What is Clinical Pilates

Pilates is named after its creator, Joseph Pilates.  It is an exercise programme that works the whole body by co-ordinating the deep postural muscles with the muscles of the upper and lower body.  Pilates is becoming more widely recognised in the medical world as a valuable method of injury prevention and rehabilitation. 

Here at Woodthorpe Hospital the Pilates classes are led by a Chartered Physiotherapist who has undergone specific training. They offer the class participants an exercise programme that focuses on correct movement patterns, core stability and increased postural awareness.
