Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. Clinical Pilates is often used in conjunction with physiotherapy as a means of treating a variety of injuries, as well as progressing women’s health patients with pelvic floor issues back to higher level impact activities. Further, pre and post-partum women benefit from Clinical Pilates for management of physical wellness through pregnancy and support and progression of movement and exercise through the post-partum stage.
This is the combination of the Pilates exercise method and traditional physiotherapy to produce a safe non-impact exercise progression with broad applications. I have advanced training in Pilates for rehabilitation as well as fitness.
I use Clinical Pilates in addition to my other treatments as it is particularly beneficial when treating the following challenges:
- Pelvic floor issues.
- Pre and Post partum conditions – back pain, pelvic pain, core/DRA.
- Back & neck issues related to poor posture, chronic tension and fatigue.
- Sports related injuries.
- Repetitive stress injuries.
- Muscle strains, imbalances and joint injuries.
- Stiffness or hypermobility.
- Hip, leg and ankle injuries.
