Clinical Pilates and personal training taught by our professional team of specialists can assist in muscle recovery, aid in injury healing, build strength and flexibility, reduce bodily pain, and promote wellbeing. Clinical Pilates is an adaptation of traditional Pilates using patient-specific treatment plans following an injury or post-operative surgery to help strengthen core muscles in the abdomen and pelvis, as well as rehabilitate injuries by focusing on the optimal movement of the body. With our dedicated team of specialists, our instructors guide clients on techniques to maximize results while preventing further injuries.
What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is an adaptation of traditional Pilates, that stresses the importance of developing core muscle strength in the abdomen and pelvic muscles. It also focuses on postural education for everyday activities like simply sitting or standing. By focusing on exercises that improve mobility and range of motion, Pilates training allows for optimal movement of the body.
At HelloPhysio, our physiotherapist or trained Pilates specialist work with clients one-on-one to give each person tailored treatments, focusing on strengthening core muscles, rehabilitating post-surgery, or preventing injuries caused by muscular imbalances. Modified forms of exercise techniques and specialized equipment such as reformers, Stahl bars, or Swiss balls are used during training sessions as part of a holistic physiotherapy treatment plan.
Benefits of Pilates after Surgery
Clinical Pilates strongly benefits people with musculoskeletal pain or athletic injuries, Pilates for back pain, or post-operative orthopedic surgeries. Developing a strong core through Pilates encourages speedier recovery following surgery, especially in the early days. After a hip surgery, Pilates strengthens and stretches the muscles around the hip joint to improve recovery time. If following an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery or replacement, Pilates can reinforce the back, core, and hips to restore strength and balance. Or when lower back pain results in spine surgery, Clinical Pilates for back pain is integral in the recovery process, strengthening core muscles in the trunk and spine to decrease load pressure on the discs.
Pilates to Increase Sport Performance
Using Clinical Pilates training can improve overall mobility and athletic performance. Breathing techniques can connect the mind and body, helping you center and focus. Improving your range of motion will mitigate injuries and reduce recovery time. Strengthening core stability improves your body alignment, and creates more fluid joint movements in the hips, trunk, and knees, making for more efficient and controlled movement increasing power.
Addressing The Root Cause of Pain
Whether you are looking to develop deep core muscle strength to decrease lower back pain, enhance breathing techniques to stimulate lymph flow to cleanse toxins, or simply correct poor posture, our Pilates specialists will help you address a plethora of conditions, including but not limited to scoliosis, chronic back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, and impaired movement following a mastectomy.
Our sessions work to identify the root cause of an injury to effectively alleviate it, by stretching and relaxing the muscles, allowing them to naturally move and heal with decreased incidence of recurrent trauma.
Pilates or personal training can be an individual session or a part of your ongoing physiotherapy treatment plan.
