Pilates is a form of dynamic stabilisation retraining that conditions the body and thereby treats or prevents the occurrence or recurrence of a range of postural, musculo-skeletal and neurological conditions.
In simple terms that means you will strengthen and tone the muscles of your arms, legs, buttocks and especially your trunk (abdominal muscles and back muscles). This will not only strengthen and tone you, but by doing so reduce your likelihood of (or reoccurrence of) musculo-skeletal problems - especially back pain. This has been clinically proven and published in medical journals. The increasing evidence for the use of these exercises in the treatment and prevention of a range of conditions is why Physiotherapists are such advocates of Pilates and are teaching it in ever increasing numbers.

Pilates is just as relevant for the elite athlete as it is for those with medical conditions - and everyone in between.
It is for fitness, strengthening, rehabilitation and for fun!  
It is for men and women of all ages and abilities.
We will have a class to suit you and ensure you are placed in the appropriate one.

Modifies Pilates was designed by physiotherapists using current research evidence surrounding spinal stabilisation and lumbo-pelvic stability. It has (as the name suggests) modified some of the traditional Pilates exercises (some of which could exacerbate back pain) to make them suitable for the general population and those with back/joint pain.

We recommended a large number of our Physiotherapy patients to attend Pilates classes to manage their conditions. Chiltern Physio Pilates was set up as a result of the difficulty our patients reported in finding classes.  When they did find a class or got through the waiting list, instructors were often reluctant to have them in the class if they had any kind of  pain or problem. Also patients would return with problems after being taught inappropriate exercises. Pilates is not regulated in any way and while most instructors are very competent at teaching the exercises, they cannot be expected to have the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and pathology that a physiotherapist has.

Whether you are doing Pilates for fitness, rehab or fun - doing it with a Physiotherapist will ensure you optimise you goals without jeopardising your health.
