Clinical Pilates & Physio Group Therapy

Pilates is an exercise program which will give you strength, flexibility and stability all at the same time.

Physio Group Therapy Sessions

We offer several Physio guided group exercise sessions each week where you are able to to get a whole body work-out using clinical pilates base and strength and conditioning principals in a small group environment. After having a full assessment with one of our physiotherapists we gain a solid understanding of your body’s condition (acute or chronic injuries), your fitness level, postural control and work situation (whether a manual or desk worker), then we can tailor exercises specific to your needs.

Clinical Pilates Background

Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates in New York and used almost exclusively by dancers at first. It is now used universally, with and without equipment. Clinical Pilates has since evolved where physiotherapists use the Pilates principals to emphasise core stability and correction of movement patterns.

Our Physio guided classes are suitable for anyone who wishes to have positive results by becoming fitter, stronger and more flexible, with better posture and a healthier lifestyle. It is safe for beginners, and effective for elite athletes and people with sports injuries. Neck and back pain sufferers find relief. The aged gain strength, balance and confidence. Pilates is effective for osteoporosis, both in prevention and control. Used in rehabilitation and post surgery, Pilates will help you regain movement and strength. It is suitable during pregnancy. It helps those in chronic pain. Pilates has also been shown to aid mental health by helping those suffering from stress, anxiety, depression,  weight and eating disorders.

Exercise regimes get the best results when some is done almost every day, and attending a series of our Physio guided group classes will encourage you to establish a home regime and enable the benefits to truly be felt. The focus in classes is on mat work – learning exercises that you can carry on at home with. Beginners attending 2-3 sessions a week have the ability to improve quickly and gain an understanding of the principles of this practice, under the supervision of our physiotherapists who have a great understanding of the human body and the problems that arise from acute or chronic conditions.
