- Shoulder/rotator cuff pain and arm pain.
What we use clinical pilates for:
- Strengthening the ‘core’ which includes the deep stomach muscles, deep back extensors and the gluteal stabilisers. A strong ‘core’ supports the spine to decrease the chance of straining the back muscles or discs resulting in back pain. This is important in rehabilitating a back injury as well as preventing a back injury from occurring in the first place. A stable core creates a solid foundation for the remaining joints in the body to move on, therefore retraining the core musculature is also a vital aspect in rehabilitation of peripheral joint injuries.
- Rehabilitation of sporting injuries including ankle sprains, muscular strains and post-operatively or non-operatively managed ACL injuries for example. The program will be tailored to incorporate the specific movement patterns of your sport so that you can return to full pre-injury function.
- Managing pain associated with arthritis and osteoporosis and improving bone density through weight-bearing exercise.
