Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility and breathing. It has been adapted from the traditional form of Pilates established by Joseph Pilates. It is often used in conjunction with Physiotherapy as a means of treating a variety of injuries, particularly neck and back dysfunction. There is an emerging body of scientific evidence supporting the application of Clinical Pilates in restoring optimal movement patterns and managing low back pain. Clinical Pilates focuses on the retraining and recruitment of the stabilizing muscles (core) that support the back and body movement.
Clinical Pilates is specific to the individual. It identifies the key issue restricting movement and focuses on carefully selected exercises to optimise the individuals’ physical performance. It is suitable for all ages and physical backgrounds. Pilates is considered a holistic approach to optimising the body’s efficiency from the inside out.
