Exercise therapy involves the prescription of personalised therapeutic exercises following a detailed assessment by a physiotherapist. These exercises aim to:

  • Decrease or prevent pain

  • Strengthen and tone specific muscles

  • Increase joint range of movement and flexibility

  • Improve cardiovascular and pulmonary function

The primary goal is to restore functional activities, prevent the recurrence of diseases, and improve the quality of life. 
 

Key Points of Exercise Therapy

  • Individualised Approach: Tailored exercises based on a thorough assessment of the patient's condition.

  • Physiotherapist Supervision: Exercises are performed under the instruction and supervision of a physiotherapist.

  • Active Participation: Requires active involvement and long-term commitment from the patient to achieve optimal results.

  • Detailed Instructions: Our physiotherapists provide comprehensive guidance on the type, duration, frequency, and goals of the exercises.

Clinical
Pilates

Clinical Pilates is an exercise system developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates. It focuses on developing a strong "core" through controlled, coordinated movements and rhythmic breathing. This exercise method is now widely used in physiotherapy as part of rehabilitation programs.

What is Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates targets the deep postural muscles in the abdominal, spine, shoulder, and pelvic regions. Proper control of these core muscles supports and stabilises the spine, maintains good posture, prevents injuries, and improves performance in sports and daily activities. Pilates exercises can be performed on mats, therapeutic balls, or specialised equipment like the Pilates Reformer.

Benefits of Clinical Pilates
  • Strengthens Core Muscles: Enhances the strength of deep core muscles.

  • Improves Mobility and Flexibility: Increases joint mobility and soft tissue flexibility.

  • Relieves Pain: Helps alleviate acute back pain and chronic neck and back pain syndromes.

  • Prevents Back Pain: Reduces the likelihood of recurring episodes of back pain.

  • Corrects Posture: Aids in maintaining and correcting body posture.
