Core Strength (using some pilates principals) is a form of exercise which is often used by Physiotherapists to assist in the treatment and rehabilitation of many conditions.
It aims to improve core strength, control, posture and flexibility to reduce the strain on injured areas, allowing healing and preventing further injuries.
Core Strength (using some pilates principals) often involves the use of a “Reformer”: a device which comprises of springs and a mobile platform. The use of a reformer is generally performed under the supervision of your physiotherapist. Alternatively, Core Strength can be performed on the floor which is ideal for group sessions and home exercise.
