PhysioEx is the name we give the individualised exercise classes we provide.
We used to call these Pilates classes, because amongst other things we used Pilates equipment for rehabilitation exercise classes.
Before commencing you will have a full assessment and goal setting session with your Physio, who will then set you up with your own individualised program of exercises.
Each PhysioEx class of up to 6 people will be fully supervised by a Physio who will monitor all participants who are each working on their own exercise programs during that time.
As Physio’s we always prescribe some form of exercise as treatment to maximise your recovery and to get you back to the things you want to do, as well as to prevent debility and recurrence of injuries.
PhysioEx classes utilise many different types of equipment from treadmill/bike, weights, Pilates equipment (reformer, mat, trapeze table etc), mat/floor exercises, foam rollers and stretching.
Pilates is the name for a particular form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates – in the early to mid 1900’s that uses a specific style of movements and Pilates equipment.
In Australia you cannot receive any health insurance rebates for Pilates classes.
For PhysioEx classes loose flexible clothing, a T-shirt or loose track pants, shorts, or leggings suitable for exercising are required so that you’re able to move well. Socks are required for hygiene reasons, we have a range of grip socks available for purchase.
