Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, movement control, strength, flexibility and breathing. At the Hampton clinic it is used in conjunction with Osteopathy as a means of treating a variety of injuries.
Clinical Pilates may make a difference for you if you suffer from:
- Back or neck pain
- Hip, Knee, Ankle, Elbow or Shoulder pain
- Chronic or re-occurring injuries
- Post-surgery instability issues
Recent literature provides strong evidence to support the use of therapeutic exercise in the management of patients with injuries, in particular lower back pain. Clinical Pilates focuses on the retraining and recruitment of the deep stabilising (core muscles) as well as improving posture, strength and flexibility.
Clinical Pilates differs from generic Pilates as it is highly specific to the needs of each individual and identifies the key issues by applying carefully selected exercises to patients with specific injuries. This ensures optimal gains whilst minimising the risk of injury aggravation.
