Clinical exercise and Pilates helps build control to prevent future flare-ups of existing issues. It is a good way to educate movement patterns so the body works more efficiently and therefore reduces pain. It can also be a good steppingstone back to move vigorous fitness activities after a period of rest.
How can Clinical Exercise benefit me?
Clinical Exercise helps re-educate your movement patterns to make them more efficient and controlled. This helps to reduce pain, improve functional movement and can get you back into the gym, sport or work. Start your journey with an assessment and one-on-one session with your physiotherapist to build a personalised program to suit your health concerns, injuries, capabilities and goals. You may need several one-on-one sessions to learn your new exercises. We also incorporate other exercises which are not Pilates-based to give you a well-rounded exercise program, targeting your goals. You can then start attending our semi-private classes!
Our classes are intimate with up to four participants per class. They are run by our physiotherapists who have attended courses in Pilates to guide you through your program, offering mat pilates, reformer, and trapeze exercises.
Can I do my exercises at home?
Yes, our physiotherapists can alter your program to cater to the equipment you have at home. If you're new to Pilates, we recommend a course of classes here at the clinic to ensure your movement is correct during the exercises. The physiotherapist will assist in any corrections needed. Once you and your physiotherapist are confident, you can reduce your classes to start your at home program.
How often do I need to attend?
Depending on your health and fitness goals, we recommend 1-2 classes per week.
