THE REFORMER:

The Pilates Reformer is a single bed frame but with a sliding carriage and adjustable springs to regulate tension and resistance. These cables, bars, straps and pulleys allow exercises to be done from a variety of positions such as sitting, standing and side-lying. It allows you to work at your level and progress appropriately.

The resistance created by the pulley and spring system can provides a challenging strength and endurance workout. It can offer more resistance than what you get with just your body weight on a mat. It can produce visible results sooner.

PILATES: Introducing the 'Cadillac' or 'Trapeze Table'

You can isolate almost every single muscle group on this magnificent machine. It is an excellent tool for breaking down motion into small pieces to restore correct movement patterns.

It is a large piece of equipment with various attachments and is rarely used in large group classes. The best way to experience this machine is in a private one on one pilates session or a semi private class.

Our clinical pilates instructor will develop a tailored program that will utilise the use of this machine to help you achieve your goals.

What is Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is an intricate form of rehabilitation. It is an individually tailored treatment method in the form of physical exercises that focus on core stability, optimal posture, breathing, strength and flexibility.

How does Clinical Pilates differ from Generic Studio Pilates?

Generic Studio Pilates sessions are often run in large groups, usually seen in gyms and studios, and offer one program that is supposedly โ€œfit for allโ€.

Clinical Pilates sessions are instructed by highly qualified health professionals with post-graduate qualifications who base their program on strong evidence on managing injuries. Programs are tailored for individuals and group sizes are much smaller.

What is Back Pain?

Back pain is very common and affects people of all ages. While it generally improves in a few days, or sometimes weeks, back pain can continue for a long period.

Back pain usually feels like an ache, tension or stiffness in the back.

Several things can cause it, including a sudden movement or fall, an injury, or a medical condition. The pain is usually related to the way the bones, discs, tendons, muscles and ligaments work together.

Most people experience lower back pain at some point in their life. Around 1 in 6 Australians have back pain each year. Most are of working age, and an equal number of women and men are affected.

Back problems are a common reason for pain among younger and middle-aged adults, but they can also start early in life โ€“ between the ages of 8 and 10.

If you are worried about your back, struggling to cope with the pain, or if you have suffered from regular episodes of back pain for more than 6 weeks, book in with one of our physiotherapists.

Pregnancy related Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP)

Some women can develop pelvic pain during pregnancy. This is sometimes called PGP (Pelvic Girdle Pain) or PSD (Pubis Symphysis Dysfunction).

Some known causes may be due to hormonal changes, previous injuries or position of the baby. Symptoms: pain over pubic bone, lower back, groin or perineum area. Pain may also radiate down the legs.

How MOVE physiotherapists can help?

Getting diagnosed early can help keep the pain to a minimal. Physiotherapy aims to relieve pain, improve muscle function and improve your pelvic joint position and stability. We will provide manual hands on treatment and prescribe exercises to strengthen hips, back and pelvic floor. We will also recommend pelvic support belts to help you stay mobile.

Cervical Headache

A cervical headache is typically described as a constant dull ache that radiates from the base of the head to the forehead. It usually presents on one side of the head, occasionally may be both sides of head.

Causes may be due to poor posture, stress and previous trauma such as whiplash.

How MOVE physiotherapists can help?

Shoulder Bursitis

A bursa is a tiny fluid filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between surfaces. Inflammation of a bursa around the shoulder joint causes shoulder bursitis. A bursa can become inflamed from trauma, overuse, infection or an underlying rheumatic condition.

How MOVE physiotherapists can help?

A physical examination is conducted to test the structures involved that are causing pain. This involves shoulder range, strength and stability testing. X-rays and ultrasounds can be organised to confirm the diagnosis. We will provide hands on treatment to alleviate pain and restore movement. We will also prescribe a graduated strength and stability programme. In complex cases, we can to refer to specialists for medical management.
