As a Physiotherapist, I am particularly interested in clinical care and rehabilitation. As such, I teach a type of Pilates known as Clinical Pilates, and am an Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute certified clinical Pilates matwork instructor. Clinical Pilates is based on the original moves created by Joseph Pilates during the First World War, and has been adapted and made safe for a clinical population. The Pilates method is a mind-body centering technique, which focuses on the strengthening of the deep core muscles that support the spine and pelvis. In addition to this it is used to mobilise the spine, and correct muscle imbalance throughout the body. I often use Pilates as part of my Physiotherapy treatment and as a rehabilitation tool for clients, but this does not mean you need to have an injury to benefit. Pilates has been shown to offer prevention from injury, and helps with maintenance of good posture and body alignment. This means that Pilates is safe for you, whatever your injury, condition, or concern.
