The Benefits of Clinical Pilates run by a Physiotherapist

Why should I choose Clinical Pilates?

Over the years, Physiotherapists have developed on the building blocks of the traditional Pilates methods and developed Clinical Pilates. Clinical Pilates are classes which are run by a specialist physiotherapist who tailors the program directly to your specific needs.

Clinical Pilates is used to train some muscles to become stronger, and others to relax, promote correct movement patterns and improve muscular control. Clinical Pilates provides an opportunity for patients to develop better control of their muscles, and allows the joints to be held in an optimal position. There is minimal impact on the joints and uses activation and control of the deep stabilising muscles of the body.

Pilates focuses on slow, controlled movements, breathing, alignment and core activation. Pilates can be used for:

  • Injury rehabilitation including sports
  • Injury prevention
  • General strength and fitness
  • Improve posture
  • Improve balance
  • Lower and mid back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Hip and knee injuries

“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorating the mind and elevating the spirit” – Joseph Pilates

Lack of these can lead to:

  • Poor posture
  • Neck and lower back pain
  • Headaches
  • Tendon and other repetitive strain injuries
  • Sports injuries
