Pilates & Performance Physiotherapy Classes
Your long term management solution from pain

Pilates & Performance Physiotherapy Classes

Some of the benefits of pilates training include:

  • Strengthening deep postural muscles to help stabilize the spine
  • Improvement of postural symmetry, thus decreasing wear and tear resulting from uneven stresses on the intervertebral joints and discs.
  • Increased flexibility, which can improve joint range of motion
  • Functional retraining to promote integration of core stabilization with extremity movement
  • Improved body awareness (Bernado, 2007)
  • Improved quality of life (Cruz-Ferreira et al.,2011)
  • Decrease falls risk
  • Functional rehabilitation for return to work/ sport

Initial Consultation (45 minutes; individual)

On your first visit to the clinic, you will be introduced to your clinical pilates instructor. At Results Physiotherapy, all our instructors are APA accredited physiotherapists. We have a thorough understanding of musculoskeletal injury treatment through pilates& we will work directly with you to develop an optimal program to get you functioning to the best of your ability.

Your first pilates session will include the following:

  • Discussion of previous injuries
  • Discussion of functional limitations
  • Objective assessment of joint range of motion & functional activities
  • Muscle strength assessment
  • Core muscle assessment
  • Introduction to basic pilates exercises& breathing techniques
  • Reassessment of functional activity after performance of pilates exercises
  • Goal setting
  • Establishing a bias direction & side for further programming

Subsequent Pilates Sessions (45 minutes; max. 3 people per session)

After a treatment bias has been selected, your physiotherapist will work through your program with you over the duration of the session. The focus of these sessions is quality of movement & movement dissociation. Technique will be corrected as required so you obtain maximal benefit out of your sessions. Each session will consist of matwork as well as equipment-based exercises on the reformer, trapeze table & barrel. Upon completion of your session, you may also be given some exercises to practice at home.


Every 4-6 weeks, your physiotherapist will reassess your functional limitations & objective outcome measures in order to monitor your progress. You & your physiotherapist may also set new goals to keep you motivated.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

You should wear something you feel comfortable exercising in (eg. leggings/shorts & a T-shirt). You should also wear a pair of socks. We sell non-slip pilates socks at reception.

What should I bring?

You will need to bring a towel & a water bottle. It may also be helpful to bring any recent scan results to your initial consultation.

Do I need previous pilates experience to participate?

Not at all! The benefit of our individually-tailored pilates programs is that we can target your specific program to your experience & fitness level.

How many times a week should I come?

That is up to you. Somewhere between 1-3 times per week is standard.

How much does a session cost?

An initial pilates session costs $95& subsequent sessions cost $54. However, if you buy a 10-session pass up front, you get a discount. You may also claim your pilates sessions through your private health insurance.

Can I still participate if I have a current injury?

That depends on what type of injury you have sustained. As your initial pilates consultation is individual, your physiotherapist will assess your suitability & if needs be, certain exercises or patterns of movement can be avoided to prevent onset of pain.
