Therapeutic or Clinical Pilates
Therapeutic Pilates is a one to one session and begins with a full Physiotherapist assessment. This includes a full history, then looking at your posture/ joints/dysfunctions to find out what you and your body needs so we can work on exercises that are tailored to your needs.
In particular we are looking at:
- Overall Posture
- Joint movement ranges and Restrictions
- ‘Core’ Strength
- Strength and Flexibility of muscle groups
- Patterns of Movement/ How you use your muscles
- Muscle Imbalances (Over use of some muscle and under use of others)
Sometimes other Physiotherapy techniques are used in a Clinical Pilates 1:1 appointment, such as joint mobilisations, soft tissue massage or dry needling.
You will also be given a little ‘Pilates homework’, as our aims are to get you progressing and feeling better!
It’s a team work approach that empowers you to take charge of your body
