Pilates is well known in exercise studios and village halls throughout the country. It is a form of exercise that looks at improving your posture and core stability, that is, increasing the strength of your back, stomach and pelvic floor muscles.
It is extremely good for helping people with back and neck pain.
One of our physiotherapists is trained in the APPI Pilates techniques that have been developed by physiotherapists from the traditional Pilates moves to provide a more clinical approach to using the exercises for people with musculoskeletal problems.
Pilates can be provided on a one-to-one or small group basis at the Balance Health Club Clinic.
Some of our participants have given the following feedback:
Pilates is an excellent way to exercise before and after you have your baby. Alison is now able to offer 1-2-1 sessions for ante and post natal ladies to help you stay fit during pregnancy and regain your fitness after. It is also useful for ladies with pelvic girdle pain.
