What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a guided 1-on-1 hands on exercise with a physiotherapist using a reformer, which is a type of exercise equipment. The primary focus is to achieve better core stability, strength, balance, posture and flexibility to help you perform everyday movement.
Clinical pilates has shown to treat a wide variety of injuries. With the help of a physiotherapist, we can retrain core muscles to help prevent future injury and strengthen balance.
What is a Reformer?
A pilates reformer consist of a carriage which includes a flat cushioned platform that moves back and forth along tracks. Springs attached to the platform are to provide resistance. The patients’ body weight provides the rest of the movements. The spring load can be changed to be heavier or lighter, depending on your skill level, allowing your body to slowly build core strength.
