Clinical Pilates

Pilates needs to be specific to the individual to be beneficial for patients with certain injuries, and not used as a generic tool for everyone. Clinical Pilates, which differs from generic Pilates classes, identifies key issues by applying carefully selected exercises to patients with specific injuries to optimise gains whilst significantly reducing the likelihood of injury aggravation. It is essential to have a review with a physiotherapist to assess the suitability of a core stability program for you should you intend to commence Pilates for your injury.

Clinical Pilates exercises offer numerous benefits, which include:

  • Improved posture and core stability
