Pilates is a highly effective form of exercise to improve core strength and body awareness. Correctly performed Pilates can also reduce back pain and neck and shoulder tension. Our Physiotherapists at Phytness HealthCare are highly trained in Clinical Pilates which is a technique prescribed by a physiotherapist and designed for individual clients, based on their full clinic assessment. Clinical Pilates is often more effective than traditional physiotherapy and can assist in achieving better results in a shorter timeframe.
