Perceptive & Good
May is very perceptive and good at picking out which muscles that are not working as they should!
Better Body Alignment & Awareness
After a few sessions with May, I realize if I don’t center my body when I walk and stand, all the pains in my right knee and lower back returns. Now I consciously seek to distribute equal weight to both legs and align my body when I walk. Thanks May!
Given Me Hope That I'll Walk Normally Again
May has given me hope that I will in the near future, be able to walk normally again with minimal pain in my knees. She is great at getting to the root of the problem, in correcting muscular imbalances through manual therapy, pilates and home exercises. Thank you, May!
Relieves Knee Pain, Improves Fitness
I'm glad to have May as my Pilates instructor. May has helped me with my bad knee through exercises and orthopedic manipulation. She is also very patient, and committed to my body's improvement beside my knee.
Knee exercises and activities that I can continue on my own
Working overseas, I came back to Singapore for a short four week holiday and thought I should get some Pilates classes to further strengthen my weak knee due to a meniscus tear. I found Move Therapy by googling and signed up for my 1-to1 trial class. May went through my problem and what the doctors did for me. She then designed a set of exercises and activities which I could continue on my own when I go back to work, overseas.
After my first trial lesson, I was just so amazed by the differences in my legs. When I arrived back in Singapore, although I’ve recuperated from the meniscus tear through physiotherapy and physical therapy at the hospital, my legs still felt swollen and stiff. I was not able to bend my knees. My attempts at swimming, which was recommended by the doctor, was hard, as I wasn't sure how to move anymore. After my first session with May, my leg muscles felt more relaxed and subsequent sessions continued to make me feel I’m near full recovery.
The exercises and activities May prescribed were easy enough to continue at home and in a gym anywhere I go. Thanks!
I'm running more, have less injury
I am an avid runner. I run 10km a few times a week. I had hurt my ankles, calves just to name a few of the body parts I’d injured from running. Many of times I didn’t wait until I have completely recovered before I resumed running. It had resulted in the injury being prolonged. After attending May’s Pilates classes for about a year, I have gained better awareness of my body and movement. May taught me a lot about core strengthening, maintaining good posture and about movement. I’m more aware of my running posture. I find myself correcting my posture on the go like altering my foot alignment when I encounter discomfort, as well as how to stretch after. I can run more often because I have less injury now. Thank you May.
NO MORE KNEE PAIN
"I was so worried about climbing Wutai Shan (Shanxi, China) because I'd knee pain. I wanted to perform the Buddhist rite of walk, pray and kneel on every three steps up the 1,080 stairs of the sacred mountain. It was the main reason for going. It would be very difficult to do with my kneecap problem. My sister recommended Move Therapy to me. After one session, I was so surprised there was no more pain on my kneecap. I felt I was walking with very light steps. The relief was so immediate, it took me by surprise. Of course, I continued to roll after, using the foam roller. It wasn't just from one class at Move Therapy, but the class showed me how to and on which area of my legs I should focus on when I roll. I was able to walk, pray and kneel up Wutai Shan. A wish come true. No knee pain. Thank you."
Exercise, 1st Choice Of Treatment For Knee Pain
Given the popularity of knee arthroscopy and knee replacement surgery, it may seem like surgery is the medical choice of treatment for knee osteoarthritis. The truth is exercise is the first choice of treatment, as exercise is relatively safe, compared to surgery. Regular exercise also keeps the weight down which reduces the load on the knees.
However, the reality is, few people with knee pain actually exercise because exercise makes their knees feel worse. Research shows adding manual therapy to an exercise programme — where the knee pain is relieved — can help you stay long enough with the exercise to see the benefits of exercise…
What Type Of Knee Pain Do You Have?
There are two main types of knee pain: gradual onset and traumatic pain. Most knee pain happens gradually rather than due to accidents. Gradual-onset knee pain is often caused by muscle imbalance. The location of the knee pain determines the remedy.
A combination of Manual Therapy and Pilates is an effective remedy for gradual-onset knee pain as it targets the muscle imbalance…
