Clinical Pilates

The idea behind Pilates is that you are going to do stretches and light exercises in order to tone and strengthen the core muscles. This is particularly important for your general health because those core muscles are used to stabilize our bodies in almost every movement we do and use. These muscles help us bend and twist at the waist and they support and strengthen our back. This means that right away by practicing Pilates we are able to avoid back injuries and even able to help ourselves recover from back pain once it already exists. Of course strengthening your core muscles also means something else – that you look great and that you enjoy a flatter stomach and more toned legs and buttocks. You’ll burn calories and tone up and this has countless benefits not only for your health but also for your happiness and confidence and your success in relationships and even careers.

Furthermore the gentle stretches used in Pilates can be very beneficial too. Many exercises in Pilates involve stretching the spine and gradually opening out the vertebrae and massaging the area against the mat. If you have say a trapped nerve then this can be fantastic for helping to let it out, and for helping to ease any discomfort caused by pressure on the muscles or any internal organs as well and generally it can help you to combat pain through the fact that it is exercise – which results in the release of pain killing endorphins.

The stretching applies to other areas too and you will stretch your hamstrings and your arms and more with many of the movements. This then in turn causes you to reduce your chance of injury by allowing your joints to become more supple and more able to bend and stretch when you make sudden movements. Of course your joints become easier to move as well and this is great if you have any conditions like arthritis (though you should check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise regime).
