At Inspire Health, we go above and beyond the typical physical therapy in Buckhead. We offer a holistic approach to wellness from nutrition, exercise, and rehabilitation programs.

The Rehabilitation program is specifically for licensed healthcare professionals wishing to integrate modified STOTT PILATES® exercises for injury prevention and rehabilitation into their practices.

Inspire Health is one of the few wellness clinics that offer pelvic floor therapy in Atlanta alongside a pilates studio.

Therapists learn a systematic movement-based approach to neuromuscular re-education. They’re taught to observe and understand optimal and non-optimal movement strategies and how they correlate with pain and pathology.

*Neuromotor training principles guide the therapeutic exercise selection and progressions.
**Participants also learn how to facilitate the patient’s cognitive involvement in rehabilitation by using tactile facilitation techniques.
