About Clinical Pilates
Dance Medicine Australia (DMA) Clinical Pilates™ involves specific exercises designed to improve the way you move. It is a personalised treatment method that addresses the cause of your pain, not just the symptoms of the injury. In addition to addressing your problem areas, DMA Clinical Pilates™ positively affects your whole body through the improvement of strength, mobility, posture and movement control.
DMA Clinical Pilates™ is very different from the generic reformer or fitness/mat pilates, that offer homogenous programs (where everybody does the same thing). Using DMA Clinical Pilates™ as a foundation, our program is responsive to your whole body throughout every session.
Clinical Pilates is specific to you.
Increasingly, research is now proving just how efficient and valuable DMA Clinical Pilates™ programs are. Our Physiotherapists have trained extensively with DMA Clinical Pilates™, who are the leaders of Clinical Pilates training and research both in Australia and internationally. Did you ever wonder why your back hurts when you sit too long, but you’re fine when standing? 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 DMA Clinical Pilates™ classes address your needs with personalised programs, providing faster and long-term results.
We provide both private and group classes (up to 4 people per class), six days per week. We also use the latest DMA Clinical Pilates™ equipment, such as trapeze and reformers in our spacious Nedlands studio.
What you can expect
During your initial assessment we 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 safe and comfortable way. Your program will be closely supervised and continuously reviewed to ensure you are achieving the results you want.
These are some of the common outcomes you can expect from a Clinical Pilates program with us:
- Improved posture, strength, balance and control
- Reduced pain and ability to manage your injury
- Correction of poor mechanics that underlie your injury
- Greater resistance to injury
- Training your muscle groups to help your body work safely and more efficiently
- Optimising your body’s performance.
