Physiolates

 

What is Physiolates?

Physiolates is therapeutic exercise that is tailored to your specific needs and supervised by a physiotherapist. Physiolates draws from the principles of Clinical Pilates, strength & conditioning, and acute injury rehabilitation.

What are the benefits of Physiolates?

Some benefits of physiolates include:

  • Building core stability; posture, balance, and control

  • Teaching muscle coordination through gentle movement 

  • Increasing muscle strength, length, and flexibility

  • Promote breathing control and optimal body movement patterns. 

What is the difference between Pilates and Physiolates?

Pilates has become increasingly popular in the community and is now offered by many gyms and fitness centres. Unfortunately these classes are not suitable for everyone, particularly if you are currently injured or in pain. These classes often have several people attending, meaning little individual attention is given to participants. Generic exercises are taught by instructors who are not physiotherapists. This “one size fits all” approach can, at best, mean you do not fulfil your potential with Pilates or, at the worst, lead to further injury.

Physiolates is an adaptation of Pilates incorporating both Physiotherapy and Pilates techniques. Physiolates will be different for each person. Our Physiotherapists utilise their knowledge of injury and pathology to devise a programme that is both safe and specifically targeted to an individual’s problem areas and capabilities. Targeted, therapeutic exercise programmes led by physiotherapists have been shown to reduce pain and improve the function in people with both acute injuries and with chronic pain.

Who is Physiolates suitable for?

Physiolates is appropriate for all fitness levels, and is beneficial in :

  • Back and neck pain

  • Chronic/ Persistent pain 

  • Headaches

  • Arthritis (such as Osteoarthritis)

  • Whiplash

  • Antenatal and postnatal pain

  • Postural problems

  • Pelvic and hip pain

  • Post-operative rehabilitation

  • Work injuries

  • Neurological conditions, such as stroke or Parkinson’s disease

What next?

Before participating in a Physiolates program  an individual assessment with the physiotherapist is required. This will be to assess your past injury history and current fitness levels which is then used to design a program tailored to your specific health goals. The class is undertaken in a group setting of up to 3 other participants where the physiotherapist will closely monitor you and grade the exercises to be safe while appropriately challenging.

What does it cost?

A Physiolates group consultation (50 mins duration) costs $49 a session.

A bulk pack of 12 sessions, which includes a 1:1 review as the final session costing $504 or $42 per session.

Evening classes and classes running on Saturday come at a rate of $528 for a pack of 12.

Physiolates is claimable on private health insurance extras, and we are able to directly claim the benefit for you with HICAPS.
