Why do Pilates?

It is well known that pain can inhibit the function of the surrounding muscles and the way we move. Once pain has gone the muscle function does not automatically return to normal. It is necessary to improve motor control and strength to address this movement dysfunction and reduce likelihood of pain returning again.
