Sometimes, Clinical Pilates as rehabilitation goes a step beyond traditional physical therapy because it re-educates clients about their entire body about how it should move more safely and efficiently. Clinical Pilates can vary from specific isolated movements to more dynamic ones as necessary for the stage of rehab.

Why Sport Injuries Prevention is important?
Injuries do not happen overnight. Many injuries may actually be caused by faulty body biomechanics, muscle imbalance, body misalignment, poor performance technique, repetitive motion, and wear and tear. The sport and overuse injuries can be completely eliminated by well-designed conditioning program which focuses on proper biomechanics, muscle balance, proper muscle recruitment, core strength, and stability.
Core strength is a vital component of any injury prevention, rehabilitation, and sport performance program. A strong, stable core and spine provides a dynamic link between upper and lower body. It also alleviates excess stress from the peripheral joints. All Pilates movements engage your deep core stabilizer muscles and provide you solid foundation to generate your strength for your sport. Pilates movements also improve biomechanical efficiency and muscular balance along with increasing proprioceptive awareness.
