At Back in Strength Deakin, our approach of Clinical Pilates is quite unique.In order to gain the clearest understanding of your musculoskeletal issues, we perform an extremely thorough initial examination. We assess your movement patterns, flexibility, strength of the important core and pelvic stabilisers, and also determine any “bad habits’ your body may have adopted.Depending on these findings, we will ask that you have a couple of private sessions, so to gain accurate recruitment of the specific core and other stability muscles, such as the gluteals, scapulo thoracic muscles and pelvic floor.For patients with a complex or long history of problems, they may choose to stay with private sessions in order to consolidate their learning with undivided attention from the instructor. These sessions can be booked throughout the week, including after hours and Saturday mornings. Once you have ‘found’ your core and demonstrate effective movement patterns, you can commence Clinical Pilates in our Canberra clinic. This is a specialised form of traditional Pilates, run by physiotherapists and incorporates modern, scientific research with specialised Pilates equipment. These classes use all the available Pilates equipment in the repertoire – trapeze tables, reformers, Core Align, barrels and small apparatus. We recommend Clinical Pilates for anyone with a history of low back or neck pain, musculoskeletal condition or chronic disease. In these sessions clients follow their own programme, which has been developed specifically to address individual issues.If you would like to attend a tailored program of Clinical Pilates in Canberra, simply call one of our friendly receptionists on 6282 9992 to make an appointment for a Pilates Initial Assessment today.
