Clinical Exercise Treatment Sessions:

We provide individually tailored Clinical Exercise Treatment Programs that can be completed as  Supervised Clinical Exercise Sessions or as a Home Program……or BOTH!!

Clinical Exercise Treatment Program development involves a detailed verbal assessment: looking for patterns of injuries including both current & past, considering all medical & physical conditions, lifestyle, short term & long term goals. It then involves a detailed physical assessment before deciding with you on what should form part of your treatment.

Clinical Pilates – Movement Based Classification & Treatment (MBC&T) approach is a valuable adjunct to physiotherapy management and can be incorporated into your care to assist in recovery, prevention and maintenance from injury or dysfunction.

Examples of situations we can manage with Clinical Exercise Treatment Sessions are:

  • Pre & post surgery or surgery prevention
  • Complex / chronic condition including arthritis, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, dysautonomia & neurological conditions
  • Lower back, neck & upper back problems
  • Lumbar & pelvic instability including pelvic floor weakness
  • Recurring / persistent injuries affecting one or more muscles or joints of the body eg shoulder, hamstrings……..often all on one side of the body!
  • Sports injuries, sport-specific performance enhancement & injury prevention
  • Falls & balance issues
  • Pre & post natal women
  • Deficits in strength & coordination
