Pilates can be used to treat a wide range of conditions including neck and low back pain, and rehabilitation of neuro-musculoskeletal injuries such as ankle sprains and knee pain. Pilates is also a beneficial form of exercise during and post pregnancy due to its low impact nature and individual tailored exercise prescription.
