Pilates is a series of controlled movements performed on a specially designed spring-resistant exercise apparatus called a Reformer.
Each session is conducted one-on-one with a physical therapist who is Pilates certified.
Pilates differs from traditional exercise as it uses specific methods to trigger stabilizing muscles around the joints that help support injured areas.
There is extensive research supporting the use of a PT Pilates Program (as opposed to Fitness Pilates) in a variety of injuries. Pilates PT has also been proven to regain motor control and strength, so patients can achieve proper movement.
A person’s medical history, motion patterns and impairments determine the exercise prescriptions. The exercises are developed to mimic functional tasks to improve ability in everyday tasks and sports.

“I recently had two weird stress fractures and a new diagnosis of Osteopenia, which really concerned me. I was recommended to try Pilates with Jenna Jordan and have noticed such an improvement of my core strength, flexibility and posture. She made my sessions something I looked forward to. The icing on the cake was when I had my recent visit with my Endocrinologist; she said my bone density showed so much improvement that I no longer have the diagnosis of Osteopenia and was able to discontinue my medication”
“I am grateful to Jenna Jordan and Pilates for the quality of life that I now enjoy. I had a major spinal surgery a number of years ago, and until a year and a half ago, I was able to keep my back issues, including degenerated disks along my spine under control. Then, I was racked with severe pain and debilitating spasms, which when they occurred, prevented me from walking and even standing. At that time, I started seeing Jenna and using the Pilates Reformer. I was so impressed with her wealth of knowledge and skill sets with Pilates. She had a number of exercises that targeted specific areas of need, that even I, who was quite limited, could do. “
“I started Physical Therapy with Jenna Jordan in April 2020 after experiencing a tremendous amount of lower back pain, which despite numerous medical consultations, was not getting any better. Three days a week of Pilates Physical Therapy with Jenna made a world of difference for me. She helped strengthen the small muscles in my back and my core to help support and take the pressure off my lower back. This, in turn, has allowed me to continue to play tennis at the level I would like to play.”
“Jenna Jordan has shown concern, patience and dedication with me, and the extensive knowledge to teach me how to best use my muscle groups and muscle memory. I have a condition called Drop Foot, which is a spinal stenosis caused by disk compression and slippage. It may correct, but could take a long time, which I do not have. She has helped me learn and develop my core strength, which has eliminated my pain completely and has helped me walk more safely and further. I believe that her treatment has provided the only solution that could help my condition.”
“My experience with Jenna’s Pilates-based PT has been truly transformational in dealing with my severe back injury. I was initially told that I needed surgery but wanted to try PT first to rebuild my strength and heal a ruptured disc. Her expertise integrating Pilates with personalized PT has given me the ability to eliminate constant pain, rebuild my strength and return to the activities that I enjoy. Jenna brings both her heart and her head to every session; it was a life-changing experience”
“The extensive amount of different exercises have improved my overall core strength, balance, flexibility, posture and even my golf swing. The sessions were difficult at times but I was up for that challenge and rewarded by seeing improvement and progress with each visit. I have even set-up my own mini Pilates area in my house to maintain my progress”
