Clinical Pilates Journey

Clinical Physio (formerly Clinical Pilates) has been used for decades for injury rehabilitation and general fitness.

At Paramount Physiotherapy, Clinical Physio sessions are conducted by Pilates-trained Physiotherapists.

This means:

  • A comprehensive physiotherapy assessment is completed before providing your program
  • Your injuries and/or conditions are taken into consideration before prescribing exercises
  • Your classes are monitored by university-trained health professionals
  • You can use Private Health Insurance to claim your classes
  • If necessary, our team will liaise with other members in your healthcare team


Individual & Group Classes

Clinical Physio (Clinical Pilates) sessions are offered in:

  • Individual (1-on-1)
  • Group classes (1-on-4)

For someone who would prefer more focus and attention on their movements, and may be in the early stage of their rehab, individual sessions are usually the best option.

For someone who may be in their mid to late stage rehab, or may already have experience with Pilates, semi-private group classes is a better option.

Clinical Physio classes will include a combination of mat, reformer, trapeze and general exercise.


Clinical Pilates vs Reformer Pilates

Clinical Pilates is usually for the person who is returning from injury, pre- & post-natal, or someone who wants to exercise in a controlled environment under the supervision of a Physiotherapist.

The programs are tailored and written by a Physiotherapist specific to your current injury, conditions and/or concerns.

Reformer Pilates is a general Pilates class where everyone works through the same movements, targeting the whole body through exercise progressions. 

As our Reformer Pilates have a maximum number of 6 people per class, it allows our Pilates instructors to focus on your movement and technique, and allows them to correct form where necessary.

If you feel you are more suited to Reformer Pilates, head over to our Reformer Pilates page to find out more.
