Clinical Pilates

Why should I do Pilates with a Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists study muscle and joint anatomy and physiology, therefore they have the expertise required to effectively prescribe Pilates for people with and without pain or injury. Pilates is also a great way to exercise before and after pregnancy.

Pilates with a physiotherapist improves core stability to help manage and prevent low back and neck pain, enhances postural control, body awareness and flexibility, helps to reduce the risk of pain or re-injury and strengthens and tones the muscles. Our physios have undertaken extensive training with DMA (Dance Medicine Australia), who are at the forefront of clinical pilates development, training and research in Australia and internationally.
