Clinical Pilates

Primary goal of clinical Pilates is to gain the strength, posture, tone and elasticity of the body muscles. Clinical Pilates delves more into medical forms of orthopaedic rehabilitation and physiotherapy using unique apparatus.

In today's world accidents are more common. These may be sports related or any other forms of musculoskeletal type of accidents. Here at Lifeline Physiotherapy, the physio works extensively using his expertise on clinical Pilates.

Clinical Pilates is one of the most recommended physiotherapy exercises following a motor-vehicle accident. Either a whiplash or a spinal injury, physiotherapists at Lifeline Physiotherapy primarily focus on stability of the spine and consolidates its position. Here at our clinic, our therapists restore balance and coordination in the body.

How Clinical Pilates Work
During an accident any part of the joint in the body and its surrounding muscles may be injured or strained. After a period of time, clinical Pilates are generally introduced into the regimen for strengthening of the joints and muscles. Physiotherapists go through a complete examination process of injury and start working on Pilates and concentrate on strength and mobility to the injured area.

Increased libido: Consistent regimen of clinical Pilates also increase smooth flow of blood in the vessels thereby increasing the libido.

Strengthening posture: Clinical Pilates also aides in posture development and appearance. It also decreases the amount of recovery period, especially during the postoperative period of a surgery.

Reformer Pilates Reformer Pilates are more a modern type of Pilates. Machines have taken over these types of Pilates. These have helped physiotherapists to actually work more on patient’s recovery period. Actual Pilates generally work on gravity and ground as resistance using mat.
With reformer Pilates the way you can work on physiotherapy has completely changed. At Lifeline Physiotherapy, we have all the latest equipment to serve our clients.

How It Works While working on machine Pilates the springs provide the resistance. Based on your profile, our physios adjust the amount of resistance needed. For example, if you are working on stretching your legs, to and forth, parallel and perpendicular to the ground, you can adjust the springs. This makes you to ponder on the amount of tension that may be required. Here at Lifeline Physiotherapy we give a complete guidance on the amount resistance, stretch and tension that is required while performing these exercises.

Earlier forms of Pilates were performed on mat by standing and performing stretches or by lying supine and performing the tasks. In contrast reformer Pilates has changed the way to a more advanced form of Pilates. Physiotherapists at Lifeline Physiotherapy provide a complete assessment by taking into consideration orthopaedic and your other physician case studies and work on clinical and reformer Pilates to help reach your goal.

Let's take an example of an orthopaedic patient. A postoperative part of a surgery may be a daunting task. It involves a lot of physiotherapy sessions. Initial sessions with the physiotherapist will be mandatory based on the nature of the injury. But after a few sessions, you may be required to strengthen certain part of your core body muscles or joints. In such a case mat Pilates may not work. With these modern equipment Reformer Pilates allows to focus on a particular section of the body thereby helping in gaining back tone and movement.
