What is clinical pilates?

Physiotherapy treatment often involves the use of exercises for low back and neck pain, repetitive strain injuries, shoulder and knee problems and sports injuries. Clinical pilates is an innovative approach to physiotherapy using research based treatment techniques on the clinical pilates equipment.

Clinical pilates is taught by experienced physiotherapists with post graduate training in clinical pilates and movement dysfunction ensuring that your sessions are effective and safe.

As well as treating the symptoms we aim to identify the cause, correct the postural problem, muscle imbalance or movement dysfunction and most importantly make sure your problem or pain does not recur.

Clinical pilates for sports injuries

This is where pilates equipment comes into its own allowing the physiotherapist to create an exercise programme  based on the physical requirements of the specific sport whether that be running, tennis, golf, cycling etc. Faulty movement patterns can be identified which are then reinforced with correct movement patterns that can improve technique and performance.

Advance rehabilitation can be achieved for athletes and dancers however the same principles will be apply if you are an occasional  sports enthusiast or have just taken up a new hobby.

What happens in a clinical pilates session?

Our physiotherapist will assess you by looking at your posture and the way you use your body in certain activities paying particular attention to movements that cause your pain. The cause of your symptoms or pain will be identified and fully explained to you. This may be from an injury or the compensation your body has made to this, a postural fault or a repetitive movement you make either at work or in training for sports.

An individual  exercise programme on the pilates equipment will be designed for you that aims to correct these faults and retrain or strengthen muscles that may have become weak or do not activate correctly.

Our physiotherapist will correct your posture and movements as you work on the equipment.

You will also be given one or two exercises to complete at home that will reinforce the new movement patterns or postural corrections that you have learned.

Clinical pilates clients are seen either on a 1:1 basis or in a small group max 2.
