Clinical Pilates At Physiolates Carnegie

Two clients practicing core physio and Pilates in Melbourne.

Clinical Pilates shouldn’t be confused with the Pilates sessions offered at spas and health centers. Pilates was pioneered by Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920s as a conditioning method for the mind and body. He drew upon multiple disciplines to create an entirely new technique emphasizing core strength and abdominal stability. It utilizes a holistic approach that addresses the needs of the whole body instead of isolating muscle groups.

Physiotherapy Melbourne has taken the technique a step further with its Physiolates program to prevent and manage injuries. Each program is structured to address the needs of the individual, combining Pilates and physiotherapy techniques. Physiolates tones and stretches, treats injuries, aids in the alignment of the body and reduces the risk of future injuries. The Centre also incorporates a Gymstick™ program into its Pilates classes.
