What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is an increasingly popular form of exercise focussing on stability, control and balance. It is used in conjunction with Physiotherapy as a means of treating a variety of patient complaints, particularly low back pain.
We use a variety of equipment such as mats, reformers and trapeze tables to focus on the retraining of joint stability muscles. It is important to note the difference between this practice and generic Pilates classes.
Clinical Pilates applies carefully selected exercises to patients with specific injuries. This ensures optimal gains whilst minimising the likelihood of injury aggravation. Combining Clinical Pilates with Physiotherapy enables patients to ‘take control’ of their injury using exercise.
At Gen Health, we are excited to introduce Hamilton to the world of Clinical Pilates. Initial assessments are undertaken with one of our friendly Physiotherapists, with the option of joining in group therapy sessions once a specialised program has been prescribed.
