Our physiotherapists have been trained in Pliates through the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI).
This method is based on research that has shown that specific re-training of the core muscles reduces the reoccurance of low back pain (LBP). Further studies found that muscle recovery is not automatic after the resolution of LBP. In healthy individuals these core muscles activate prior to limb movements to provide postural support to the lumber spine.
This form of pilates consists of a progressive repertoire of mat based exercises designed specifically for re-training correct activation of the core muscles. It includes exercises to improve spinal mobility, flexibility of the key trunk and lower limb muscles, body awareness and postural awareness.
Here at Progressive Physiotherapy we offer Pilates as part of rehabilitation. However, we have very close links with Wantage Pilates Studio.
