Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a method of specific exercise which has evolved from traditional Pilates with the input of physiotherapists and evidence based research into a rehabilitation tool for injury management and performance enhancement. 

Pilates within the clinical setting is an individualised program of exercises and strengthening techniques designed to improve control, optimise movement patterns and reduce the risk of injury, while taking into account that pathologies are generally sensitive to load and direction.

Pilates optimises the recruitment of the muscles within the core system that assist the body to maintain good posture and enhance biomechanical efficiency, with a strong emphasis on accurate diagnosis and treatment of pain and injury.
