Pilates for Injury Recovery
Pilates is one of the most effective methods for treating back pain because you are actively participating in the work, rather than being passively treated. The Pilates movements and exercises help your muscles create new muscle memory. At Joyful Movement, our goal is to help you heal, and return to doing the work activities and sports that make you happy and healthy.

Shortly after the birth of my second child, I began Pilates with Laura. This may sound like a cliche -- but it has literally changed my life. Laura and I worked together for about 10 sessions, and she gave me a very simple home routine, that I started doing every morning. Sometimes I would only do 10 minutes, but I did it every morning. I have not had a single back problem since! ... The Pilates that Laura exposed me to has literally changed my life! - Mary Sackett, Attorney
After 20 years of back pain, I have finally felt an incredible shift as a direct result of the careful and experienced instruction from Laura. I learned pretty fast Laura is more than a Pilates teacher. She understands the complexities and subtleties of my body. Laura knew even just by looking at my posture for the first time what I needed, and she was right. Her tailored program combined with a recommendation to work with a local Osteopath has, in a matter of months, set me well on the way to being back to full health and capability. This treatment is truly created for a long term healing results. - Christian Douglas, Owner, Backyard Farm Co.
