We asked Ben Dansie, Principal Physiotherapist at our Eatons Hill clinic to tell us a bit more about Pilates, how you will benefit from a class and what our functional core strength classes include.
What are functional core strength classes?
“Functional core strength classes at North West Physio are led by one of our qualified physiotherapists and incorporate a range of exercises tailored to your health needs and goals.
We know our patients have loved our Pilates classes, and even with the rebate changes in April 2019, our functional core strength classes will continue to include evidence based pilates exercises.”
What is Pilates?
“Pilates is a form of exercise which consists of a low impact muscular strength, endurance, flexibility and core-based movements. People often consider Pilates to be used mainly for exercise, however it has become common practice for physiotherapists to incorporate Pilates into their treatment plans as a rehabilitation and long-term maintenance tool for their patients.”
“Evidence based Pilates exercises are an integral part of our functional core strengthening classes.”
What happens in a physio led Pilates class?
“You will meet our physiotherapist in our purpose-built Pilates room and spend the next 45-50 mins completing a personalised circuit plan utilising the principles of Joseph Pilates. All classes are unique and will be tailored depending on who attends on the day. You’ll do a mix of basic floor/mat work, reformer, Wanda chair and other strengthening poses that include physio balls, hand and foot weights, Pilates rings and various other pieces of equipment.”
I haven’t attended a class before, does it matter if I have no experience?
“Not at all. Our classes cater for all ages and fitness levels. We have a wonderful community following in these classes who will make you feel welcomed and comfortable through your Pilates journey. Please note that you will need to undergo a Pilates Assessment with one of our physiotherapists prior to joining a class.”
What is a Pilates Assessment?
“Our physio’s meet with each participant beforehand at a “Pilates assessment”. In this assessment we introduce you to the physiotherapist running your class and at this time they will determine if you are suitable for Pilates.
They will also ask a series of questions to understand your goals for our classes. We will build on our knowledge from this assessment to tailor the Pilates circuit to meet your needs. So, whether you are trying it for the first time, or you are an avid Pilates fan, your program will be tailored to your exact needs.”
What benefits will I see from these classes?
“You will gain confidence using a low impact form of exercise which is an excellent stepping stone to returning to more rigorous exercise. But you will also notice an increase in muscle strength and tone, isolate and strengthen areas of weakness to correct pain/weaknesses, improve flexibility and improve your balance and control.”
Can I still claim these classes on my private health fund?
“As of 1 April 2019 changes have come into effect
