What is Pilates?

Pilates is an exercise class that uses body weight exercises and specific equipment to strengthen the main core muscles, improve co-ordination, improve body awareness and increase flexibility. Core weakness (abdominals, low back and glutes) can cause many issues that may result in pain throughout your body. Using our Pilates classes to strengthen these muscles can help you recover from injury and can also be useful in preventing future injury.

Who is Pilates suitable for?

Pilates is suitable for everyone no matter what age or fitness level. At Somerton Physiotherapy Clinic we offer beginner, intermediate and advanced level Pilates classes. Each class is led by a chartered physiotherapist who will have a depth of knowledge regarding any injuries you have and will be able to adapt classes to suit your needs. In addition, if you are receiving treatment with us we will be able to advise which level is most suitable for you to start at. This will mean you won’t find classes too easy or find yourself out of your depth at our Pilates classes.

What conditions is Pilates suitable for?

Pilates can help improve conditions such as:

  • Low back pain
  • Hip and Knee injuries
  • Sciatic pain
  • Neck discomfort
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Pelvic dysfunction
  • Post-pregnancy injuries/pain
  • Chronic sports injuries involving hips, groins and hamstrings.
