What is Pilates?
Pilates utilises the additional level of physiological and anatomical knowledge your physiotherapist has to modify and prescribe appropriate pilates exercises.
Pilates incorporates an individually tailored assessment and treatment approach towards rehabilitation from injury. This means that the Physiotherapist can provide exercises and movements to your specific condition, allowing the appropriate targeting of problem areas promoting greater injury management and recovery.
Pilates can be used to treat acute spinal conditions, rehabilitation from chronic neck and back pain, rehabilitate sporting injuries, improve muscle control and treat pre and postnatal patients. It can also be used to maintain flexibility and strength to prevent injuries.
Your Physiotherapist will work one-on-one with you to devise a tailor-made program, which may include pilates based and other exercises, to ensure you recover fully from your condition/injury.
The Physiotherapist may progress you from one-on-one sessions to small group sessions under supervision.
