What is Clinical Pilates?

      _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b3b-136bad  _cc781905-5cde-3194- ccde-3194cf13631365c5cf3b31994cbdc13653155cf -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     Joseph Humbertus Pilates, the creator of Pilates, struggled with many diseases such as rickets, asthma and rheumatic fever in childhood. While trying to cope with these diseases, she has worked on yoga, zen meditation and many rigorous exercise programs. He was taken prisoner with the outbreak of World War I and was taken prisoner in an island hospital. Influenced by the patients who did not exercise, he started to implement a light exercise program for these patients.  Doctors, who saw that the patients who did the exercises recovered faster than the others, developed the program by adding the use of spring resistance to the Joseph exercises. The springs provided gradual endurance by partially working the muscles, tendons and ligaments, thus accelerating the recovery time.

In Clinical Pilates, Pilates movements were analyzed scientifically and the relations of movements with clinical applications were examined. Classical exercises are first modified with pathogenesis, pain and function, and divided into levels that the individual can perform, four or six levels. Thus, this special exercise system allows to start rehabilitation in the early period, and it is loaded appropriately for the person and helps us to move it to the highest functional level by gradually increasing it. The purpose of modifying the exercises is that the movements designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s are incompatible with today's computer and sedentary life age.

It is designed to use our body more efficiently in daily life activities and to reduce possible injuries and pain situations. It is designed for use by physiotherapists for rehabilitation purposes.

Pilates is based on eight principles; breathing, concentration, control, centering, precision, fluency, integrated isolation and routine.

How does Clinical Pilates work?

      _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b3b-136bad  _cc781905-5cde-3194- ccde-3194cf13631365c5cf3b31994cbdc13653155cf -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_     Central connection is retrained with dysfunctional muscle. With appropriate motion control, control, mobility and reinforcement are integrated. We need to integrate the synergy between the small control muscles and the large force producing muscles to create the synergistic balance between the fascia and the articulation in order to best implement the best range of motion effectiveness.
