When used in conjunction with physical therapy, Pilates can greatly accelerate the healing process and improve long-term outcomes.
Donna believes in the importance of tailoring treatment and exercise programs to each individual's unique needs. During the initial consultation, she takes the time to listen to her patients, thoroughly assess their condition, and understand their goals.
