David Roberts Physio understand how to use Pilates to ensure that your muscles are fit to withstand the wear and tear of daily life. Pilates teaches body awareness, muscle control and strong posture. It improves flexibility, agility and strength. We offer Pilates classes at our clinics in Blackburn, Bolton and Stockport. We also offer one-to-one Pilates sessions.
Pilates exercises develop a strong “core,” or centre of the body. The core consists of the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine.

What is Pilates?
Pilates exercise develops strong abdominal, back, gluteal, and deep postural muscles to support the skeletal system and act as the “Powerhouse” of the body. Pilates works to strengthen the center, lengthen the spine, increase body awareness, build muscle tone and improve flexibility. The Pilates method is a proven rehabilitation system for back, knee, hip, shoulder and repetitive strain injuries. Pilates addresses the body as a whole correcting weaknesses and poor flexibility bringing the body back into balance.
Evidence supports the use of the pilates method in the prevention and rehabilitation of back pain.
Pilates targets your postural muscles and can help to:
- Reshape your body to appear leaner and longer
- Improve posture and therefore associated complaints
- Build core strength by targeting abdominal and pelvic muscle groups
- Improve body flexibility
- Enhance breathing patterns
- Relieve stress and tension
