The Pilates method is a system of exercises based on the principles developed by Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920’s. These unique exercises improve spinal stability, flexibility and control. The Pilates/exercises method has been studied by a number of our Physiotherapists and has rapidly become the therapy of choice. Close supervision by our professional Physiotherapists is necessary to prescribe appropriate exercises for each patient.

The exercises require a great deal of focus and concentration on stabilising the body whilst performing whole body movements. This concentrated control not only works the muscles appropriately, but also reinforces the correct neurological pathway for well-coordinated movement.

Clinical Pilates could be used to treat and manage chronic muscular problems such as chronic musculoskeletal back pain.
