Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century in Germany. Clinical Pilates is often used in conjunction with Physiotherapy as a means of treating a variety of injuries, particularly those of the neck and back. This is based on literature that demonstrates strong evidence to support the use of therapeutic exercise in the management of patients with injuries, particularly low back pain. Recent research advocates the retraining of the deep stabilizing muscles for patients with low back pain. Clinical Pilates in Victoria BC at Shelbourne Physiotherapy focuses on the retraining and recruitment of these stabilizing muscles (core stability) as well as improving posture, strength and flexibility. Clinical Pilates is exercise that strengthens the small postural muscles that support our joints, reducing pain and increasing flexibility.

Clinical Pilates VictoriaDeveloped by medically trained Physiotherapists, Clinical Pilates has pioneered the link between recent spinal stability research and the original work of Joseph Pilates and his contemporaries. The Pilates exercises work with spring loaded equipment rather than free weights. The advantage is that you work on muscle control rather than strength with the exercises working muscle groups in patterns that are functional. The result is a body that works more efficiently. Many athletes are now using Pilates to focus on muscle control work as compared to traditional strengthening programs due to the epidemic of injuries that are occurring.

Clinical Pilates (as distinct to generic Pilates classes) identifies this key issue by applying carefully selected exercises to patients with specific injuries. This ensures optimal gains whilst minimizing the likelihood of injury aggravation. If you are interested in commencing Clinical Pilates for your injury, it is essential to have a review with your Shelbourne Physiotherapist to assess the suitability of a core stability program for you.
