Clinical Pilates is a traditional Pilates session combined with contemporary scientific knowledge and research. These Pilates sessions are specifically personalised programs delivered by Pilates-trained Physiotherapists. Clinical Pilates can help with the rehabilitation of chronic and complex injuries and illnesses, such as:
- Postural based injuries
- Neck and back pain
- Pre and post-natal
- Musculoskeletal injuries (shoulder, hip, knee, foot etc.)
- Balance problems
- Cancer rehabilitation
- Child and adolescent strength and neuromuscular control
These sessions ensure that you are working towards your movement goals while receiving consistent supervision and feedback from a physiotherapist.
There are three options for attending a Clinical Pilates class:
- Semi-Private class: no more than five clients per physiotherapist, each with a personalized program.
- Duet class: share your class with a friend, each with a personalised program.
- Private class: private one-on-one class for 100% of the Physiotherapist’s attention.
Before you start a Clinical Pilates class, you will need to complete an initial consultation. During the initial consultation, our physiotherapist will assess your movement and core control and discuss your personal aspirations. The physiotherapist will then design a program that details specific movements/exercises and equipment that will help you achieve your goals. You do not need to have any injuries to attend these sessions. It may be desirable for new clients who would like some more introductory sessions before attending the larger fitness based classes.
Please note that the initial consultation is compulsory for all new clients wishing to attend our Clinical Pilates classes, regardless of experience.
Clinical Pilates is taken by a Physiotherapist, so it should be claimable through your health fund. Contact your health fund if you have any questions regarding claims.
