What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical pilates adds an additional level of physiological knowledge to the standard pilates exercises. This means that the physiotherapist can cater exercises and movements to your specific condition, allowing the appropriate targeting of problem areas promoting greater injury management and recovery.
Clinical pilates can be used to treat acute spinal conditions, rehabilitation from chronic neck pain, maintain muscle strength or regain muscle control for postnatal patients.
Your physiotherapist will work one-on-one with you to devise a tailor-made program to ensure you recover fully from your condition/injury.
Once you’ve got excellent technique, control and your symptoms are stable, the physiotherapist may progress you from one-on-one sessions to small groups of up to 3 in our pilates classes program.
Upon completion of your program, your physiotherapist may recommend undertaking more pilates classes to maintain your health and progress in recovery.
