Clinical Pilates

Building a strong core foundation will allow your body to function at a higher capacity, improve your posture and reduce the incidence of pain and injury.

About Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a modified form of exercise developed by Physiotherapists to support the rehabilitation and prevention of muscular injuries. The exercises retrain and recruit the stabilizing muscles (core stability) as well as improve posture, strength, flexibility, balance, control, breathing and body awareness.

Legacies Clinical Pilates Program consists of:

  • Assessment: The clinician will learn about your exercise goals, relevant medical conditions, as well as will assess your posture, flexibility, and strengths related to your treatment goals
  • Exercise Program: your physiotherapist will tailor your Pilates exercise program, will guide you through the exercises on the mat, springboard and/or the reformer, and will provide you with a home exercise routine
