How does Pilates help you?

Once your physiotherapist at Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Australia has assessed your body, an individualised Pilates program will be tailor-made for your needs, rehabilitation and recovery.
Pilates helps to:
- Improve posture
- Increase core stability
- Correct muscle, joint and neural imbalances
- Total body conditioning
- Prevents, protects and enhances your recovery from injuries
Can Pilates help to improve posture?
Your pain can arise from a poor posture. Having a poor and/or uneven posture places unwanted strain on your muscles, skeleton, organs and nervous system. This can create pain and potentially irreversible structural changes to your body. Pilates can help by correcting these faults and restore your correct postural alignment for optimal bodily function and reduce unwanted strain in your body.
Pilates helps to increase core stability
Scientific research and studies have shown people with spinal problems such as back pain develop a weak core. A weakened abdominal core muscle creates instability at each affected segmental vertebrae of your spine and pelvis, which directly influences you back pain and bodily dysfunction. Knowing how to strengthen your core through specific Pilates exercisers is a powerful key for long-term sustainable results for low back pain rehabilitation and management.
Pilates corrects muscle, joint and neural imbalances
Your body might be overcompensating due to some form of imbalance in your body. You may have a dysfunctional imbalance due to a group of muscles or joints which could be overactive or tight, or even under-active, weak and unstable. You may also have neural tension in your nerves such as sciatica which causes you to limp when walking creating an imbalance throughout your entire body. Once your physiotherapist identifies these imbalances, specific pilates exercisers can then be made to suit your condition to rapidly regain your recovery by correcting these imbalances throughout your body.
Can Pilates help improve total body conditioning?

- Cardiovascular system to reduce blood pressure
