What are the Benefits of Clinical Pilates run by a Physio?

Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise which focuses on the rehabilitation and optimisation of the body, mind and soul. Below are just some of the main benefits of attending a Clinical Pilates class which is instructed by a qualified physiotherapist:


Extensively trained instructors

Because Clinical Pilates is run by a trained physiotherapist, your instructor will have a thorough and technical understanding of how your body works. As a result, they can help you to gain increased insight into what the best exercises are in order to achieve the best and most specific results possible from your Pilates classes.

Promotes healing

Clinical Pilates can be an excellent way to promote healing from an injury or illness and is used by many as a form of rehabilitation. These kinds of classes can be an effective way to regain muscle balances, posture and any range of movement that you may have lost during an illness or injury.

Prevents re-injury

If you have sustained an injury from sports or physical activity, clinical pilates is one of the best steps you can take towards recovery without sustaining a new injury or making your existing injury worse. Clinical Pilates can even include sport-specific exercises which will help you to return to your sport or level of physical ability. It can even enhance your performance through improved muscle control

Improve mobility

Clinical Pilates will help you to improve your mobility and range of movement as well as helping you to maintain your body’s functionality as you become older.

Personalised instruction

A Clinical Pilates instructor will be able to provide you with tailor-made solutions based on your specific goals, injury or illness. Their in-depth knowledge of the body and the ways in which it becomes affected by different circumstances will allow your instructor to conduct a much more holistic class and teach you the exercises that are most effective for your personal situation. What’s more, your instructor may be able to give you advice on further exercise or treatment plans that would be beneficial for you.
