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.

The two basic forms of Pilates are:

  • Mat-based Pilates – this is a series of exercises performed on the floor using gravity and your own body weight to provide resistance. The main aim is to condition the deeper, supporting muscles of your body to improve posture, balance and coordination
  • Equipment-based Pilates – this includes specific equipment that works against spring-loaded resistance, including the ‘reformer’, which is a moveable carriage that you push and pull along its tracks. Some forms of Pilates include weights (such as dumbbells) and other types of small equipment that offer resistance to the muscles.

Our emphasis is on meeting your health objectives. Healthplus Clinical Pilates starts with a one to one assessment with our expert Physiotherapy Clinical Pilates Instructor to determine your individual needs and requirements. In this initial session you will also be taught the pre-pilates exercises for the class and establish a personal program of strengthening and stretching tailored to meet your needs. Once this has been established we can offer two options:

  • One to One sessions
  • Group session with a maximum of 4 participants

Occassionally joining a group in a class setting can be daunting and confusing if you have never tried Clinical Pilates before, so clinical one-to-one Pilates sessions here at Healthplus Clinics can be an ideal way of becoming familiar with the Pilates concept before joining a class or a group.

The Physiotherapy Clinical Pilates team has a wealth of experience in client care and they are here to support you through your rehabilitation. They are all HCPC registered and members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists. The clinic and our team of expert Physiotherapists are recognised and registered with all major health insurance companies.

The use of Clinical Pilates to treat not only lower back pain but all other type of injuries is becoming increasingly common among physiotherapists. The team is readily available to discuss your personal situation either over the phone or here at the clinic in a free of charge 10 minute consultation.
