Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.
"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body." Joseph Pilates
If you have issues or problems that will be exacerbated by core strength exercises it can be a real bonus to have Pilates lessons from a physiotherapist. A physiotherapist is a health care professional who specialises in maximising human movement, function and potential.
A physiotherapist may work with someone after injury, accident or surgery, or may work to prevent injury for instance with sporting clubs or in the workplace.

What is Pilates?
Pilates is a series of exercises designed to improve flexibility, strength, core stability, posture and balance. It is a "mind/body" technique which was discovered by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900's and which was originally called "contrology". As a young man, Pilates took inspiration from yoga, Zen Buddhism and physical exercises of the Greek and Roman expires.
Pilates for Whiplash
The reason that most people continue to get persistent pain following a motor vehicle accident of whiplash-type injury is that their core muscles turn off which results in the outer, more superficial muscles being used in functions for which they have not been designed. This is turn creates abnormal movement patterns which persist long after any original soft tissue injuries have healed.
