About Clinical Pilates

Pilates is a series of exercises that are performed in a way to increase core strength and stability, while also increasing circulation and flexibility.

Instructors are specifically trained to effectively modify the exercises for particular body types, postural issues and patient conditions.

Some of the benefits of Richmond Physiotherapy Clinic Clinical Pilates are:

  • Improved posture & body awareness
  • Increased core stability & strength
  • Decreased pain, tension & stress
  • Injury prevention
  • Increased circulation & flexibility
  • Longer & leaner muscles
  • Improved neuro-muscular coordination
  • Increased function and energy
  • Enhanced athletic performance

When back and joint pain occur, the core muscular system alters its activation pattern. This may result in poor joint position and lead to an increase in pain. The core trunk stability muscles (Transversus Abdominus and Lumbar Multifidis) in combination with the hip muscles are responsible for supporting the spine and the surrounding joints.

The use of pressure biofeedback and specific exercises helps to isolate your core muscles and regain correct activation. This allows better movement and less pain.


If the physiotherapist managing your problem believes pilates may be of benefit, it is often included in our normal treatment regime, thus charged as normal physiotherapy rates.
