Clinical Pilates is a modification of the traditional Pilates method and has been developed by physiotherapists to make the exercises more suitable for patients with back and neck pain and those recovering from injury or surgery.
Modern reliance on computers requires us to remain seated for long periods, often contributing to poor posture, lower back pain and repetitive strain injuries. Pilates is excellent for encouraging better postural awareness and releasing tension throughout the body.
Regular Pilates exercise can also alleviate conditions such as asthma, tension headaches, depression, seasonal affective disorders and everyday stress. It has been proven to promote healthy cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive systems and to lower blood pressure.
If you are suffering from an acute problem, we recommend you see your GP or physiotherapist prior to beginning an exercise programme. We would then be happy to work with your specialist in addressing the underlying cause.
Pilates provides a wonderful exercise for older clients as they are especially effective at relieving back pain, joint stiffness, arthritis and tension throughout the body. The client can work out in a quiet and calming environment and leave the session feeling relaxed and energised.
