What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of exercise developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates which focuses on the balanced development of the body.

The six principles of Pilates are: centering, control, flow, breath, precision and concentration.

Its foundation is alignment and strengthening of the core muscles -- the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and the back. As core strength increases, so does stability and control, allowing a body to move freely and efficiently.

REHAB at Aiea integrates these Pilates principles into our patient’s rehabilitation programs using classical Pilates apparatus. Our equipment includes specifically designed pieces to meet the unique rehabilitation challenges of all of our patients from the elite athletes to those recovering from a stroke. This is what we call Clinical Pilates.

REHAB therapists utilize Pilates to successfully treat many conditions and diseases including:

  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder impingement/tendonitis
  • Hip bursitis
  • Ankle and knee injuries
  • Total joint replacements
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Stroke
  • Scoliosis
  • Incomplete spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic amputations

Home Assessments

Home assessments are conducted to evaluate home environments for safety and accessibility issues. REHAB therapists will provide recommendations and offer practical and functional solutions to make living at home easier and safer for clients with physical limitations.

Adaptive Equipment

REHAB’s occupational therapists recommend adaptive equipment that maximizes client’s independence in performing activities of daily living. In addition, we assist clients with ordering the appropriate equipment and provide training on the proper use of equipment. Examples of popular adaptive equipment include sock aides, adaptive eating utensils, walking assistive devices and grabbers/reachers.

Orthotic/Prosthetic Fitting and/or Fabrication

Occupational therapists provide individualized fitting and fabrication of hand, wrist and finger splints to either protect the joint or assist in function. REHAB’s physical therapist will work in conjunction with a trained prosthetist for proper fitting and functional use of braces and prostheses, such as artificial limbs. REHAB provides training in using the prosthesis, including donning/doffing, gait/stair training and balance training.

Work Health Programs are designed to reduce the costs of worker’s compensation by partnering with employers and injured employees in the prevention of work injuries and comprehensive medical rehabilitation of the injured worker.

Work conditioning – Highly structured, goal-oriented, individualized programs designed to return the person to work. Included in this program are work simulation, general conditioning and work hardening.

Functional capacity evaluation – Determines an individual’s physical ability to perform work related tasks. Recommendations may include modified duty assignments that help the individual to get back to work sooner and reduce loss workdays.
