Pilates is often used in conjunction with physiotherapy as a means of treating a variety of injuries, particularly those of the neck and back. There is strong evidence to suggest that Pilates can not only improve many musculoskeletal issues but also prevent injuries.

Here at Pro-Active Physio Pilates, we have a wealth of experience in Pilates, helping people of all ages and abilities to retrain and recruit stabilising muscles, as well as regain balance and stability in deep postural muscles of the body.

There is strong evidence to support the use of therapeutic exercise in the management of patients with injuries, especially of patients with lower back pain.

Although Pilates can be extremely beneficial for patients with certain injuries, it is also advantageous for everyone regardless of age or ability. Studies suggest that regular Pilates practice can help improve overall posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.

Reformer Pilates

We have state-of-the-art equipment to help our patients excel recovery. A reformer apparatus has a bed-like frame with a platform that rolls back and forth and springs used for adjustable resistance. Your instructor will direct you as you move through the relevant movements, which help achieve muscle strength in isolated areas of the body. This equipment is great for patients who are recovering from an injury, as it can be adjusted to suit all abilities.
