Here at West Suffolk Physio we use a Pilates exercise approach in rehabilitation programs to enhance recovery and encourage the use of Pilates as a long term investment in maintaining a healthy body and lifestyle.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a body conditioning exercise method. It is a way of strengthening the body in order for it to function in the best possible way. 

There are 8 basic Pilates principles:

Concentration - Pilates requires a focussed approach to allow you to fulfil your movement potential and become more body aware

Breathing - A good breathing pattern helps with focus and control of movements. It can also ease tension and areas of pain or discomfort

Centring - Focusses on the ability to control the trunk in order to support movement of your spine and other internal systems

Control- Accurate performance of movements makes everyday activities more efficient and comfortable

Precision- The more accurate you are in performing the movements the more you will get out of the exercise in terms of strength and flexibility

Flow - Seamless movement will feel comfortable and is a freeing experience for the body

Integrated Isolations - Practiced harmonious movements of the body using Pilates exercises supports performance of complex daily activities 

Routine- Regular practice of Pilates exercises is integral to your success and has a range of benefits to your body and mind
