Clinical Exercise uses a combination of physiotherapy rehab and pilates based exercises to help manage your pain, address movement dysfunction, and improve your everyday or sporting performance.
Using mat and pilates equipment (reformer) we tailor an individualised program that targets your specific needs to ensure you meet your goals!
Unlike pilates, clinical exercise is a combination of physiotheraphy rehabilitation and pilates based exerccise. When people think about pilates they think “core strength”.
Clinical exercise focuses on strengthening the muscles around your trunk including your deep abdominal muscle, but it also aims to target lumbo-pelvis stability (pelvic floor, glutes) lower limb and upper body strength. Strengthening these muscles develops stability and balance throughout your whole body.
Pilates is an integrated movement system that combines the flexibility of yoga whilst strengthening the muscles you need to function at a high level. It is a low impact approach that simultaneously improves your posture, balance and core strength.
Physioward’s Clinical Pilates services are the perfect way to get you back to peak physical fitness. Our qualified physiotherapists will work with you to create an individually tailored exercise program that is based on your level of experience or specific injury needs.

We use 1:1 to develop individualised programs, identify possible areas of concern, perform objective assessment to later ensure goals are being met and to familiarise clients with the equipment.
No, our aim with the 1:1 is to familiarise our clients with the equipment and to run through how to use it. Sometimes it is safer for clients to have a few 1:1 sessions prior to moving to the group classes.
Comfortable exercise clothing, socks (with grip preferred), towel & water bottle
