CLINICAL PILATES:
Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise that focusses on restoring posture, core stability, balance, strength, flexibility and an efficient breathing
pattern. The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century and has been used as a means of treating injuries
ever since.
Clinical Pilates is delivered by qualified clinicians and is particularly helpful in addressing injuries and muscle imbalances of the neck and
back. The literature demonstrates strong evidence in support of retraining the deep stabilising muscles for management of spinal pain.
Clinical Pilates focusses on retraining and improving recruitment of these core stabilising muscles as well as addressing poor posture and
improving strength and flexibility.
We utilise assessment and treatment tools to address each clients’ specific pathology and design a treatment regime to address the cause
of the problem rather than just treat the symptom. This gives better long term outcomes. It can be utilised as part of a treatment programme,
in one-on-one sessions or within a small group class.
Clinical Pilates helps with
Recovery from injury or surgery
Managing chronic illnesses and pain
Improved sporting performance in recreational and elite athletes
Maintaining general wellbeing and strength without impact on joints
