I had experienced a serious leg injury that required surgery to repair a Tibia fracture which involved plates, pins and screws. Recovery from surgery involved 6 weeks non-weight bearing and 5 months physiotherapy which taught me to walk again. My leg was healing well but I had reached a plateau in healing. I was left in constant pain, feeling weak, unbalanced, fatigued and overall out of shape. I needed more. The constant physical pain and considerable weight gain also left me feeling depressed and defeated. I read a testimonial from a client at Ross Pilates that I could really relate to and decided to try it.
My goals were to strengthen my injured leg, reduce pain, improve balance and re-align my body for better posture. After 4 months I was thrilled to have reached my goals. I truly believe if I had not committed to Pilates I would have continued to have pain and limited mobility.
The instructors are well educated in Therapeutic Pilates, very encouraging and very attentive. I would strongly recommend Ross Pilates and Conditioning to anyone, whether they require help healing, or to relieve tension and stress, maintain good balance or gait or improve overall function. Pilates at Ross Pilates and Conditioning has changed my life!
