Pilates, Advanced Reformer Exercises
Hi All, I could use some guidance and advice. I've had my St. Jude for about 6 weeks. It was placed over, and the leads tied to, the left pectoralis, very near my axilla (arm pit). I have serious ortho issues (alignment, posture) that I've kept at bay with Pilates and after years reached a very advanced level of Pilates (reformer and chair) with amazing results. Today I showed my doc pics of typical moves and was told I shouldn't do them as I could rip the leads. "Maybe I could do some in another 6 months."
My PM came after 3 months of limited movement due to a nasty infection. I was hoping to restart my pilates since it's important for me to keep the area between my shoulders through hips strong, stretched, and the strength uniform from side to side or my spine and hip "twist". Due to the immobility of the past months my pain level and ortho issues have been inching up. I'm at a loss if I can't do the Pilates. Does anyone have any exercise suggestions? Just walking isn't actually isn't good for me. Thanks, any advice is appreciated.
