The Pilates method is a system of exercises that was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 20th century with the purpose of improving muscle strength and developing overall fitness.

Clinical Pilates, an adaptation of traditional Pilates, serves to provide therapeutically modified exercises in order to assist in rehabilitating and preventing injuries.

This allows physiotherapists to offer personalized treatment sessions with exercises that are specifically tailored to your individual needs and goals.

The goal of Clinical Pilates is to activate and engage specific muscles in your body in order to address dysfunction and provide a safe and effective recovery process to help you regain optimal mobility.

Our Cypress physiotherapists in North Vancouver offering Clinical Pilates have training and knowledge in anatomy, physiology, orthopedics, and biomechanics which allows them to adapt and modify exercises and use specialized equipment to provide you with a quality rehabilitation program. These various exercises will take place on the floor, on an exercise ball, or with specialized equipment such as a reformer and a trapeze table.

Clinical Pilates is a goal-oriented therapy that can be used to address a wide range of injuries and conditions. It focuses on building a strong foundation within the core by targeting the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles.

By generating a stable framework, an individual can then progress to address postural dysfunction and work on generating improvements in balance, strength, motor control, coordination, flexibility, and breathing. It is also a beneficial way to participate in low-impact exercises in order to maintain your overall health.
