Clinical pilates, is it for you?

01 Jan 0001

Pilates is a form of exercise that is suitable for people from all age groups. It uses a system of exercises designed to improve strength, posture, flexibility and overall physical fitness.

At SportsHealth Physio & Sports Injury Clinic, clinical Pilates classes are run by experienced physiotherapists with postgraduate training, ensuring high quality management through extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and rehabilitation from orthopaedic and sports medicine conditions.
Clinical Pilates classes are run in a small group with a maximum of four-five people per class allowing for plenty of 1:1 attention throughout the session.

Participants get individualised program specific to their needs which is done through a detailed assessment prior to commencing any sessions. These programs are progressed as you get stronger and may differ from week to week, which also breaks the monotony of doing the same exercises every session. Additionally, private health insurance can be used to claim on the cost of the class.

If you are recovering or undertaking rehab from an injury or surgery, Pilates can help to regain lost strength and endurance, improve balance and control. It’s a great way to transition back to sport or to return to your everyday activities through a structured exercise approach. What is better, it can also help fine tune sports specific skills.

If you are someone who has a typical office desk setting, you may suffer from poor posture which in turn can result in back or neck pain. Pilates can help correct your posture and also stretches out those sore or tight areas. Contact SportsHealth Physio to learn more and book your next appointment.
