Clinical Pilates

Effective Pilates Solutions for All

Pilates is a highly effective exercise regimen that helps you use muscles in the correct way to improve spinal stability and maintain good posture. Whether you are a beginner or an elite athlete, Pilates can help you condition and train your muscles towards specific goals. For athletes, this may take the form of sport specific conditioning of muscle groups used in your chosen sport. For others, Pilates restores muscle tone and control, which not only assists recovery from injury but is also a challenging and dynamic alternative to gym strengthening.
            
Pilates as a Therapeutic Solution
Clinical Pilates is considered a very effective therapeutic exercise technique used in conjunction with physiotherapy concepts to aid rehabilitation.  It is commonly used for:

  • Treatment of Neck and Lower Back injuries (acute and chronic)
  • Athletes wanting to improve strength and control
  • Postural correction
  • General strengthening and conditioning
  • Rehabilitation for a wide range of injuries
  • Post Pregnancy Conditioning

At Viaduct Physiotherapy, our highly skilled physiotherapists will determine what clinical Pilates regimen will be of most benefit to you. Since this is done with particular care to the patient’s injury, the exercise is highly focused and yields results in a relatively short time.

Various Forms of Clinical Pilates
Clinical Pilates may take many forms, each with its own unique benefits. Pilates may involve floor exercises, the use of reformer machines or resistance bands. These techniques will be discussed with you by our physiotherapists who will also take your preferences into consideration when creating your program.
