Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is conducted in a small group setting of 4 people enabling you to be monitored closely during your individualised program. Add an extra element to your self management and rehabilitation of your injury/surgery using the skills of Joseph Pilates.

Village Physiotherapy Shellharbours Physiotherapist and Exercise Physiologists are passionate about beautiful movement. Movement that makes you feel good, movement that heals not only the body but also the mind and movement that takes you on your journey to recovery. This is why our team are specialised in instructing Clinical Pilates from a rehabilitation perspective using Polestar Pilates methods.

Clinical Pilates is a method of exercise used for rehabilitation after injury or surgery. The benefits of Clincal Pilates include improvements in: posture, flexibility, muscle strength, control, balance and core and pelvic floor strengthening. Unlike Matwork Pilates where participants perform the same general program, Clinical Pilates aims to provide a more individualised approach to your treatment and goals.

Before you begin, you will have a detailed assessment by one of our physiotherapists. Based on this assessment an individualised program will be developed to suit your level and ability. Therefore, reducing the risk of aggravation and re-injury. This may involve a mix of mat work as well as exercises using Pilates equipment (reformer, Trapeze Table, Wunda chair etc)

If you would like to include Clinical Pilates as part of your recovery process talk to your current treating therapist or get in contact with our team now to secure your spot.
