Clinical Pilates is:

Prescribed exercise aimed at targeting specific stabilising muscles that will restore function and relieve pain, so your body can move well.

  • Specific – your Clinical Pilates-trained physiotherapist will do a thorough musculo-skeletal assessment, and use evidence-based exercise prescription that is specific for your physical needs. We may use specialised spring-loaded equipment to enhance ‘control’, prior to developing strength.
  • Supervised – you will receive fully supervised exercise by qualified health professionals.
  • Scientific – you are guaranteed expert diagnosis by physiotherapists, based on latest scientific research. Core stabilisation training and efficient trunk muscle function has been shown to assist recovery and importantly, reduce the risk of injury. Current scientific research shows that targeted individual exercise programs, designed and supervised by a physiotherapist, are an effective way to treat a number of conditions.
  • Individualised – in order for you to reach your goals a personalised exercise program will be developed, monitored and progressed by our physiotherapists.
