Pilates is a form of low-impact conditioning exercise that strengthens the core muscles of the body, in particular, the abdominal and back muscles. It can improve balance, flexibility, circulation, posture and help you to relax.
Taking part in a programme of Pilates classes can be beneficial to people who have back or neck pain, sports injuries and postural problems. It can also help people who have had orthopaedic surgery, for example, spinal surgery, hip and knee replacements, and shoulder surgery.
Pilates is increasingly being recommended by physiotherapists as a treatment to help with muscular problems, or as part of a rehabilitation programme for people who have been affected by injury, illness or disability.
