NEUmovement Pilates and Physiotherapy has welcomed physiotherapist Jen Gulley to the company to offer a collaborative approach to health care.
The goal of manual physiotherapy is to restore the body to its natural working order. It corrects faulty movement patterns and helps prevent injury. When physiotherapy is combined with Pilates – a form of body conditioning that helps align the body, improves oxygen flow and engages core muscles – Gulley says the brain creates new pathways to the muscles.
“The biggest challenge when using manual therapy as a treatment, is making the changes last, and making the improvement a permanent one.
“Essentially, the client creates muscle memory before leaving the studio and the effects of physio are lasting significantly longer.”
Also joining the NEUmovement team is Dr. Karl Muendel, a leading pain specialist in Western Canada. He is working with Gulley and the team of Pilates instructors to offer clients yet another perspective to address their ailments.
NEUmovement Pilates and Physiotherapy, owned by Lara Yanik and Kate Watson, is located on 53rd Avenue.
