Clinical Pilates is an important part of our physiotherapy treatment. Most of the pain developed in our body comes from postural dysfunction or faulty movement patterns. Even though you go for a physiotherapy treatment, sometimes the results just do not last long. This is because we only alleviate the symptoms but without actually treating the root cause of the injuries. With prolonged poor sitting and standing postures, our deep “core” and abdominal muscles become dysfunctional and we begin to overload the spine.
We bring together the art and science of movement to help you restore postural alignment, flexibility, and core stability to maintain a long-term pain free body
Clinical Pilates is the combination of physiotherapy treatments and rehabilitative Pilates exercises. At Core Fitness, we integrate manual therapies with neuromuscular re-training using rehabilitative Pilates techniques. Neuromuscular re-training is particularly useful in restoring normal patterns of movement in injured people. This combined approach empowers clients to take charge of their own recovery and restore their overall fitness and well-being.
Clinical Pilates treats symptoms, relieves pain, and identifies and addresses contributing factors and underlying causes of musculoskeletal conditions. Our physiotherapists have the ability to effectively assess a presenting musculoskeletal condition, identify its causes/contributing factors and to develop a holistic plan of management that will provide an effective result.
