Prehabilitation

« Back

Whether the result of an injury, an operation, diagnosis of a medical condition or even if you have unexplained aches and pains then Pilates rehabilitation often know as Clinical Pilates is the ideal way forward for you. For some clients private sessions are the most effective way forward. At the initial consultation we will look at your medical history and where necessary liaise with your medical practitioner. We will use our expertise to access your body and tailor-make a programme to correct your muscle imbalances and strengthen your core.

For other clients it is suitable for them to join our Rehabilitation group classes straight away. Each class has a maximum of 6 participants so you experience the best personal attention possible in a group setting. Please arrange an initial Pilates consultation here at the studio so that we can assess your needs and your suitability for these classes.

Physiotherapy

Here at Pilates Works Studio we have two Pilates teachers, Jeremy Davis MCSP SRP and Katie Wratten MCSP SRP, who are also fully qualified chartered Physiotherapists. If you are injured, have recently had surgery or have a condition that needs special consideration they will offer you an initial consultation and advise you on the best way forward.

This might initially be some physiotherapy sessions followed by some prescriptive 1:1 Clinical Pilates sessions. This is because Pilates is extremely beneficial once physiotherapy treatment has been completed to make a full recovery. Both Jeremy and Katie work tirelessly to stay on top of the latest clinical research to ensure you undertake the most effective exercise routine. They will liaise with your health care professional to ensure there is synergy in your rehabilitation programme. This dual approach of physiotherapy and private Pilates sessions will facilitate the best recovery possible and a  maintenance programme of Pilates classes thereafter should ensure you stay injury and pain free. 

Back Pain

You are probably reading this as you are experiencing back pain. Rest assured you are not alone with 80% of the population suffering from back pain at some time in their life.

The good news is back pain can often be prevented, managed or eradicated by Pilates. Indeed the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence advocate that people with back pain should be actively encouraged to embark on a structured exercise programme over a prescribed period of time to help manage or eradicate their back pain. Here at the studio we are in a unique position to be able to offer Rehabilitation classes taught by our in-house chartered Physiotherapists. These specialist classes have been developed by them to support specific rehabilitation of the spine.

Ideal for those patients still undergoing manual therapy these classes also provide a transitory phase for those whose manual therapy is complete. The focus is to get you back to a normal exercise regime and a normal Pilates class as soon as possible.

Upper Body

If you are suffering from an upper body or upper quadrant condition then a Pilates programme under the watchful eye of our highly trained rehabilitation instructors is what you need.

Have you been told you have a shoulder impingement? Are you prone to aches and pains at the base of your neck? Maybe your shoulders hurt after a few hours at your desk or perhaps you are struggling with stiffness and pain in your back. At Pilates Works Studio we have considerable experience dealing with upper quadrant issues and have prescriptive corrective exercises to address these conditions really effectively.

We suggest that it is best to book a private initial consultation so we can assess your needs. If you are in the early stages of rehabilitation and your symptoms are highly irritable it might be prudent to continue with private sessions until your condition has improved. For some clients however our Rehabilitation classes would be a perfectly safe route to take.

Lower Body

Are you suffering from an issue in your lower body or Lower quadrant? This refers to the parts of your body from your pelvis downwards to your hips, knees, ankles and feet.

Have you got a hip injury such as a trochanter bursitis or a labral tear? Maybe you have had a hip replacement. Are you are getting knee or foot pain during running or skiing? Perhaps you might have had an anterior cruciate ligament repair. Just as with upper quadrant issues in many cases it is best to book a private initial consultation so we can assess your needs. If you are in the early stages of rehabilitation and your symptoms are highly irritable it might be prudent to continue with private sessions until your condition has improved. For some clients however our Rehabilitation classes would be a perfectly safe route to take.

Discussing these options with one of our specialists on the team will ensure you make an educated choice of how to proceed.
