5 Health Benefits of Clinical Pilates
Clinical Pilates is a great way to build strength and flexibility; it’s similar to Pilates, but is delivered by qualified teachers who have undertaken extensive training. This means they have an in-depth understanding of the musculoskeletal system and how to support it, so whether you’re dealing with an injury or working towards a specific movement goal, they’ll take you through a Clinical Pilates session tailored specifically to your needs.
We offer one-to-one Clinical Pilates sessions here in Camden with our experienced Pilates teacher Rebecca Faith Wield. Rebecca has been teaching Clinical Pilates for over 17 years, and takes a holistic approach to her sessions, with a particular interest in the effect of stress on the mind-body. She also has a specialist certificate in Pre/Post-Natal Pilates.
Clinical Pilates is suitable for anyone, and there are lots of benefits: we’ve put together a list of just five of them here.
If you’re looking to build strength in a low-impact way, Clinical Pilates is a great place to start. You’ll build strength at the same time as increasing flexibility and balance, taking the whole body’s health into account. It’ll also help you look more toned, fit and strong, if that’s your goal.
Just like building strength, flexibility is really important to your health and wellbeing. A good level of flexibility will help prevent injuries and improve your performance in other sports. In a Clinical Pilates session you’ll increase flexibility gradually, while also building strength around the joints to ensure stability as well as flexibility.
Whether you play a sport, or you’d just like to improve your resilience and ensure you live a long, healthy life, good balance is essential. Clinical Pilates is a great way to build better balance, while also working on strength and flexibility. Good balance can help prevent injuries, protect against falls (particularly in older patients) and improve performance in all kinds of sports and hobbies.
Clinical Pilates is great for injury rehabilitation; during your sessions you benefit from one-on-one attention from a qualified teacher with an extensive knowledge of the musculoskeletal system. Whether you’re dealing with an old injury or just beginning your rehabilitation journey, your instructor will guide you through exercises tailored to your injury needs.
Great for posture
Improving your posture has knock-on effects on your overall health: it’s a great way to avoid injury, putting strain on other areas of your body, and even improves digestion. We often see patients with postural issues due to work, either from sitting at a desk all day or working a physical job that’s hard on the body. Your Clinical Pilates instructor will work with you to improve your posture and build strength and flexibility to ensure the improvements are maintained long-term.
