posture, and movement integration of the upper and lower body.
A full commitment is made to each patient and much thought is put into reaching your goals based on a thorough evaluation of your posture, strength, flexibility, movement, gait, and function.
Look What Others Are Saying About Wellness Rehab Inc...
Linda A. overcame pelvic pain and is now back to doing pilates classes without pain!
"I recently started private Pilates classes with Cynthia Weiss, PT. I leave her classes with decreased pain because she knows how to cue me to get myself back into alignment and perform the exercises properly. I have tried Pilates many times and have been injured because the teachers really do not understand pelvic instability like a PT. In addition, Cynthia is a dancer and understands posture and movement. I highly recommend Cynthia for other patients looking for a private or group Pilates class. She has given me so much hope that I can finally learn how to stop placing myself out of alignment and get stronger."
Lois P. highly recommends Wellness Rehab to anyone who needs treatment!
"Cynthia Weiss has been my physical therapist since 1993. I have a chronic, intermittent pain syndrome in my feet and since then have been diagnosed with osteopenia and scoliosis. Cynthia has helped me through my flare-ups to stay mobile and work through the pain to keep my body functional. She gives me hands-on manipulation of my joints and soft tissue. She uses release techniques to treat my symptoms. We also use therapeutic Pilates on mat and equipment. For all the years I have known Cynthia, she has been a skilled professional. She takes continuing education courses and gets certified in new techniques. She is always looking for ways to enhance her knowledge of the latest techniques in her profession. Cynthia's greatest asset is her compassion and empathy in addition to her level of professionalism. She is flexible with scheduling and always has the ability to change a program or technique to suit a patient's symptoms. I have no reluctance when I recommend her to anyone I know who needs treatment. I can only give her my highest praise!"
Robbin P. gained strength and resilience after taking Wellness Rehab exercise programs!
"I have been noticing less strength and resilience, which gradually crept in, and I’m wanting my old self back. I tried various exercise programs, but nothing clicked enough that I could get my self to stick with it. A friend told me about Cynthia’s class, and I eventually tried it out, with skepticism. Immediately, renewed balance and strength felt so good. I had some individual sessions, too, which were useful to let Cynthia really nitpick over how I move. Now, my sister and a neighbor are interested and ready to sign up, too. Love spreading the good news! You just don’t know what is possible until an expert like Cynthia shows you what to strengthen, what form to focus on, making it accessible and meaningful to your particular body and life."
