Developed in the 1920’s, Pilates is a body conditioning routine that helps build flexibility, long, lean muscles, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms hips and back – but without putting pressure on the joints. It instead puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, as well as breathing to relieve stress and to allow adequate oxygen flow to muscles to develop increased core stability for the spine and deeper abdominals. It also has the benefit of improving coordination and balance, as well as weight loss! The combination of physio and specialised Pilates can not only result in a faster rehabilitation, but also increase your strength and balance to prevent these injuries from reoccurring! Our physiotherapists are qualified Clinical Pilates instructors – this means that we can specifically tailor a program to assist with your rehabilitation and fitness needs. Our on-site Pilates studio in our Campbelltown clinic utilises an array of equipment and when used in conjunction with your program, it will help to strengthen your muscles and skeletal system to prevent reoccurring injuries and improve your overall wellbeing whilst reducing your pain. Mat Workout Pilates provides a total body workout with a particular focus on the core muscle groups; the abdomen and back. A range of Pilates equipment, such as gym balls, Thera-Band and weights will be provided to use in combination with the mat to assist with your overall goals. Equipment Workout Pilates involves the use of specifically designed equipment to strengthen and lengthen the muscles, as well as aligning skeletal structures within the body. Equipment supplied includes the Trapeze Table and the Reformer. On the equipment you work with a resistance of springs at different strengths to either increase the demand of the exercise or to provide more support for your body and spine.
