My last physical therapist told me to look into Pilates. I must say that the last therapist was a big disappointment - they made it clear that they liked a challange and that my case was challanging but after 12 weeks basically said you are on your own we cannot help you any further. The doctor has said that they will not refer me to any more physical therapists because the ones that I've seen are very good - I've seen 7 in the last 1 1/2 years. Yet they say there is nothing that can be done surgically.
How does one find a Pilates instructor that is willing to work with someone who is in constant pain? Is it a good idea to try to do Pilates while you are in pain? I feel that a regular class would just be too much? Is there something that would be better to try first? Would you try a book or DVD?
