What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates has been modified by physiotherapists and called Clinical Pilates. It marries the original principles of the Pilates technique and the latest research into the importance of activating core muscles to rehabilitate, prevent injuries and fitness. Clinical Pilates is the perfect complement to physiotherapy.
At PHYSIOCLINIC, our physiotherapists understand your pain conditions and are the ideal practitioners to guide you through safe gentle restorative exercise programs using the Pilates principles.

Pre and Post Natal
Pregnancy can produce strain on muscles and joints especially those of the lower back and pelvis. Hormones produced, extra weight gain and changing body shape can all contribute to aches and pain. PHYSIOCLINIC’s physiotherapists are experienced in women’s health issues and programs are developed to ensure mother and baby’s safety whilst still targeting pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles. Exercises are designed to keep you strong during pregnancy, prepare the body for labor and the demands of caring for your new baby. Ideally commenced before pregnancy, Pilates can usually be performed up until the last couple of weeks of the pregnancy.
After the birth of your baby, Pilates is the ideal form of low impact exercise to regain pelvic floor and abdominal tone. Strong pelvic floor muscles can help prevent incontinence and prolapses of the bladder, uterus and bowel.
