Regular Pilates is conducted by a Pilates instructor, whereas Clinical Pilates is prescribed and supervised by a Physiotherapist. The difference is very important because a physiotherapist has an in-depth knowledge of injury, pathology, body function and movement patterns. The physiotherapist will assess each person and determine which exercises will be the most effective for each individual. This becomes especially important if you have a history of injury such as low back pain, whiplash, hypermobility or an athlete coming back from an injury. There will be certain exercises which need to be adapted specifically for you.
