Clinical Pilates combines therapeutic and remedial exercises to treat a specific injury or condition. It focuses on the re-training and recruitment of deep stabilising muscles (core stability) as well as improving posture, strength and flexibility. Clinical Pilates (as opposed to Fitness Pilates) identifies key issues and addresses them by applying carefully selected exercises. This ensures optimal gains whilst minimising the likelihood of aggravating the injury. Our expert practitioners will work through the idiosyncracies of your particular condition to improve and maintain function. Whether you are injured or requiring rehabilitation, Clinical Pilates can suit the long term user.
No matter what your level of activity or how you acquired your injury, at Bay Physio and Pilates, you can be confident that you will have professional and personalised care to help you return to your training regime or to meet your event targets, or to just return to your very best.

Challenging lifestyles and work practices can produce chronic symptoms of pain, stiffness, fatigue and general malaise that make it difficult to be at your best. We can identify stressors which contribute to chronic conditions and recurring symptoms and help to co-ordinate the best treatment and self-help options
The pelvic floor muscles sit at the base of the pelvis and are important for bladder and bowel continence, low back/pelvis and pelvicorgan support as well as sexual function. The pelvic floor muscles may be stretched and weakened by pregnancy, child birth, heavy lifting, chronic constipation, recurrent coughing or sneezing, high impact exercise, back/pelvic pain or pelvic surgery such as hysterectomy or may be affected by the hormonal changes during menopause. In men, prostate surgery can result in pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. Pelvic Floor and bladder retraining exercises can be prescribed to help with incontinence.
