Rehab-Clinical Pilates

Rehabilitation-Clinical Pilates

Experienced and certified STOTT PILATES instructors at Pilatique evaluates and treats a range of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal disorders and injuries, not just for athletes, but also for any person who wants to return to physical activity as quickly and safely as possible.

Using a wide range of techniques such as Rehab-Clinical Pilates, supervised exercise regimes, stretching, our practitioners design rehabilitation pilates programs to meet the needs of each individual client. Our aim is to restore full range of movement to the injured area to return each client to their normal daily routine whilst also preventing further injury.

Rehab-Clinical Pilates focuses on strengthening the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine to improve overall core stability and posture. This enables more balanced, controlled and comfortable whole body movement. Rehab-Clinical Pilates utilises equipment including STOTT PILATES Reformers and the Cadillac-Trapeze Table, which use spring resistance, as well as balance equipment and foam rollers. This allows a whole body workout to be achieved.

*Although Pilates can be extremely beneficial for patients with certain injuries it needs to be specific to the individual and not used as a generic tool for everyone. Rehab-Clinical Pilates (as distinct to generic Pilates classes) identifies this key issue by applying carefully selected exercises to patients with specific injuries. This ensures optimal gains whilst minimizing the likelihood of injury aggravation. If you are interested in commencing Pilates for your injury, it is essential to have a review with a qualified pilates instructor to assess the suitability of the program for you.*
