Exercise Physiology

Our Exercise Physiology and Clinical Pilates method incorporates a thorough initial consultation where your exercise physiologist will discuss with you your condition & establish goals for your rehabilitation. They will assess you with a thorough Biomechanical Assessment to highlight movement imbalances and identify the underlying cause of your condition. This assessment will help you to understand how these imbalances are impacting your movement & contributing to your problems. Your Exercise Physiologist will then design a personalised exercise program to treat your injuries and correct muscle imbalances, restoring your body’s ideal movement patterns to increase control and efficiency.

During our appointments, we utilise mat work, Pilates equipment, Weights and resistance bands. This allows us to safely mobilise joints, reduce muscle guarding and correct imbalances and weakness because of the injury. We also work on accessing deeper muscle groups to provide greater support to the body’s skeleton. We are happy to work closely with your other health practitioners including GP’s, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths etc., to provide the best possible care for you.

Chronic pain can have an enormous impact on people. It can cause you to stop, slow down and avoid movement. It may interfere with your sleep patterns, your ability to work and conduct daily activities, and it can cause emotional distress and lead to serious mental health problems, including depression.

The goals of pain treatment are to enhance functioning, restore your movement, educate you about the pain pathway, support the musculature around your back and core, and help to better manage your pain, reducing suffering and distress,

We can help you with pain management by working one on one with our Exercise Physiologists to help with understanding pain, improve your range of motion and help manage your pain flare ups.
