Injury Management and Rehabilitation

 

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.

Exercise Physiology for Pain Management
 

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,

How we can help with pain management:

Work one on one with our Exercise Physiologists to help with understanding pain, improve your range of motion and help manage your pain flare ups. 

Pilates

 

Studio Pilates

Private or Duet

Studio Pilates utilises specialty equipment including the reformer, trapeze table, spine corrector and stability chair. You will have a personalised Pilates program tailored by your instructor, to fit your exact goals and needs.

 

Your Studio instructor will use all of the training tools and apparatus to target specific areas to challenge and evolve the body and mind, ensuring that you receive the optimum training to unlock your full performance potential and accelerate your results.

 

You will begin with an initial consultation, which will be used by your instructor to design your personalised program. This assessment is a perfect opportunity to discuss your goals/needs and is a great way for your instructor to assess your posture and movement patterns in order to tailor your sessions to your individual needs.

 

​Studio Pilates may be undertaken as a Private appointment or a Duet appointment (where you share your instructor with one other person). Regardless of which appointment type you choose, each person still works through their own individual program under the supervision and guidance of their instructor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reformer Pilates

The reformer is the most popular apparatus & for good reason. Our small group Reformer classes (max of 3 clients) have been designed to create change in your body through unique movement patterns on the Reformer. Our Reformer classes are a full body workout using spring loaded resistance, which lengthens and strengthens muscles, increasing lower, upper and core strength, while improving posture, breath and flexibility. Adjustable springs allow for all levels of ability. 

 

Our reformer classes are limited to 3 participants so you receive personal attention and individual guidance from our instructors. Your teacher will guide and assist you through the class, please inform them if you have any injuries or special conditions.

If you have chronic pain, are recently injured or rehabilitating from surgery please contact us about Private Pilates / Exercise Physiology Consultations.
