Clinical Pilates


GETTING YOU MOVING & REDUCING PAIN

Clinical Pilates is a research-based rehabilitation treatment for those who have suffered from chronic musculoskeletal injury such as lower back, hip, knee or neck pain. It can be tailored to your specific needs, focusing on restoring normal movement, reducing chronic pain as well as improving posture and muscle imbalances within the body. We also offer pre- and post-pregnancy Clinical Pilates that can be tailored to your needs in the same way.

Our classes are run by a Clinical Pilates-trained Physiotherapist who has in-depth knowledge of injury, pathology, body movements and muscle function. This knowledge allows our Physiotherapist to assess each patient thoroughly and develop therapeutic and evidence-based exercise programs. These are designed to reduce pain, promote healing, prevent re-injury and improve overall mobility and function whilst specifically addressing your individual requirements.

Clinical Approach

Pre-Class Assessment

A Pre-class assessment is a necessary requirement for new members before beginning our classes. This involves a 30-minute consultation with our Physiotherapist who will get to know you and perform various assessments.

Our Physiotherapist will undertake thorough musculoskeletal assessment to ensure that he or she is aware of any factors that may influence your situation and involvement in classes. The main purpose of this is to determine the best work out for you.

Factors may include but are not limited to:

relevant medical or injury history

your strengths and weaknesses

ability level and exercise history

goals and lifestyle

Real-time Ultrasound Assessment

Where necessary, we use Real-time Ultrasound (RTUS) to determine the muscles that may need improvement and therefore target these muscles in our Clinical Pilates program.

Trupti’s classes and her special guidance keep me mobile and the aches and pains at bay. She understands and has helped me learn the stretches and exercises that focus on my particular problem areas, this knowledge always shared with an encouraging smile.

Vitality Way is a great place to treat your pain. The exercises classes are great help to improve fitness, pain management, core strengthening and overall body strengthening.

Cheng and Peter Seow

I have seen many Physiotherapists over the years, and I have to say Trupti is the best so far. I only had 3 visits with her this year, and I am seeing real results. I also started Pilates with her and that has been the best change in my life. I feel invigorated and alive after every session and now I just booked a yoga class. I can’t get enough.

Shireen Naidoo

Vitality way truly lives up to its name and the brand. The physio is passionate about great health. I am greatly satisfied with prompt and accurate treatment of my trapezius muscles, upper back and neck. The exercises prescribed were easy and very effective. The yoga and Pilates sessions were particularly useful and very unique to improve and maintain general health. Thank you for providing a truly rejuvenating experience.

FAQs

For our exercise classes

What is the difference between ‘Yoga’ and ‘Therapeutic Yoga’?

While both Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga sound similar, the key difference between the two is that Therapeutic Yoga can only be taught by a yoga therapist with the knowledge of a specific problem, experience, and intuition to help alleviate the problem or pain condition (whether it’s physical, mental, and/or spiritual). Yoga Therapist focus on their clients’ needs and may sometimes use different physical tools than traditional approach such as dowels, leg weights, and even gym balls.

How can Therapeutic Yoga help manage chronic pain?

Our Yoga Therapist can assist with managing and treating chronic pain, and recovery from injury or surgery. This is done in a systematic approach commencing with the pre-class assessment by Physiotherapist to assess client’s pain condition and establish appropriate goals, develop a practice intervention, and then teach clients to practice that intervention.

What do I need to do to be able to attend a class?

We require every client to undergo ‘Pre-Class Assessment’ prior to attending the first class and then after at least once in a year. This 30-minute assessment involves your musculoskeletal assessment including previous injury (if any) to determine the best workout for your ability level and goals.

The cost of this assessment is claimable under your Private Health Fund if you have extras covered. Rebate amount will depend on your Health Fund and level of cover. This assessment is necessary for tailor made treatment for each individual by our physiotherapist.

How much is a class?

The cost of both Physiofusion and Therapeutic Yoga is $20 per class and they run for an hour. These classes are also claimable by Private Health Fund if you are paying for an ‘extras cover’. Check what your Private Health Fund covers before booking your appointment.
