What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph pilates, involving stretches and breathing that focus on strengthening the abdominal core muscles.

Why are the core muscles important?

The core muscles are important for keeping the lower back stable, which helps to increase the quailty of strength and movement in the back.

Working out the deeper core muscles require much concentration and perserverance. Core muscle exercises for abdominal and back stability compared to situps for building abdominals are 2 very different things.

Why choose a physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are throroughly trained in human anatomy and biomechanics, and have the ability to assess your condition accurately, and work with you one on one to make sure you are activating the core muscles correctly.

Exercises published in books and websites are good as long as the core muscles are activated correctly. In the event you have had an injury the close attention of a physiotherapist is even more important.
