Clinical pilates is a form of exercise guided by physiotherapists for rehabilitation and prevention of injury. It is an adaptation of the original pilates method, incorporating current scientific knowledge and physiotherapy expertise.
Clinical pilates is instructed on a one to one or small group basis using floor exercises and spring loaded equipment to develop and train the deep abdominal and spinal muscles to provide stability and strength.
At Flex Sports Physiotherapy our focus is on accurate diagnosis and treatment of pain and injury as well as optimal postural alignment and biomechanics.
Clients with any of the following problems can benefit from clinical pilates:
At your initial consultation, your physiotherapist will make a detailed assessment of any injury, pain or postural problems present and introduce you to the basic principles of pilates. You will be shown how to perform appropriate exercises on the floor and reformer and an individual program will be developed for you. Your program can be tailored to your chosen sporting activity if required. You may also be provided with exercises and stretches to practice at home.
It is recommended that all clients complete at least two individual pilates sessions before progressing to small group classes. At Flex Sports Physiotherapy we offer three on one classes at specified times. Clients may also choose to continue with private one on one sessions, if they prefer.
