Clinical Pilates

What is Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is a way of strengthening the musculoskeletal system with specific emphasis placed on activation of the core muscles.  It incorporates a series of exercises based around low-impact resistance training.

It involves using Clinical Pilates specific machines known as the Reformer and Trapeze Table and also prescribed exercises using the exercise ball and floor/mat.

All programs are tailored to suit the individual and will include the instruction of  exercises to complete at home, as one’s ability enables.

Is Clinical Pilates for me?

Clinical Pilates can be used as a safe, effective, evidence-based exercise regime to help people recover from and/or manage many ailments including:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Assisting with recovery from surgery
  • Stiff joints
  • Poor posture

Clinical Pilates is low-impact in nature, it is safe for the elderly and pregnant (always consult your GP first, if at all concerned).

What do I need to do?

To join our Clinical Pilates program, you will first need to have two individual consultations with a Pilates Physiotherapist.

The first 30 minute consultation will be your initial Pilates assessment.  In this session, technique, posture and movement patterns will be assessed and discussed, as these are the keys to understanding the fundamentals of Clinical Pilates.

The second consultation will be an individual 30 minute one-on-one session.  You will be taken through a series of exercises that you would be doing during the class.  These exercises are tailored to each individual with personalised physiotherapist supervision and guidance.

At this stage, a vast majority of clients are welcome to then join a class.  If you would prefer a further one-on-one session with the Physiotherapist to gain further confidence in your exercise routine, this can easily be arranged.

If you carry injuries and require more time to fully arrange a program, the Physiotherapist may need you to complete a second one-on-one session.

When can I come?

Ideally, it is suggested that you attend Clinical Pilates 2-3 times a week for maximum benefit, but a number of our regulars also enjoy coming just once a week.

Each class has a maximum of five participants.  We keep class numbers low to allow us to ensure each participant is closely supervised by a trained instructor.

What do I wear?

It is best to wear comfortable clothing and a pair of Pilates grip socks available from  reception.
