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.
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.
Whether you are practising on the floor or on the reformer, we want everyone to feel relaxed and welcome when they attend their Pilates session here. Suitable for all ages, we support all abilities from complete beginner upwards. Whatever your fitness levels, Pilates can improve back pain, injury, balance, posture and more. At your first session, we will discuss any issues you may have, as well as your goals. Our Physio Pilates instructors will work with you to create a bespoke plan that will achieve best results.
