Clinical Pilates is an adaptation of traditional Pilates and takes a more personalized approach to your treatment.
The goal of Clinical Pilates is to help activate the specific muscles in your body that will bring the biggest rewards, namely fast and safe recovery and a return to optimal mobility.
Physiotherapists modify traditional Pilates exercises to help with the rehabilitation and prevention of muscular injuries. Specialized equipment such as reformers and trapeze tables can be used along with floor exercises, and exercises performed on a ball. Spring-loaded equipment is a major component of clinical Pilates.
One of the major focuses of this type of therapy is the development of strength in the core muscles – the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Along with this, clinical Pilates focuses on postural education and allowing optimal movement in the body.Rather than giving a general exercise program the Physiotherapist will use knowledge of your body and tailor exercises to your individual needs.
