Clinical Pilates: The perfect fitness solution for athletes and active individuals
Clinical Pilates is a highly effective form of exercise that aids in rehabilitation and recovery from sports injuries. It’s a specialised form of Pilates that’s customised to meet your specific needs and is frequently used in our Alexandria and Mascot clinics to help patients recover from a variety of sports injuries.
What’s the difference between regular and clinical Pilates?
While regular Pilates focuses on general fitness and wellness, clinical Pilates is specifically designed for rehabilitation and recovery. These sessions are supervised by one of our fully trained physiotherapists who customises the program to meet your specific injury and goals.
You’ll notice that one key difference between regular and clinical Pilates is the use of specialised equipment, such as the reformer. This equipment provides support and resistance, allowing you to perform exercises that you may be unable to complete on your own. It can help to speed up the rehabilitation process and improve your overall outcomes.
What are the benefits of clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates has numerous benefits for sports injury rehabilitation. Firstly, it can help reduce pain and inflammation by improving circulation and mobility. It can help improve strength and flexibility, which in turn, helps to prevent further injury and improve overall fitness. It can improve balance and coordination, which can be especially important for those recovering from injuries that affect their motor skills.
It can also improve mental well-being, reduce stress and improve overall relaxation. This can be especially important for those recovering from sports injuries, as it can help to reduce anxiety and promote a positive mindset.
