What is Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates, a form of Pilates administered by qualified physiotherapists in a supervised environment, is aimed towards improving muscle strength; posture; core stability; fitness levels, and body awareness. While mat Pilates and reformer Pilates take a generalised approach to this form of exercise, Clinical Pilates offers a more personalised and rehabilitation-focused method.

Unlike traditional Pilates, Clinical Pilates is supervised by university trained healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists or exercise physiologists who have a deep understanding of anatomy, biomechanics, and injury management. This means that your exercise prescription will be tailored to you, with consideration of any injuries or medical conditions you may have, whether you choose to engage in a group class or one-on-one session.

One of the key benefits of Clinical Pilates is its aim to rehabilitate a wide range of injuries, including back pain, neck pain, joint injuries, and musculoskeletal conditions. The exercises are carefully tailored to address specific weaknesses, and movement dysfunctions, designed to assist in the recovery process.

Strength and Stability

In addition to injury rehabilitation, Clinical Pilates focuses on developing core strength and stability. The deep core muscles, including the abdominal, pelvic floor, and spinal muscles, are targeted and strengthened through precise and controlled movements. By developing a strong core, you may improve your posture, enhance stability, improve back pain, and reduce the risk of future back pain episodes.

Flexibility and Range of Motion

Flexibility and range of motion are also key components of Clinical Pilates. The exercises incorporate dynamic and static stretching techniques designed to help improve flexibility and increase joint mobility. Enhanced flexibility aims to contribute to better posture, reduced muscle tension, and improved overall movement efficiency which can reduce your risk of strains and pains.

Fitness and Body Awareness

Depending on how you and your Pilates instructor design your sessions, Clinical Pilates has the ability to give you a full-body workout. Clinical Pilates instructors will show you how to use each piece of equipment, whether on or off the Pilates reformer, to work on specific sets of muscles. With this, Clinical Pilates classes aim to increase both general strength and fitness and body awareness.

Engaging in regular Clinical Pilates sessions may have a positive impact on your mental well-being as well.


All About Clinical Pilates Sessions

The flowing movements, focused breathing techniques, and relaxation components of Pilates are thought to assist in reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and enhancing overall mental clarity.

Clinical Pilates sessions typically begin with a thorough assessment conducted by our practitioners. This assessment aims to identify your specific needs, goals, and any existing injuries or limitations. Based on this assessment, we will create a personalised program to address your unique requirements.

During your sessions, the healthcare professional will guide you through a series of exercises using dedicated Pilates equipment such as reformers, stability balls, and resistance bands. These exercises are tailored to your abilities and are designed to progressively challenge your strength, flexibility, and stability.
