Alison is pleased to join the team of Pilates of Pasadena to provide clients the opportunity to work under the guidance of a physical therapist to assist in the transition from rehabilitation to an independent exercise program. Clients who may be done with their rehabilitation following surgery or injury and are not quite ready to exercise independently or fully transition into a Pilates program, may benefit from working with Alison during that period. Clients who have a complicated medical history or previous orthopedic injuries/surgeries may also benefit working with Alison as she has extensive experience in treating and managing orthopedic conditions. Or, if you just want the guidance of a physical therapist in your development of a wellness program, Alison can help!
