Clinical Pilates is a treatment tool used by physiotherapists trained in Pilates, linking current spinal stability research and the traditional exercise rehabilitation and conditioning work of Joseph Pilates. Clinical Pilates is ideal for use in the rehabilitation setting, for general health and well-being and as a preventive measure to avoid injury.
Your osteopath, physiotherapist, doctor or other health care professional may recommend Clinical Pilates as part of your rehabilitation. Clinical Pilates differs from a regular Pilates class as it is based on an individual assessment and uses exercises that are adapted to make them more suitable for clients with low back and neck pain or those recovering from injury. At your initial consultation, your physiotherapist will conduct a full clinical assessment including health history, lifestyle, posture, movement analysis and personal goals. An individualized program will be designed and will include exercises that can be done at home in between treatment sessions. Pilates exercises are done on a mat and often incorporate small equipment.
You can benefit from Clinical Pilates if you:
- are recovering from injury, surgery or childbirth
- want to prevent injury, improve posture, balance and flexibility
- are looking for a safe therapeutic exercise program
- want to improve core stability and muscle imbalances
When practiced correctly and regularly, Pilates will change the way you move by improving movement patterns and motor control and reducing risk of injury.
