Pelvic Floor Health for Men

Not only women suffer from pelvic floor instability and abdominal diastasis, which contribute to low back pain and incontinence. These symptoms can be alleviated with proper alignment, postural reeducation and balancing of pelvic floor muscles. Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates, and prior to his death, was called the Art Of Contrology, a movement science created by a man for men and women. Therapeutic Pilates combines manual techniques, muscle reeducation, stretching and Pilates strengthening for the elimination of pain and restoration of proper function.

Owner Gail Kotel, MPT, says, “Therapeutic Pilates offers one-on-one patient care and hourlong, hands-on sessions, as well as private and duo Pilates in center city. The holistic practice incorporates traditional and non-traditional physical therapy techniques for pain management.  Like physical therapy, Pilates focuses on relieving pain and healing the body. The combination of these practices offers a safe and effective way to heal.”
