Clinical Pilates is a specialised form of Pilates developed by physiotherapists, which incorporates techniques focused strongly on core muscle strength and stability. Clinical Pilates is recommended to manage neck and back pain, as part of a rehabilitation program or to compliment an existing fitness regime.
Following a detailed physiotherapy assessment, specific Pilates exercises are prescribed, which focus on rehabilitation, prevention of re-injuries or improved core strength. Each client performs a series of specific exercises guided by a specially trained physiotherapist, either individually by appointment or in a small group. In this way each Clinical Pilates session is tailored to meet the needs of each individual patient.
