What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a physiotherapy-based exercise program that uses the foundations of Pilates to help people improve their core strength and stability. The program utilizes specially designed equipment and reformers, which help to target key groupings of muscles to balance the body and prevent injury. These machines use complex springs that offer support while challenging core stability and strength to promote healing.
On top of providing relief from pain, clinical pilates helps strengthen muscles that may have been affected by an injury or condition. It also can help maintain optimal posture, improve the body’s movement patterns, and provide overall greater balance for everyday life activities.
Combining physiotherapist principles with active rehabilitation techniques, the exercises are low-impact, meaning your risk of injury from movement is minimized. The main focus in Clinical Pilates is on breathing technique and applying correct form when performing exercises to maximize safety while developing muscle tone, joint mobility and posture. A physiotherapist-led Clinical Pilates session can be tailored to the individual needs of each participant, allowing them to develop the skills they need for their specific goals; whether that be rehabilitation following an injury, general wellness or sports performance. By targeting the core muscles through Pilates-based exercises, Clinical Pilates helps you gain strength and flexibility for better overall health.
