Clinical Pilates vs. Fitness Pilates in Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas

Pilates is a wonderful exercise form for fitness as well as physical rehabilitation. Unfortunately, Pilates comprehensive certification program prepare Pilates instructors only to teach “Fitness Pilates”, which is Pilates for healthy bodies (no injuries). So, basic Pilates education does not give enough education about working with musculoskeletal and neurological problems and dysfunctions. Too confident Pilates instructors with lack of education are a dangerous combination. Don’t get me wrong, Pilates is still good for rehabilitation and post-rehabilitation – but only when taught by a skilled Physical Therapist or very experienced Pilates Instructor. Physical therapists have advanced education about anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and exercise invention and they are experienced to work with regarding different kind of diagnosis and bodily dysfunctions.

In Australia they have wisely separated clinical and fitness Pilates. Clinical Pilates is only taught by Physiotherapist (=Physical Therapist). Fitness Pilates is taught by fitness professionals or dancers. Aussies have understood also how good Pilates exercise is when practiced together with traditional physical therapy. Also in Finland they have separated clinical Pilates education which is only designed for Physical Therapists, and Mat Pilates certification program for fitness professionals. They don’t allow Pilates instructors with dancing & fitness background to work with injuries.

Clinical Pilates aims to correct biomechanical alignment and muscle imbalances which are caused by faulty compensation patterns due pain, disease or injury. Fitness Pilates concentrates only in proper Pilates exercise techniques, nice cuing and body & mind connection, which is definitely not enough for the people with post rehabilitation or rehabilitation needs.

Fitness Pilates:

  • Dance-oriented exercises, used for general conditioning and lifestyle
  • Strong bias towards flexion, stretching, end-of-range movements,
  •  No evidence to support its use for rehabilitation of low-back pain
  • Non pathology-specific exercises

Clinical Pilates:

  • Benefit Diagnostic and rehabilitation tool for injury and performance enhancement  
  • Progresses from static stabilization to dynamic; trains local then global stability systems.
  • Neutral zone stability comes before end-of-range flexibility
  • Aims to fulfill established evidence based criteria
  • Observes pathology under load and modifies accordingly
