In order to understand your needs and design an effective individual exercise program all new Clinical Exercise and Pilates clients are required to attend an initial assessment with a Physiotherapist. This appointment will include a thorough assessment of current posture and movement patterns, as well as any previous or recurring injuries. The assessment will be a chance to define goals and develop outcome measures. If required, real time ultrasound, can be used during the assessment to assess and then educate and teach correct core muscle activation. Clients will require an additional 1:1 session to develop and teach the exercise program.

Our Clinical Exercise sessions are taught by highly qualified Physiotherapists with extra Pilates certification. If you have Private Health Insurance with Physiotherapy extras claims can be made on Clinical Exercise sessions under item code 560.
