What if I have an injury or physical restrictions?

One reason pilates and GYROTONIC® have become so popular is because they are safe to do with almost any injury or limitation. We have worked with clients who have had hip replacements and other types of surgeries, have fibromyalgia, scoliosis, herniated and bulging discs, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, radiation treatments, and other complications and/or restrictions.

However, it is important to understand that Chicago Northshore Kinetics instructors are NOT physical therapists. We strive to give you a good workout while taking care to avoid an injured area. Both GYROTONIC® and pilates exercise modalities are great ways to continue rehabilitating and healing and strengthening your body after physical therapy or post surgery.  However, if you are in pain or injured please consult your health care provider first.
