What is a Pilates Springboard?
The Springboard consists of a board attached to the wall, together with springs from the Pilates Cadillac.
The board is usually 20 inches wide and 6 feet high and is equipped with springs of different lengths and stresses, along with handles, foot belts and a hoop that can be attached to springs. Along the sides, there are 10 pairs of eyebolts, in which the springs are fixed.
How can a Pilates Springboard help me when I need physical therapy?
At the Emerson Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Center, you will get to know many different types of therapies and techniques that will help you restore the proper functioning of muscles and improve the overall structure and mechanical potential.
The treatment will consist of various exercises - this is where the Pilates Springboard will help you recover/regain the correct functional supplement that you lost in the movement system. This is possible due to proper and specific exercises and programs, both therapeutic and therapeutic.recover/regain
You will also gain intense body awareness, developing proper mindfulness of joints and muscles, engaging correct proprioception through proper exercise. This, in turn, will challenge and activate the core stability and muscle function and restore precise control of body movements.
Our combination of Pilates board physical therapy and Pilates Springboard Exercises in the Emerson Physical Therapy & Rehab Center approach:
Essential unique features of Pilates Springboard vs. Pilates Reformer:
- Independent activation and specification of each limb, enabling correct and individual testing of the accurate load and function
- The springs are higher on the Springboard than on the reformer and are placed behind or in front of the body instead of under it:
This affects the spring force of the springs
The combination of additional work stability independently in each limb and stronger spring tension makes the Springboard Therapy much more precise when it comes to individualized exercises and activation and strengthening of the leg.
In EMERSON PHYSICAL THERAPY AND REHAB CENTER, the plans will be set based on a patient-specific diagnosis. After a thorough functional examination carried out by our therapists/doctors, they will adapt treatment plans that aim to increase stability, promote increased mobility, and eliminate all pain.
