Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a specific exercise regime, based on the teachings started by Joseph Pilates in the early 1920’s. Clinical Pilates combines the principle of the original Pilates technique with the latest research into spinal stability. Emphasis is on muscle control and correcting body movement. It has since become a rehabilitation tool for injury management and performance enhancement.

Clinical Pilates utilises spring loaded equipment such as the reformer and trapeze table to design a specific program for your needs. The equipment used facilitates correct muscle activation patterns and trains the body’s deep postural muscles. The purpose of training these muscles is to provide stability, strength and control to the lower back, pelvic and hip joints, upper back, neck and shoulder areas.
