Clinical Pilates

Pilates needs to be specific to the individual to be beneficial for patients with certain injuries, and not used as a generic tool for everyone. Clinical Pilates, which differs from generic Pilates classes, identifies key issues by applying carefully selected exercises to patients with specific injuries to optimise gains whilst significantly reducing the likelihood of injury aggravation. It is essential to have an assessment with a physiotherapist to assess the suitability of a core stability program for you should you intend to commence Pilates for your injury

Benefits of Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates exercises offer numerous benefits, which include:

  • Improved posture and core stability
  • Increased muscular strength and flexibility
  • Prevention of injuries
  • Aiding rehabilitation
  • Restoration of normal movement patterns
  • Enhanced breathing control
  • Increased co-ordination and muscular control
  • Firmer and flatter stomach muscles
  • Improved overall body tone and fitness
  • Improved balance

The clinical pilates classes are individualised to each person and are run by physiotherapists trained in pilates.  There are a maximum of 4 participants in each class.  Each class can be claimed back on Private Health Insurance under the code 560.

In our BRAND NEW clinical pilates studio we have 4 reformer beds, a trapeze table, wunda chair and too many pilates accessories to mention here!

At Beaumaris Physio & Health we also have a Real Time Ultrasound.  This Ultrasound can be used externally over the lower abdomen to assess deep abdominal and Pelvic Floor Muscles.  This allows for another method of non-invasive assessment of the core muscles.
