Therapy can take a number of forms, but one of the most effective is Pilates, a mind/body integration and movement system offered by IFSMED.

Pilates is used to reestablish correct and effective motor function and muscle activation. It has seen a great deal of popularity in recent years as an exercise and toning program. In addition to its use in the gym, Pilates can also be used to achieve a greater capacity for physical exercise, and develop a stronger mind and body relationship, which will carry over to include a wide variety of whole-life benefits.

This type of physical corrective therapy is adaptable to any fitness level and focuses on developing core strength and improving posture. At IFSMED, we tailor every program to the needs of particular patients — what works for one arthritis sufferer will not work for all. We are dedicated to creating treatments that are specific to the individual and their needs.

As part of our commitment to get you feeling better, we are committed to creating Pilates programs that are both safe and challenging and that can be adapted by our professionals at any time to increase their effectiveness for patients. With a wealth of knowledge, we are able to offer Pilates, mat classes, isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches in a clinical setting which provides a safe way to gain optimum health.
