Building strong foundations
Pilates is a type of mind-body exercise developed in the early 20th century by German physical trainer Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. It develops the body through muscular effort that stems from the core.
There are lots of classes around, but it can be difficult for you to feel confident that you are doing the exercises properly in a class environment. Sometimes, doing exercises incorrectly can cause more problems than they solve.
With our 1:1 Pilates sessions, you can be confident that your technique will be spot-on as not much gets past our ‘Eagle Eyes’.
Pilates is a therapy adjunct, and all patients must first have a physiotherapy assessment to determine the best course of treatment.
If it is felt that Pilates would be beneficial, then a program of Pilates exercises can be commenced. We usually find that we use these exercises in combination with other physio techniques such as pain relieving modalities and manual therapy.
Sessions are with an APPI (The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) trained physio and most patients will need treatment over three months to feel the benefit and notice strength changes.
