What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical pilates is an individually tailored assessment and treatment approach towards rehabilitation from injury. Clinical pilates utilises the additional level of physiological and anatomical knowledge your physiotherapist has to the standard pilates exercises. This means that the physiotherapist can provide 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 and back pain, rehabilitate sporting injuries,improve muscle control and treat pre and 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 in our pilates classes program.
