Pilates is a system of specific exercises with the intention of facilitating increased control of the core stability muscles as well as improving overall body awareness, movement quality and strength. Exercises were originally developed by Joseph Pilates over 50 years ago and are performed on a Reformer, chair or mat.
The benefits of Pilates in rehabilitation of various injuries has long been recognized in the physiotherapy clinics of Australia and New Zealand and is now beginning to be recognized and integrated into our Canadian systems of care as well.
Clinical Pilates integrates the principles of Pilates with the expertise of a detailed assessment with a Registered Physiotherapist, to ensure that an active rehabilitation program can be developed using only exercises specific to the needs of the client, their injury and stage of healing.
Our Clinical Pilates programs begin with an assessment by a Clinical Pilates-trained Physiotherapist. Your physiotherapist will complete a thorough assessment of your issue and develop a program specific to your needs.
All sessions are carried out in our Pilates studio and may incorporate exercises on our clinical reformer, Wunda chair, cadillac or mat.
These sessions are covered by extended medical health plans under Physiotherapy.
