Clinical Pilates has been developed specifically as a treatment tool for Physiotherapists to assist in a client’s rehabilitation. It is the result of specific scientific research making it evidence based. It is a modification of the traditional Pilates method that required refinement to improve safety and to emphasise the components valid in stability training and injury diagnosis and management.
The rehabilitation programme incorporates the work of stabilisation training, neural mobilisation, load effects on pathology and injuries, injury provocation, as well as spinal and peripheral biomechanics, to bring about long term results. It provides a logical progression from static stabilisation onto higher level functional dynamic stabilisation.
Clinical Pilates has been proven to help many types of injuries including; lower back pain, anterior knee pain and overuse running injuries.
