Many injuries seen in a physiotherapy clinic stem from problems relating to poor posture, mobility, balance, core strength and flexibility – all of which Pilates can improve.
Pilates builds balanced and coordinated muscles from head to toe while targeting the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine, improving core stability and alignment.
Suitable for everyone regardless of age, gender or experience, the mental and physical benefits of Pilates are far-reaching and transformative including:
- Alleviating general back, neck and shoulder pain
- Improving everyday function
- Increasing overall strength and preventing injury
- Conditioning for sports and athletics
- Relieving stress and engendering a sense of wellbeing
We are dedicated to providing you with the best care. Our physiotherapists and experienced Pilates instructors work alongside each other to help patients recover and improve.
