Clinical Pilates is an adaptation of traditional Pilates. It is taught one-on-one by a physiotherapist and may be the perfect therapy to help strengthen core muscles and prevent or rehabilitate injuries.
Clinical Pilates is a modified form of exercise developed by physiotherapists to help with the rehabilitation and prevention of muscular injuries. Specialized equipment such as reformers and trapeze tables can be used along with floor exercises, and exercises performed on a ball. Spring-loaded equipment is a major component of clinical Pilates.
One of the major focuses of this type of therapy is the development of strength in the core muscles – the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Along with this, clinical Pilates focuses on postural education and allowing optimal movement in the body.
A physiotherapist closely supervises a client’s technique and grades the exercise to better prevent injuries.
