What is Clinical Pilates?

It focuses on core strength, posture, balance, flexibility and control to help with the recovery of sprains and strains, muscle and joint injuries and rehabilitation after surgery.

The aim of Clinical Pilates is to learn how to activate specific muscles and promote better quality movement to achieve long term recovery. Our physiotherapists, trained in Clinical Pilates Como, provide a tailored program to suit each individual. As everyone knows, each person’s condition is different and targeting specific muscles depends on the needs of the patient. A great physiotherapist will understand exactly what your body needs to recover safely, and will design a suitable program accordingly.
The Difference Between Pilates and Clinical Pilates
General or Non-Clinical Pilates isn’t tailored to individual needs. As the name suggests, it is general in nature generally as a group exercise form. It may not be beneficial or suitable for injury management, rehabilitation and recovery. Clinical Pilates is under the supervision of a suitably trained physiotherapist and has a much more personalised approach. Exercises are tailored specifically to individual needs based on a thorough assessment of the patients musculoskeletal condition. Your program can be adapted based on your injury and level of ability, as determined by your physiotherapist.
The Benefits of Clinical Pilates
Clinical Pilates can benefit most patients with chronic pain or those recovering from injuries and surgery. Unlike general or non-clinical Pilates which may not be appropriate for certain injuries, Clinical Pilates is uniquely tailored to the individual. When performing exercises that aren’t appropriate for a specific condition there is a risk of further injury so if someone is recovery from an injury on has persistent pain we recommend the additional level of qualification and experience that comes with a physiotherapist trained in clinical pilates.
