Pilates, Strength & Conditioning Programs

City Edge Physio believes in a multi disciplinary approach to rehabilitation which often requires an integration of other services into the treatment plan. This often means the physios at City Edge are working closely with other health service providers or fitness professionals to provide each patient with the highest possible standard of care that is required on an individual basis.
 
 
 

Pilates at City Edge

Pilates at City Edge is rehabilitative in nature and are 45 minute 1:1 sessions run by a physiotherapist. These sessions are reformer based and are operated in our City Edge Clinic gym. Call us to book your Pilates sessions with us today, health fund rebates are available.

These sessions aim to:

  • Teach and obtain adequate motor control techniques/patterns that have been altered or disengaged as the result of an injury. These basic patterns of motor and core control are important to regain from an injury recovery purpose and can be useful prior to resuming studio Pilates.
  • Prevent injuries when returning to sport and activity by restoring a pre-injury level of stability and core control through the spine, pelvis and hip transferring to the lower limbs.

Strength & Conditioning at City Edge

Treatment of injuries require muscle strengthening to assist the regeneration of the injury back to pre-injury state. For patients who have had injuries that require a lengthy rehab period (e.g. ACL rehab, stress fractures) not only is there loss of strength from the area of injury but the overall deconditioning that occurs can often be injury risk factor for further injury once returning to activity. These patients may  require a more advanced overall strength and conditioning program to prepare the body for return to all activity, sport and competition.
