Clinical Pilates


What is clinical Pilates? How does it differ from regular Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is an advanced form of Pilates training that is meant to target specific injuries or pain and provide an individual treatment plan. When you walk into a “regular” Pilates class, you will most likely experience a generalised exercise program that is meant to increase overall strength and stability. When you walk into a Clinical Pilates consultation, you can expect a detailed assessment from a trained physiotherapist.  

Having an individualised treatment plan can be very beneficial when recovering from injury or surgery. It is also particularly helpful both before and after pregnancy, since it tends to target the deep core. 


Clinical Pilates can help Treat:

  • Pre & Post Natal
  • Back & Neck Pain

Your initial Clinical Pilates Assessment is subject to health fund claiming. All subsequent Pilates bookings are not claimable by health funds as they are considered fitness classes.

Clinical pilates is a wide umbrella term for a variety of strength and mobility exercises. This makes it the ideal workout to do if you would like a program tailored specifically to you and your abilities. Clinical pilates movements are made to elongate your muscles or extend them with resistance in different positions or movements. What you will find is that the more you practice a certain movement, you will be able to stretch further with more control as your muscles learn to tolerate the load. 


Back pain affects over 50% of pregnant women, mostly taking place in the second and third trimester due to body changes. The spine changes significantly as the baby grows in your tummy. This creates different loads on your spine and strain on your muscles to keep the little one safe.


Lower back pain is a common occurrence in the general population and is something that can become chronic if it remains untreated. But what are some symptoms besides just uncomfortable sensations in your back?
