Pilates is a mind-body exercising technique that emphasizes the importance of beginning a movement from a central core of stability, the low back/pelvic area.

From this central core, Pilates works by adjusting the intensity of each exercise through various arm and leg movements, coupled with appropriate breathing control. The exercises consist of strengthening, mobility and stretching movements.

Injuries, such as back pain, can be caused by muscle imbalances in the body and by repetitive patterns of movement. If a person has a weakness in an area, they may overcompensate or overdevelop another area in order to achieve a certain movement.

By concentrating on precision of movement, awareness of breath control and a continuing flowing movement, the exerciser will be able to alter abnormal patterns of movement and achieve a carry over into daily function and life.

Physiotherapy and Pilates focuses on the importance of a balanced aligned body and is devoted to correcting muscle imbalances in the back and limbs, progressing towards a more functional lifestyle
