RESTORE Clinical Pilates

Pilates has been modified by physiotherapists and called Clinical Pilates. It marries the original principles of the Pilates technique and the latest research into the importance of activating core muscles to rehabilitate or prevent injuries. Clinical Pilates is the perfect complement to physiotherapy.

At RESTORE, our physiotherapists understand painful conditions and are the ideal practitioners to guide you through restorative exercise programs using the Pilates principles. Emphasis is on muscle control and correcting biomechanics (the way you move).

We conduct individual consultations to accurately assess your condition. A personalised program of exercises is formulated to suit your needs. Spring loaded equipment such as the Trapeze Table and Reformer are used to facilitate correct muscle activation patterns in our bright, modern studio. To ensure that proper foundations of movement are learnt, patients are closely monitored. Once confident, patients progress to supervised small groups. Clinical Pilates is suitable for adolescents through to the older client
