One on One Clinical Pilates at Fixio

When Joseph Pilates created his new method of physical training in the 1920’s, he named it ‘Contrology’ due to the immense focus on control of the body and mind. The goal being to improve your balance, core stability, and posture while strengthening your muscles and increasing flexibility.

Pilates was developed over the course of many years, with a combination of anatomy training, acrobatics, Yoga principles, and ancient Greek and Roman methods of training all adding up to what we see as modern Pilates.

In the hands of a highly trained professional, it can also be used as a treatment for specific musculoskeletal conditions.  Unlike Pilates for fitness, one-on-one sessions of Clinical Pilates are used by qualified Physiotherapists who have completed extensive training to help treat:

  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Pre and postnatal conditions
  • Prehabilitation and rehabilitation when surgery is needed
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip and Knee pain
  • Arthritis pain
  • Poor posture

This is an unprecedented time for most Australians, but we have to remember we don’t have to do it all alone.

One-on-One Pilates instruction is safe and hygienic.

Clinical Pilates helps to increase Core strength and reduce back pain

Spine stabilisation and keeping a correct posture is essential to keeping recurring back injuries at bay.[1] Strengthening your core is the key to ensuring this process is maintained regularly. During your one-on-one  Clinical Pilates session at Fixio, your physiotherapist will focus on targeting those muscles that are most important, while bringing your attention to the control and feel of how the exercises affect your muscles to increase your own awareness of your body. Many people are not aware that core strength plays a large part in a number of everyday activities including: sitting for long periods of time, lifting weight, playing sports and even standing.[2] The more you work on and are aware of your core the less pain will suffer.
