Mark Harmon Finds Pilates Physical Therapy After a Shoulder Injury

It's Stephen Dunn with CORE Therapy and Pilates and let's talk about Pilates Physical Therapy. I am a Pilates Physical Therapist and today I want to go over this blog that was sent to me by Linda, our wonderful front desk gal.

Linda sent me this blog because it was an actor she likes and he basically recovered from a shoulder injury with physical therapy using Pilates, or what we call Pilates Physical Therapy.  The article comes from and let's go check it out.

Mark Harmon has a shoulder injury.

The title of the article is "How Mark Harmon's painful injury resulted in him discovering a new fitness passion."

Mark Harmon who we know from NCIS has had lots of success in the acting world. We quickly learn in this article that he injured his shoulder and let's read what this says...

"The former NCIS star rarely gives interviews but previously opened up about his love of working out and revealed that after suffering a shoulder injury he discovered a new passion in the process for Pilates. Chatting with Men's Journal, the dad of two revealed that he was a huge fan of the workout, saying it completely kicks my butt. I had a shoulder injury that drew me to Pilates and the physical therapist I went to was all about that. They kick your butt on those machines."


He's referencing the Pilates reformers, the Pilates Cadillac or trap table,  the Pilates chair, and the barrels. Those are the Pilates machines and I love it. He found a physical therapist that was using Pilates to rehabilitate his injury, which is exactly what we do at CORE Therapy & Pilates in Westlake Hills, in Austin, Texas.

He continued... "I was a big Runner after college. I used to do 60 to 70 miles every week and I wish I had some of that back now." He is referencing back then, I wish I had Pilates back then...  

"Pilates is all about controlling the machine and that's twice as hard. The Townsend sports star turned actor has been a household name for many years that made the bold decision not to use social media."

So there's the Blog about Mark Harmon, who doesn't do a lot of interviews and doesn't do social media. Hmmm, maybe something we can learn from this guy on all fronts. Let's get back to Pilates physical therapy.

A shoulder injury led him to use the Pilates repertoire with his physical therapist. The whole body was worked through the Pilates machines and the Pilates Concepts and now he's a fan of Pilates after the fact.
