What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise rehabilitation that combines Physiotherapy and Pilates in a clinical setting.
Our Certified Stott Pilates instructor is also a Registered Physiotherapist with 10 years of experience in working with clients with neurological disorders such as stroke, acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
Clinical Pilates is unique at Neuromotion because both your assessment and instruction will be carried out by a Registered Physiotherapist.
Clinical Pilates has a strong emphasis on teaching you how to recruit and use your core stabilising muscles and educating you about correct spinal posture as well as working on any specific muscles which are weak or imbalanced.
Can I do Clinical Pilates if I have a neurological disorder?
Of course! Here at Neuromotion we believe that all exercise systems should be accessible to you regardless of your disability. Exercises will be adapted to each client’s individual needs.
