Physio-led Pilates is a form of exercise that combines the principles of Pilates with physiotherapy. This means that the exercises are led by a qualified physiotherapist who has an in-depth understanding of the body’s anatomy and how it functions.
The physiotherapist will assess the individual’s needs and create a tailored program that incorporates exercises to improve core stability, strength, and mobility.
The exercises in Physio-led Pilates sessions are usually performed on a mat or with specialized equipment such as a reformer. They focus on controlled movements that target specific muscle groups and aim to improve overall body awareness and alignment.
During Physio-led Pilates sessions, the physiotherapist will provide guidance and support to ensure that the individual is performing the exercises correctly and safely. They may also incorporate hands-on techniques such as massage or joint mobilization to enhance the benefits of the exercises.
Physio-led Pilates sessions can be beneficial for a wide range of individuals, including those with back pain, postural issues, sports injuries, and neurological conditions. They are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels and can be adapted to suit individual needs and goals.
