What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a method of specific exercise which has evolved from traditional Pilates. It has the addition of Physiotherapy input and evidence based research as a rehabilitation tool for injury management and performance enhancement. Clinical Pilates focuses on training the body’s deep stabilising muscles – the ‘core’.
