Clinical Pilates is a method of exercise taught by physiotherapists. It involves training and recruiting your postural muscles more efficiently.
At Spring Physio Gym Clinical Pilates is taught 1:1 or in small classes, and involves floor and mat exercises. You commence with two 1:1 sessions. The first session involves your assessment, and the second constitutes a program design. Your physiotherapist will take you through the basics of core stability and begin to build your program with you, in the gym. Please wear comfortable clothing to these sessions.
Clinical Pilates is a modification of the Pilates Method developed by Joseph Pilates. It involves focusing on coordination of control and recruitment of core muscles, movement of the limbs and breathing control. It involves exercises that range from moving the whole body to stabilizing most of the body and carefully controlling the movement of a single joint.
Pilates can involve mat exercise (no equipment required) or equipment based exercise (reformer bed, trapeze table, barrel).
All the equipment utilises springs to provide resistance to movement or challenges to control. This stimulation of the body moving against springs provides sensory stimulation to help facilitate movement and provide challenge to control.
Clinical Pilates varies from traditional Pilates because it is taught by physiotherapists. As physiotherapists we can utilise the method and carefully select from the traditional exercises to create modifications and tailor the exercise to meet your needs. People with injury can greatly benefit from this exercise without risk of injury associated with movements that are unsafe.
