Clinical Pilates is the form of therapeutic exercise used by physiotherapists to assist in the rehabilitation and prevention of musculoskeletal injury. Its main aim is to improve the core stabilizing muscles lying deep in your abdomen and spine. Specialised pilates equipment such as reformer beds and trapeze tables are used in conjunction with swiss-ball and matwork floor exercises to specifically activate these muscles therefore allowing normal function of your body.
Research suggests that exercises need to be specific to each individual to obtain the best results. Following a thorough assessment, and real-time ultrasound analysis of your core stability muscles our Physiotherapists will design a Clinical Pilates Program specific to your individual needs and requirements.
Following this assessment, patients have the option of attending individual or group sessions. Group sessions have a maximum of 6 clients and all sessions are always supervised by a physiotherapist. Keeping the classes small in size, ensures the sessions have individualised focus and ensures you are always monitored by the physiotherapist.
Rebates are available for pilates sessions through your Private Health Insurance.
