Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a fun new scientific take on the traditional Pilates concept as originally developed by Joseph Pilates.

Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists, with expertise in injury management, undergo postgraduate training which involves assessing clients via a Movement Based Classification and Treatment system. This equates to matching clients and their particular problems with the best Pilates based exercises which can be either floor or apparatus based (Reformer, Trapeze Table). Exercises are tailored to your specific needs and thereby safer than traditional Pilates which tend to be generic, run in groups and where some exercises can be aggravating for your condition.

Clinical Pilates is used as part of the optimal treatment plan taking into consideration your personal requirements. Clinical Pilates translates emerging evidence into practical practice and incorporates the whole person and functional requirements. It includes balance, breathing, core control, strength, endurance and flexibility.

Private Clients

A referral is not required for Physio as a private client. If you have private insurance health fund extras cover please bring your fund card and we can process your claim directly via HICAPs. Also bring along any relevant reports, scans etc.

What to expect in your consult?

Your initial new episode consultation will involve a comprehensive assessment where we ascertain your relevant history and medical history, followed by a physical examination to determine the diagnosis and cause of your problem.

This will be discussed with you where we form a treatment plan for your needs. The treatment may vary but will often include a combination of “hands on therapies”, taping, advice, exercise therapies, dry needling as well as other options.
