Kaya Health Clubs is proud to offer Clinical Pilates as part of our range of holistic health services. Many of us live with small aches and pains, and we may not even be aware of them or how they’re affecting our lifestyle. Clinical Pilates is a tried and true method of healing the body with a controlled system of safe exercises, customised and prescribed to your unique needs. Check out the blog below to find out more!
What Is Clinical Pilates?
KĀYA Clinical Pilates uses a gentle methodology of muscle conditioning and flexibility to treat a range of injuries and conditions. Using remedial movement, our expert practitioners facilitate healing and health restoration, which easily complements other courses of therapeutic exercise to help treat conditions from chronic pain to fatigue and hypermobility. Clinical Pilates will use either the mat or reformer, among other small adjustments, to safely manoeuvre the body and aid wellness.
What Are The Benefits For Me?
Pre or Post Surgeries
Surgeries often require a lot of downtime and rest, and your range of movement has been decreased. It can be hard to find the strength and motivation to tackle your physical wellbeing once more, which is why Clinical Pilates is so beneficial. The low-impact, controlled movements are perfect for those on the road to recovery.
Postural Retraining and Spinal Pain
Our posture can affect everything, from our breathing to the pain in our knees, but bad posture is a dangerously easy habit to fall into, and requires a concentrated effort to break free from. Your smaller muscles may not be able to physically maintain good posture for extended periods of time, but Clinical Pilates can work on bringing the smaller muscles up to pace so they can provide the support for the larger muscles. This will also help your body to rearrange where pressure is being placed, which could alleviate neck and back pains which you may be accumulating through bad posture.
Every other muscle group is an extension of the core, so if your exercise routine doesn’t involve any core work then you could be at risk. Even a sedentary lifestyle, like sitting in an office chair all day, can gradually erode your core strength and leave you at serious risk of injury as your postural muscles waste away. Clinical Pilates is a low-impact way to get to know your body and find the areas that could be contributing to poor health, so you can work on restoring them.
For athletes, there is nothing more frustrating than watching your hard work waste away while you recover from an injury. Clinical Pilates can help – whether you’re at the final stages of healing or facing initial rehabilitation, a practitioner can guide you with sport-specific exercises and personal assessments.
Clinical Pilates can help you to get you your health and wellbeing back on track with a versatile list of benefits and methods.
