Pilates is a well recognised management technique for scoliosis; being able to improve posture and reduce pain. This specialty class is designed specifically for clients with scoliosis, using exercises designed to optimise spinal alignment. The small class size (maximum of eight participants) and delivery by a Specialist Chartered Physiotherapist, means focused individualised treatment, within a group setting.
