Clinical Pilates can benefit a range of conditions including low back pain, upper back and neck pain, sporting injuries, pre and post natal, post surgery – spinal, shoulder, knee, hip, fibromyalgia and postural conditions, improved muscle tone and flexibility. One particular group of people who benefit are people who suffer chronic recurring low back pain, who may have tried many different treatment interventions.

You can participate in Clinical Pilates by individual sessions or progress to a group session. Group sessions involve 3-4 people. It incorporates the use of floor based exercises and use of specific spring resistance equipment such as the reformer and trapeze table.
