All about Clinical Pilates and its usage


Clinical Pilates is a configuration of physical exercise that impacts the pose, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. These days, it is frequently used in conjunction with physiotherapy as a way of treating a variety of injuries, especially those of the neck and back.

This is based on literature that reveals strong proof to keep up the use of therapeutic exertion in the care of patients with injuries, especially low back pain. The latest research recommends the reteaching of the equalized muscles for patients with low back pain. Clinical Pilates emphasizes the reteaching and recruitment of these sustaining muscles (core stability) in addition to improving posture, strength, and flexibility.

Though Pilates is extremely beneficial for patients with certain injuries, it needs to be used specifically for the individual and not used as a generic tool for everybody. It (as distinct from generic Pilates classes) identifies and treats issues by applying carefully selected exercises to patients with particular injuries. This ensures maximum gains while minimizing the likelihood of injury making worse. If it is desirable in commencing Pilates for any injury, it is essential to have an opinion of a physiotherapist to assess the suitability of a core stability program for the patient.


The benefits obtained from performing Clinical Pilates exercises include:

  • Increased muscular power and elasticity.
  • To avoid injuries.
  • Improved position and support.
  • Improved breathing control
  •  Exercises to improve a person’s speech, language, and communication after a brain injury with the restoration of normal movement.
  • To have better muscular control i.e the muscles that hold internal organs in place and keep the body stable during movement.
