Physio-Pilates

 

For many, back pain can be caused by poor mechanics of the spine or by a weak back and abdominal muscles. For others, a job that requires heavy lifting or sitting all day can be a major influence. Medical problems, such as scoliosis and arthritis, can also cause back pain. Whatever the cause, a carefully designed Pilates program — one that focuses on strengthening the core and back, improving posture, optimizing joint stability, and correcting muscular imbalances — can help you alleviate your pain, regain motion, speed up your recovery, and build the strength that helps you prevent reinjury.

 

 

ASSESsMENT

The Physiotherapist will diagnose your injury and any biomechanical problems that may be contributing to it. This will include a full postural assessment and a biomechanical assessment of the joints and muscles affected. The goal is to find the root cause of a more chronic condition and, for acute injuries, a specific diagnosis and plan. The Physiotherapist will discuss the findings and treatment plan with you. Please wear clothing that allows us to see the area affected. 

Assessments are 60 minutes and cost $130

physio-pilates session

Individual sessions are either 30 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on the condition treated. For very acute injuries, the Physiotherapist may recommend a shorter, 30-minute session. Sessions typically include hands-on Physiotherapy techniques, including joint and soft tissue mobilizations. Most sessions also include modified Pilates exercises that target the affected muscles, using the equipment in our semi-private space.

RMT Pilates

 

RMT-Pilates is a powerful combination of manual therapy treatment followed by Rehabilitative Pilates, ensuring the effectiveness of the RMT treatment by improving movement patterns, creating long term effects to alleviate pain and strengthen the body.  Medical conditions, such as arthritis and scoliosis, and trauma or accident induced injuries can limit our daily activities due to pain. Whatever the cause of your pain, a carefully designed RMT-Pilates program will ensure a speedier recovery, and move you towards a stronger and more efficient body, improving activity and everyday life.

 

What should I expect during a session?

The first one hour session will be an initial assessment. It’s a time for the practitioner to learn about you. Subsequent one-on-one sessions run 45-60 min in length, depending on the desired effect of treatment. The sessions will combine manipulative soft tissue release and joint mobilization with Pilates exercises to strengthen and stabilize the manipulative work.  Expect to use classical Pilates props and machinery like flex bands, fitness circles, foam rollers, the reformer, cadillac and stability chair to aid in the exercise portion of your rehabilitative process.
