At Newquay Physiotherapy we offer Clinical Pilates. This is a form of exercise which targets and strengthens the muscles of the abdomen, spine and major joints to enhance core stability and muscular balance. It is a low impact form of exercise and is suitable for a wide range of people.
Pilates can be used to treat, manage and prevent a wide range of conditions including lower and upper back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and scapula stability. However, even if you have no pain at all it can benefit everybody by improving mobility, strength, flexibility and function. Improving your core strength is important as your core muscles help to stabilise you in every movement you make.
Clinical Pilates is great for:
- Building core strength
- Treating muscle imbalances
- Reducing musculoskeletal pain
- Preventing injury
- Improving muscle tone and flexibility
- Improving balance and posture
- Relieving stress and tension
- Promoting a sense of well-being
- Pre and post natal exercise
At Newquay Physiotherapy we are trained in APPI Pilates, the leading provider of Clinical Pilates training for physiotherapists and other qualified health professionals. As a result, this means that all of the classes we deliver are based on strong physiotherapy knowledge and understanding of any injuries or problems you may have. Thus, this ensures that the exercises you perform are suitable for you.
During Pilates, you will be shown the exact modification of each exercise with constant analysis of your technique. Consequently, this helps to ensure you are targeting the correct muscles so that each movement is safe and effective for you. As your ability changes, the exercises taught will be progressed so as to challenge you further.
We offer Clinical Pilates classes within a small group of up to eight people. Small classes help to ensure that you receive individual attention and guidance throughout each class. However, if you would prefer a more personal approach we also offer one-to-one Clinical Pilates classes.
