Clinical Pilates is a form of exercise therapy used by our physiotherapists to treat a wide range of injuries and conditions. By working into your body’s preferred movement, Clinical Pilates improves your mobility, stability, balance, posture and overall function. It is often used in combination with physical therapy as part of your rehabilitation.
Clinical Pilates offers a system of safe, effective and highly specific exercises appropriate for all ages and abilities. These physiotherapist-run programs are individually designed after a mandatory full musculoskeletal assessment has taken place with a physiotherapist to suit your level and ability, reducing the risk of aggravation and re-injury. They aim to improve patients posture, core stability, strength, flexibility, balance and breathing with a specific focus on motor control issues that may be contributing to pain or reduced function.
At Physioactive we offer both Mat and Reformer Pilates sessions. Both utilise a range of equipment and are tailored specifically for each individual within small groups. Clinical Pilates is suitable for most musculoskeletal conditions, pregnancy and post-partum, pre- and post-op, neurological, ageing and balance conditions. If you are interested in booking an initial Clinical Pilates assessment or scheduling a 6 monthly review, please speak with your treating therapist or contact our wonderful administration team.
