Pilates is a form of exercise that improves core strength, flexibility, posture, injury prevention and also mental awareness. The Malvern East Physiotherapy team offers Clinical Pilates with an individually tailored and goal-orientated approach.
Clinical Pilates is designed to increase muscle strength and flexibility in order to correct muscle imbalances, restore alignment, while also helping to improve posture. Joints are stabilised by the smaller, deeper muscles that sit closest to them. These muscles are often weakened by lifestyle factors such as sitting for prolonged periods or leaning over a computer. This can result in muscle imbalances between the deep and superficial muscles, which can lead to further problems. Clinical Pilates works to strengthen these muscles, which in return improves posture and helps to prevent further injuries.
We currently have a very extensive Clinical Pilates timetable, offering more than 30 sessions per week, which is more than most gyms. Sessions are available individually or in small groups up to 4 people, and we have classes specifically for adolescents and men – Manlates. All of our sessions are run by our qualified and highly trained physiotherapists.
