Clinical Pilates

Clinical PilatesClinical PilatesClinical Pilates is a form of exercise and rehabilitation that combines the traditional pilates principles with the latest scientific research being undertaken by qualified physiotherapists.

Each Clinical Pilates sessions focuses on teaching clients to improve their core (mid-section) stability through the contraction of specific muscle groups and correct posture. These particular muscles create a brace-like hold around your lower back, thus protecting it from possible injury.

Clinical Pilates is an excellent form of exercise to treat conditions such as:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Poor Posture
  • Sports Injuries
  • Poor Flexibility
  • Pre/Post Natal Pregnancy
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Poor Fitness Levels

Whilst the main focus is on improving core stability, exercises are performed involving the entire body. This helps to improve factors such as body strength, flexibility, posture, breathing patterns and mental focus.

At Pilates @ Brighton, all the Clinical Pilates sessions involve the use of special spring-loaded pilates equipment such as the Reformer beds and Trapeze table. Participants are also given specific floor exercises so that they can continue to exercise at home or work.

Following an initial one-on-one physiotherapy assessment and Clinical Pilates introduction, clients can choose to continue their sessions either privately (1:1) or semi-privately (maximum of 3 people). These sessions run for approximately one hour.

Clinical Pilates sessions are covered by most Private Health Funds, WorkCover, and TAC.
