Description

Clinical Pilates is a goal directed rehabilitation program taught by a physiotherapist. The individual client is assessed, and key issues and dysfunctional patterns are identified. Exercises can be carefully applied to clients with their specific injuries in mind.

With clinical Pilates, you get the best of both worlds with a physiotherapist who is trained in evaluating and treating injuries as well as using state of the art equipment such as the Reformer to provide you with a progressive, safe, yet challenging and functional exercise program.

Clinical Pilates Focuses On

Pilates offers an excellent framework for rehabilitation from injury and moves you forward, getting you the most prepared to get you back out there and live life the way you want.

The Goal of Physiotherapy

The goal of physiotherapy treatment is to optimize the ability to participate in an active, pain free lifestyle.  

We recognize the need to explore new ways of keeping exercise fun and exciting!  Clinical Pilates enhances the physiotherapy experience using various Pilates equipment, such as the Reformer, to provide a unique tool to treat postural dysfunction, asymmetry and pain.

Patients will see the benefits of Clinical Pilates in restoring functional movement patterns, posture, and stabilization throughout the body. It will also improve body awareness, breathing patterns and motor control.

Where Clinical Pilates Benefits

  • Osteoporosis
  • Poor motor control
  • Athletes of any calibre
  • Scoliosis
  • Everyone with scoliosis is recommended to keep an active lifestyle
  • Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty.
  • Sometimes the curve in the spine is quite mild.  Sometimes the curve is very dramatic and can potentially create pressure on the internal organs.
  • In these cases surgery and/or bracing is often required, which our trained physiotherapists with specific experience working with patients with scoliosis can help initiate or refer as needed.
