What is Pilates?

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that seeks to build flexibility, strength, endurance and co-ordination without adding muscle bulk. In addition, pilates increases circulation and helps to sculpt the body and strengthens the body's "core" or "powerhouse" (torso). People who do pilates regularly feel they have better posture, are less prone to injury, and experience better overall health.

What is Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is pilates taught by a musculoskeletal specialist ie a physiotherapist. "Clinical" usually refers to the regime being client-specific and each client will need an assessment prior to commencing. The assessment will allow the therapist to provide and individual programme for each client, depending on their needs and specific injury. Your physiotherapist will tell you when is a good time to start a course of Pilates.

What is Core Stability?

You have heard your physiotherapist talk about core stability and are wondering what this has to do with your injury. Core stability refers to the strength and co-ordination of your deep postural muscles. These muscles are situated close to the spine and around the pelvic girdle. Correct activation of these muscles is key to symptom relief and injury prevention which will be demonstrated by your physiotherapist. When these muscles function well they provide the foundation of support that the rest of the body relies on the move.
