Highland Physical Therapy

It Is Time For March Mat-ness

​No, we are not talking about the college basketball tournament. We at Highland Physical Therapy are bringing back a series that we have done in the past to keep you active and healthy this spring.Exercise is a key component in staying healthy and preventing injuries. Doing yoga or Pilates can help you build strength, flexibility, and balance, aiding in improving posture, increasing cardiovascular endurance, and reducing stress.

Mat exercises such as these can also be beneficial for managing chronic pain, such as back pain or neck pain.Through proper form and technique that comes with regular practice of yoga or Pilates exercises, people can improve their muscle strength and better understand which areas of the body they need to strengthen while addressing any physical limitations they may have.

This knowledge can then be used to prevent future injury or pain by strengthening weak areas and making sure they are balanced out with strong ones. In addition to helping manage existing discomfort, performing mat exercises regularly can also help prevent injuries and pain from happening in the first place.

With regular practice, your body can become better conditioned to handle physical activity. By increasing your strength, flexibility, and balance you will be less likely to experience muscle strains or other aches and pains when doing physical activities such as gardening or playing sports.
Doing yoga or Pilates regularly can also increase awareness of how you move and help you identify when certain movements may lead to increased risk of injury. This knowledge can then be used to modify your movements in order to reduce any potential risks. All these benefits combined make mat exercises like yoga and Pilates an invaluable part of staying healthy and preventing pain or injuries in the future.

Here are some exercises that kicked off our March Mat-ness Series
