Staten Island (I-Newswire) October 4, 2013 - Matt Nelson, a well known Clinical Pilates instructor who previously worked with the dancers, acrobats and contortionists of Cirque du Soleil, is now working as a Rehab and Conditioning Expert at NY Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.
"Almost every kind of lifestyle can benefit from Clinical Pilates," Matt said. "I've even treated a running back from the Miami Dolphins for his knee and hip injuries." This is reminiscent of the fact that the creator of Pilates, Joseph Pilates, was, in fact, honing his art for athletes such as Max Schmeling, a boxer who faced Joe Louis in the 1930's. It wasn't until Ron Fletcher created a dance-based method that grew popular amongst celebrities of the time that this form of exercise became wrongly categorized as useful solely for dancers.
Nelson actually helped a severely injured LAPD officer get back to work after two years on sabbatical. Matt reflected on this particular job, saying, "She'd had two spinal surgeries, and tried countless forms of therapy, but nothing seemed to work. It took us only four to six weeks of working together, and I had her back on restrictive duty." This is because of the composition of Clinical Pilates, which incorporates Joseph Pilates' method with physical therapy techniques.
Proper rehabilitation is only achievable through understanding kinesiology. Aarzoo Patel, the Director of Physical Therapy at NYCPT, remarks on this when she says, "If you hurt your knee and come for Clinical Pilates as rehabilitation, we don't work the knee; we work the muscles above and below the knee. We balance out the body so that you strengthen the injured portion, and increase your core strength."
Perhaps Nelson's most popular success story is that of a girl in Cirque du Soleil who had fallen during the silk act. She suffered a broken pelvis, among other injuries, and was briefly in a coma. After six months of trying other rehabilitation techniques, she was brought in to see Matt for Clinical Pilates. Nelson worked what he calls the "stabilization" muscles, allowing support for the rest of the body. Her doctor couldn't believe the degree of extension she had achieved after only two months of working with Nelson.
Matt stressed the athletic perks of Clinical Pilates, saying "It has the ability to make you light on your feet, and is great for twisting and jumping, all through non-weight bearing exercises." On top of that, Pilates is great for every kind of sport, and is completely changeable depending on your profession. It aids in weight loss, and builds long, lean muscles, driving your focus for top performance, whether you are a child athlete, or a professional.
