What is Clinical Pilates?

Pilates is a method of exercise and movement reeducation based on interpretations of the work and teachings of Josef Pilates. Clinical Pilates is method adapted for therapeutic use by various health and fitness professionals and can be a form of specific exercise. It involves the use of specialised Pilates equipment to sup- port and guide the movement for the exercises. Clinical Pilates can include exercises that focus on trunk flexion, trunk extension, abdominal and back strengthening, and motor control or stabilisation.

Clinical Pilates is where Pilates programs are used as therapeutic exercise incorporating a wide range of Pilates exercises from Matwork to exercises performed on the entire range of Pilates equipment that focus on restoring and maintaining strength, endurance, flexibility, stability and balance. This was the initial premise of the Pilates method as developed by Joseph Pilates. The goal of Pilates is to provide exercises that will improve the bodies function and fitness and all comprehensive Pilates programs will include therapeutic exercises to return an injured client to a fully functioning, pain-free state as well as improve the individuals’ level of fitness.
