Clinical Pilates & Exercise Classes incorporate a range of exercise modalities and focus on treating specific injury or areas of pain. These classes combine clinical pilates with yoga, gym based training techniques and whole body functional training, and can provide additional benefits in the form of improved posture, balance and flexibility. By retraining your body’s core through targeted exercise, muscle pain and discomfort can be alleviated.
The aim of the treatment is to support overall recovery. Muscles are activated through specific exercises, as prescribed by a physiotherapist trained in rehabilitation. Where general exercises may aggravate existing trauma, or put you at risk of further injury – specific, targeted rehabilitation is measured and attuned to your body’s requirements.
Rehab classes are evidence-based, with exercises prescribed based on expert knowledge of anatomy and physiology. An understanding of pilates techniques as well as body movement patterns and periodisation training is integral to establishing an exercise program that addresses rehabilitation from injury.
Clinical Pilates & Exercise Classes remove the trial and error from your traditional exercise routine – your body is unique, and your training should reflect this. Clinical assessment and diagnosis provides and individual program that helps you alleviate pain, with supervision improving technique and lowering risk of future injury.
When Clinical Pilates & Exercise Classes are utilised as part of holistic treatment, they can contribute to:
- Specific improvement of injuries and pain.
- Preventing future injuries.
- Improved posture and core stability with enhanced ergonomics.
- Improved sporting performance.
- Greater strength and flexibility.
After assessment and consultation, our physiotherapists can determine specific exercises that benefit your body and physical capabilities. Exercises are targeted to specific muscles, and are based on your identified imbalances or injury.
