Pilates & Core Stability
Pilates is a form of exercise suitable to all levels of patients and athletes. It can improve overall body strength, proprioception, performance, lower back pain and flexibility. It focuses on maintaining a neutral spine, which leads to an improved posture. Should you suffer with spinal fatigue, low grade aches and pains or even acute bouts of neck and back pain, Pilates has been shown to be very beneficial in all these areas.
It can be made as easy or as difficult as the patient requires, even within a class, there are many progressions of each exercise. Pilate’s exercises can be practiced in different positions depending on the patient’s requirements and abilities e.g. gym ball seated exercises for a desk bound worker, standing exercises for athletes etc.
