Why is Clinical Pilates so good for you?

Leanne Hughes Physiotherapist Pilates Exercise | Inspire Dee Why | Pilates Studio on the Northen Beaches
Clinical Pilates exercises are designed to activate the stabilising or supportive muscles of the body that surround our joints. This decreases the “wear and tear” on your spine and peripheral joints, keeping your joints and posture healthy and stable.

Why do you we need healthy, stable joints? Healthy stable joints are pain free and move with ease. No clicking, popping, grinding or pain with movement. Stable joints prevent many injuries that can occur in sports, outdoor and daily activities.

What is the benefit of a Physiotherapist run class?
Physiotherapists are the leaders in research, knowledge and education of stability muscles (including “core” muscles).

The word “core” is commonly used to advertise products and classes. Unfortunately, it is often used incorrectly, with no specific client training, explanation and poor execution. 

What most people don’t realise is that “core” abdominal exercises, push-up’s, sit-up’s and planks performed poorly and without knowledge can harm and injure your body over time. 

At Inspire Physiotherapy and Pilates we believe that: 

  1. It is the quality of each exercise performed that matters, not the quantity. Don’t waste your time training poor habits that will negatively effect your body long term. Understand why you are performing each exercise and execute it correctly. Make every exercise benefit you. Make every exercise worth your time and effort.
  2. You must Feel Better walking out of every class than when you walked in. Walk in with stiffness? Pain? Fatigued? Our goal is to have you walking out feeling relaxed, centred and energised, with more joint movement and less pain. 

This is how we rate the success of each class for our clients.

What will I learn in the Clinical Pilates classes?

  • how your muscles and joints function
  • why and how to perform exercises correctly 
  • Daily and exercise techniques to prevent injury
  • home exercises for self-care

What is the benefit of small group classes?

  • exercises can be tailored specifically to meet your bodies needs and goals
  • Cost effective compared to one-on-one sessions
  • Fun environment where you can exercise with like minded, health conscious class mates

Why do I need an Initial Pilates assessment before term starts?

No two people are the same.  This assessment introduces your Physiotherapist to you and vice versa. 

Your Physiotherapist will ask a series of questions to determine

  • your general health
  • Previous injuries/ surgeries
  • current medications
  • your short and long term goals

Your Physiotherapist will ask you to perform some simple strengthening and stabilising exercises to determine

  • your joint range of movement
  • your muscle strengths and weaknesses
  • your body awareness
  • your balance and joint stability

You will leave with one or two basic exercises to prepare you for the course start and knowing your “cue” for deep abdominal activation.
