Clinical Physiotherapy Group

What is Clinical Physiotherapy?

A low impact, patient specific form of exercise that is used by physiotherapists to help with the rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, particularly back pain. Specialised equipment may be used along with floor exercises and exercises performed on a ball. One of the major focuses of this type of therapy is the development of strength and control in the deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Clinical Physiotherapy focuses on postural education and allowing optimal movement in the body.

How does Clinical Physiotherapy Differ from Standard Pilates?

Participants in Clinical Physiotherapy are individually assessed and then given exercises that specifically target their problem areas whilst closely supervised to ensure maximum benefit and prevention of injuries.

Benefits of Clinical Physiotherapy

Some general benefits of Clinical Physiotherapy include:

  • improved core stabilisation
  • improved posture and flexibility
  • less likelihood of injury
  • overall body toning
  • the correction of poor mechanics that underlie injuries
  • better control over breathing
  • firmer and flatter stomach muscles
