Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates in New York, after whom it was named. Pilates called his method “Contrology”. It is practiced worldwide, especially in Western countries such as Australia, Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. As of 2005, there were 11 million people practicing the discipline regularly and 14,000 instructors in the United States.
What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is a system of exercises conducted by a licensed doctor of physical therapy that integrates the traditional Pilates Method with evidenced based approach into musculoskeletal dysfunction. The plan of care is designed after a thorough initial evaluation and is specific to individual goals, fitness level and current condition/diagnosis.
