As an athlete it is essential to have a strong core to provide a stable base of support from which to move your arms and legs. Pilates is a form of body conditioning developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1930’s.
Physiotherapists developed the Clinical Pilates concept in the 1990’s using the original theories combining with expert knowledge of injury diagnosis, management and prevention. The focus is on strengthening the body’s core muscles around the abdomen, lower back, pelvic and scapular regions, therefore enabling the body to move efficiently and thereby enhancing performance.
Clinical Pilates is a safe way to strengthen core muscles and is designed to help you recover from injuries and prevent further musculoskeletal problems from developing. Pilates programmes are designed to enhance the performance ability of all active individuals whether novice or elite.
Each programme will be tailored to one’s specific sport needs therefore enhancing their functional stability.
