...More than 320 studies with the title keyword "Pilates" have been published in MEDLINE, the main medical research database?
The purpose of this website is to:
It is a work-in-progress project by an Exercise Scientist M.S., who is equally fascinated by the original Pilates method and movement science research. Please check back in often, new content is constantly added.
What is Pilates?
Pilates lacks the research quality required to advance the support for the Pilates Method in the medical community and consequently the public. Maybe some will say Pilates doesn’t need research – it can stand on its own.
From my perspective as a health care professional, Pilates is the ultimate rehabilitation modality for injury, post injury and injury prevention due to its ability to facilitate strength, flexibility and coordination through mindfulness.
I want it to be recognized in the medical community.
I want to provide confidence for peoples’ decision to trust Pilates as a rehabilitation tool.
