What is Pilates?

pilates-classes-sunshine-coastPilates is an exercise method which aims to improve core (mid-section) stability through the activation of specific muscle groups and correct posture. These exercises develop muscles which create a “brace-like” hold around the spine and pelvis, thus protecting the body from injury.

Clinical Pilates can be of benefit to people suffering from:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Hip and groin injuries
  • Pre and post natal women
  • Poor posture
  • Sports injuries
  • People with no pain or injury for general wellness
  • Osteoporosis

Why choose us?

There are many different types of instructors and locations offering Pilates on the Sunshine Coast.  By choosing to attend Coastal Physiotherapy, you are choosing:

  • A qualified physiotherapist with Pilates training
  • The ability to confidently determine any biomechanical or muscular inefficiency that may be impacting your ability to perform exercises
  • Educate you in relation to what each exercise means for your body and your function
  • Ability to tailor your exercises to your body type, your skill level and fitness ability
  • If have an injury, you can be confident that the choice of  exercise is safe and injury appropriate
  • An excellent understanding of the different levels of exercise.

Too often, instructors who are not experienced in human anatomy will provide exercises that are too challenging for people, which can result in injury.

Why would I benefit from a 1:1 assessment?

sunshine-coast-pilates-classesAn initial 1:1 assessment is extremely beneficial before starting a home based Pilates program or joining a Pilates class.  This allows the physiotherapist to complete a musculo-skeletal screen and medical health history.  In addition, the physiotherapist will work with you on a 1:1 basis to teach you the foundational exercises required in order for the exercises to be of benefit and enjoyable. 

Pilates will be of little benefit if not done correctly, and it is not possible to do it correctly without first learning the basics.

To schedule an appointment, please call 5443 6634 or book online through this website.

Cost:

  • Initial Assessment $89 – includes assessment and home pilates program
