ActiveCare Physical Therapy offers pilates rehabilitation therapy in midtown Manhattan. Physical therapist Karena Wu has over a ten year history in Pilates. She first became interested in Pilates when she saw the benefits of whole body strengthening with such a strong emphasis on posture and the core. Many injuries that she sees have some component of malalignment of the core. It is the ‘foundation of the house’ and oftentimes treatment to the core effects some sort of change in the injury, even a peripheral injury.
Karena earned her Certification in Pilates at the Professional Health and Fitness Institute (PHFI) in Bethesda, Maryland. The PHFI was developed by a Physical Therapist who created the certification only for those licensed in rehabilitation. As such, the program is specifically focused on rehabilitation programs that isolate muscle groups and then ties them together for more functional training and pain-free
return to activities.
