Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS CLINICAL PILATES?
There are a range of Pilates styles and levels of training. Our Pilates method is developed, and delivered, by Physiotherapists.
This difference is key as a physiotherapist has an in-depth knowledge of injury, pathology, body function and movement patterns.
Our Pilates classes are as safe for all as they are challenging and effective. Move Physio Pilates is here to help you to become a stronger, fitter and pain-free.
The first step is to undertake a Pilates assessment, and we can help guide you on what package is best for you. See below for more information.
INITIAL ONE-TO-ONE ASSESSMENT?
Initially, you will need to have a one-to-one assessment with the instructor so that they can understand more about you and to teach you the basics of Pilates and what will be required in a session. This will include:
- How to find your “neutral spine”.
- Identifying understand what cues help you to engage your core (these are different from person to person).
- Complete the basic exercises to help you integrate into a class environment with ease.
After this, your instructor will guide you to which option below is most suitable for you.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CLINICAL PILATES?
It helps to prevent injury
Clinical Pilates is excellent for injury prevention, whether you want to prevent injuries that can occur during daily activities or in high-impact sports. The small classes allow us to adapt the exercises to suit everyone. The idea is to heighten your awareness of your own body – promoting strength and flexibility using the correct muscles for the job.
It helps to compliment your current activities
Clinical Pilates should be seen as a complimentary exercise to your exercise or cross training/recovery programme. Exercises will be modified to suit your personal circumstances so you don’t need to worry that you’ll aggravate your injury by taking part. In fact, the research shows that it’s a great exercise for people with recurrent injuries or niggles.
