The Clinical Pilates program always begins with an assessment. This is a 40 minute session in which one of our Physiotherapists will determine which exercises will work best for you.
This involves determining which direction your body prefers to move in, and your current level of balance, stability and muscle activity. To assist with establishing specific muscle activity, the session may include the use of Real Time Ultrasound, which will allow our Physiotherapists to look at how well the deep muscles of you back and abdomen are working.
Once your specific exercises have been established, you can begin taking part in supervised sessions in the Clinical Pilates studio. These sessions are one hour long and are fully supervised by one of our physiotherapists, who assess your technique to ensure the exercises are being performed correctly and answer any questions you may have. A maximum of three participants can attend a supervised session.
Once you feel confident and competent with your specific program, you can advance to an independent program, where you will be able to use our studio and its equipment at regular intervals on your own. A Physiotherapist will regularly monitor your process and prescribe more advanced exercises as you progress.
Complete Wellness Physiotherapy also offers Clinical Pilates Memberships, details of which can be obtained from our front desk staff.
