Clinical Pilates involves specific exercises designed to improve the way you move.
Did you ever wonder why your back hurts when you sit too long, but you’re fine when you stand?
Or why some people are comfortable on planes, but others can’t sit still?
Uncomfortable positions are often reflective of the direction your body prefers to move.
Our Clinical Pilates classes address your needs with personalised programs, providing faster and long-term results.
At our clinic, you can expect a whole-body assessment to work out what’s going on for you and a personalised treatment program that addresses the cause of your pain, not just the symptoms of your injury.
In addition to addressing your problem areas, Clinical Pilates positively affects your whole body through the improvement of strength, mobility, posture and movement control.
Our programs are specific to your needs.
Clinical Pilates is very different from the generic reformer or fitness/mat pilates, that offer homogenous programs (where everybody does the same thing).
Our programs are responsive to your whole body throughout every session.
Clinical Pilates considers ‘neural drive’ and ‘directional preference’. Neural drive is how your brain and muscles communicate to enable good posture and functional movement.
Research has proved just how efficient and valuable Clinical Pilates programs are. Our Physiotherapists have trained extensively with DMA Clinical Pilates™, who are the leaders of pilates training and research both in Australia and internationally.
We provide both private and group consultations (up to 4 people per class), six days per week. We also use the latest equipment including trapeze and reformers, in our spacious Nedlands studio.
What you can expect
Most people notice a substantial improvement in the way they move from doing regular Clinical Pilates programs.
During your initial assessment your Physiotherapist thoroughly assess your whole body and create a program that is specific to you.
We show you how to safely use the equipment and do the techniques in a comfortable way.
Your program is closely supervised and continuously reviewed to ensure you are progressing towards your goals.
These are some of the common outcomes you can expect from a Clinical Pilates program with us:
