Clinical Pilates & Movement Based Therapy in Kalgoorlie

Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a specific training program designed by physiotherapists to develop and improve muscular control of all joints throughout the body. The primary focus is to optimise muscle recruitment and efficiency during functional tasks to reduce pain, improve movement and promote a strong and healthy body.

Our Pilates Therapists are qualified in scientific and evidence-based forms of Pilates training endorsed, including DMA Clinical Pilates which is accredited by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

Clinical Pilates is highly effective for:

  • Spinal pain prevention and management
  • Sports-related strength and conditioning
  • Osteoporosis and arthritis management
  • Balance retraining
  • Antenatal and postnatal fitness
  • Injury prevention for athletes and sports people
  • General fitness and muscle toning

If you are interested in a Clinical Pilates program, an initial assessment will be undertaken to help identify areas of focus for your program. Following this you may be progressed into either individual Pilates sessions or added to a small group class. These sessions will incorporate Pilates floor, reformer and trapeze table-based exercises. Home based exercises may also be added.

Movement Based Therapy

Movement based therapy may use exercises or techniques drawn from Pilates principles, but may also include other relevant strength and conditioning exercises within your program. This therapy is a therapeutic program designed to challenge the nervous and muscular systems. It is tailored by your physiotherapist to improve specific functional movements and is actively working towards specific goals chosen in consultation with your physio. The program is also continuously monitored and adapted to optimise the therapeutic effect.

Movement based therapy is highly effective for:

  • Spinal pain management
  • Sports-related strength and conditioning
  • Rehabilitation post-surgery or traumatic injury
  • Osteoporosis and arthritis management
  • Balance retraining
  • Antenatal and postnatal fitness

When commencing this form of treatment, together with your physiotherapist, you will develop goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time based. Following this your physio will conduct a thorough assessment and you will begin individualised sessions which may incorporate “Pilates informed exercises” as well as those using weights, cables and resistance bands.

When appropriate, you have the option of being progressed into small group classes. Alternatively, a home or gym-based program can also be developed specifically for you, which your physio will monitor your progress with periodical check-ups.
