Our clinical classes are often used to help treat a variety of injuries and conditions as well as pregnant (prenatal) and postnatal women.

Benefits of Clinical Pilates in Adelaide

If you’ve ever suffered an injury, particularly one that required surgery or a lengthy recovery process, then you know how hard it can be to get your body back to an optimal state of functioning. Here are some of the benefits of clinical Pilates for back pain or other conditions or injuries.

  • Injury prevention: Clinical Pilates can not only help you recover from an injury, but it can also help prevent future injuries. That’s because people who have poor posture or muscular imbalances or lack muscular support are more vulnerable to injuries. Clinical Pilates can address these issues and help make you more resistant to getting hurt.
  • Pain reduction: If you are dealing with chronic neck or back pain, clinical Pilates can target these areas and strengthen any weak muscles that may be contributing to the problem. It can also relieve tension through stretching in areas that are tight and sore.
  • Pregnancy and childbirth preparation: Clinical Pilates is excellent for women who are planning to have babies. When you are pregnant, your body has specific limitations and needs regarding physical activity. Prenatal programming in our clinical Pilates classes can provide a safe and effective workout designed to help you stay healthy and active while keeping yourself and your baby safe.

Tips for Getting More Value Out of Clinical Pilates Classes

Before you try your first Pilates class, you should know that most people who try it get hooked. Pilates can make you feel stronger, lighter, healthier, taller, and more balanced – a feeling you’ll want to maintain. Here are some tips for getting the most value out of your clinical Pilates classes.

  • Dress the part: Form-fitting (but comfortable) clothing will help you move more freely and also allow your instructor to see how your body moves and offer corrections. You’ll also need a good pair of grip socks, which we sell at the studio.
    After your introduction session try a few private classes first: If possible, consider taking a few private lessons before joining a group class. This privacy offers the best way to learn the movement and ensure that you’re using proper form, and that your instructor gets to know you and your limitations. If private classes aren’t an option, small group classes are also great for learning.
    Don’t be afraid to ask for modifications: Almost all Pilates movements (and all exercises, for that matter) can be modified to suit beginners or people with injuries. If a particular exercise hurts or is too difficult, tell your instructor. Also, ask if you have a question about how to perform a movement, what a word means, or anything else.
