Pilates restores joint mobility, muscles strength and stability of the core muscles. In fact all our joints have core stabilizing muscles.

Pilates is effective because it reprograms the brain to fire the muscles in their correct patterns, sometime called neuro-muscular coordination. Neuro-muscular coordination is the most important principle in rehabilitation.

The Pilates equipment is ideal as it supports and facilitates this coordination. We use the Reformer, Stability Chair, Tower-Cadillac Trainer and The Barrels.

Each exercise is a treatment and chosen specifically to address the underlying problem or injury. This requires some repetition and correct cuing to break down old patterns and teach new ones.



This involves the therapist restoring the correct biomechanics to a joint, either to the spine or peripheral joints. Different techniques can be used to treat pain or stiffness. Examples include manual traction and mobilizations directed onto the joint.



Mobilizing a joint should be combined with soft tissue massage. This will help to reduce inflammation and pain. Deep tissue massage can also be used to break down scar tissue after a muscle strain.



In the initial stage of an injury it is important to address pain. Sports massage and manual therapy are used to achieve this. Kinesiotaping can help to support weak and painful joints or muscles. Your Doctor may be able to prescribe some medication in the acute stages of your injury.



The running clinic takes a Pilates-based assessment approach to running injuries. We look at your overall biomechanics, muscle strength and coordination. We look for the underlying causes of your injury or problem. The assessment includes: running gait; hip, knee and foot alignment; muscle strength; running shoes; flexibility; running technique.



This coloured tape is definitely not gimmicky. The tape can be used at different stages of an injury to treat pain, inflammation and joint/muscle weakness. It is ideal when used with Pilates as it helps to facilitate correct muscle patterns. It can also be used to inhibit muscles that are over-active. It helps to improve tissue metabolism where there is inflammation.

How Effective is Pilates 4 Physio?

Pilates based Rehabilitation is one of the most cutting edge exercise techniques used in the treatment of injures and musculoskeletal conditions. Manual therapy is well supported in the literature for being effective in the management of joint pain and restoring mobility.

You can also claim Pilates based physiotherapy for general exercise programs where there are specific goals, such as injury prevention.

Exercise treatment for the lower back and neck is one of the most supported modalities in physiotherapy research today. Pilates is unique because of the emphasis on the stabilizing muscles in most joints of the body.
