Pre And Post Natal

Clinical Pilates can help the body cope with the stress of pregnancy. It helps to build up strength in the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, reducing pain and the risk of abdominal muscle separation.

Chronic Back Or Neck Pain

For those suffering from chronic back and neck pain, Clinical Pilates can help to reduce stiffness and pain. This is achieved by strengthening the surrounding muscles and improving posture which takes pressure off the spine.

Posture And Core Strength

Many aches or pains are due to poor posture and postural control. Clinical Pilates can help in strengthening and lengthening muscles and improving postural habits in everyday life. Clinical Pilates also improves strength through the mid-section which helps with posture and takes stress off the ligaments and joints of the spine, reducing the risks of injury.

Injury Recovery

Clinical Pilates is ideal for rehabilitation from an injury. Under the supervision and guidance of a qualified physiotherapist, Clinical Pilates can help to strengthen muscles while performing safe exercises to assist with recovery and prevent further injury.
