One of the best tools for children's rehabilitation is the Pilates reformer. In this blog post, we'll talk about how the Pilates reformer can be used for children's rehabilitation. The Pilates reformer is a piece of equipment that looks like a bed with a sliding carriage and ropes or straps for resistance.

The reformer is used to improve core strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, which are all essential components of rehabilitation. Here are some ways the Pilates reformer can be used for children's rehabilitation.
Strengthening the Core
The core muscles are the muscles that support the spine and help maintain good posture. Children who have back pain or spinal injuries can benefit greatly from exercises that strengthen the core muscles. The Pilates reformer can be used to perform exercises that target the core muscles and improve posture. Exercises like the Hundred, Leg Circles, and Planks can be done on the reformer to strengthen the core muscles.
