What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates was a form of exercise introduced in the 1920s by a physical trainer by the name of Joseph Pilates as a way to help injured athletes and dancers safely return to normal function and to maintain their fitness. Since then, Pilates has been adapted to suit people in the general community and at all levels of fitness.
Pilates involves moving your body through precise ranges of motion. Pilates lengthens and stretches major muscle groups in your body that will challenge your bodies strength and coordination. Each exercise has a prescribed placement, rhythm and breathing pattern.
The Pilates method at Refine Physiotherapy & Pilates consists of a variety of exercise sequences that are performed in low repetitions, usually up to 10 times, over a session of 30 to 90 minutes. Specialised equipment like Reformer Machines are used to assist in providing resistance for exercises, providing the most effective clinical and reformers Pilates for Bowen Hills and New Farm.
