What is Clinical Pilates?
The difference between Clinical Pilates (CP) and regular Pilates is that with CP, you will have a bespoke programme written for you by a qualified physiotherapist who is also a trained Clinical Pilates instructor.
During your CP session, you will be given exercises to do based on your specific needs. This is usually a prehabilitation or rehabilitation programme based on an injury or condition that will be discussed at an initial 30-minute Assessment ahead of you starting your block of CP classes
What to bring/ what to wear
Where CP is not the most cardio-based class, it can definitely be strenuous and most of our clients feel that wearing activewear is the most comfortable and practical for them. Please also wear either normal socks or grippy yoga/ pilates socks.
A bottle of water is recommended as well as a notebook for anyone wishing to make a note of exercises to do at home.
All equipment and mats are supplied there is a changing room/ showering facilities in the EDA gym which houses the Physio Effect Clinic and Studio at Borron Street.
What to expect from the Clinical Pilates class
There will be a maximum of 5 clients, all working on their individual prescribed programmes.
Clinical Pilates sessions are one-hour appointments
When you arrive for your session, please inform your Physiotherapist Pilates instructor of any important information including changes to your condition/ health, any new goals and how you may have responded to your previous class.
We use a variety of equipment from different sized balls to resistance bands and our Pilates Reformer
The best outcomes for our attendees are when the sessions are attended as regularly as possible, so with a block booking, you get the most consistent service and the greatest chance of rehabilitating your injury.
Your classes will be booked when you sign up for your block.
