We are excited to be offering Clinical Pilates at our Envision Physiotherapy Multidisciplinary Clinic. If you are under the care of one of our amazing Physiotherapists, you may be eligible to have your Pilates covered through your extended health plan.
What is Clincal Pilates and how is it different than my sessions at the Studio?
Clinical Pilates at Envision Physiotherapy is a goal directed, rehabilitation program outlined and overseen by one of our physiotherapists. While our Movement Studio Instructors work at the Clinic, they act as Rehab Assistants to the physiotherapists.
Clinical Pilates has a longstanding history in Australia and is driven by the most current scientific knowledge relating to the spine, core stability and finding avenues to train functional movement patterns in order to achieve our best, happiest, pain-free selves. Recognizing that movement dysfunction tends to lead to pathology or injury, and vice versa, our integrated approach to recovery aims to progress static stability into the dynamic range, which is the range we live in.
Research done over the past two decades has radically improved the quality of results physiotherapy client's enjoy when Pilates is integrated into their treatment plan.
