What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical pilates is an individually tailored exercise based therapy that can be used for the treatment of injuries as well as for strengthening. Specific muscle groups are targeted with emphasis placed on development of the core stabilising muscles that support the neck, spine and pelvis. Pilates can be used in conjunction with mainstream physiotherapy techniques that may aid a broad range of physical problems. In particular chronic back and neck pain seem to respond well to an exercise based therapy program such as clinical pilates.
How is clinical pilates performed?
Clinical pilates is performed using the Clinical Reformer, floor based exercises or home programs. These options will be discussed with you in your initial consultation and a recommendation will be made depending on your goals and individual needs.
Clinical pilates is delivered as a 1 on 1 consultation. Independent sessions using the reformer are available once a specific program has been devised and you have had proper instruction on technique and method. This program will then be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure you are performing correct technique and are progressing forward with your improvements and exercises.
Clinical pilates sessions can be claimed under most of the Health Funds. Please enquire with our receptionist for further information.
