Why Choose Studio Pilates?
Pilates exercises at Bassendean Physiotherapy improve aspects such as strength, flexibility, coordination and posture, with a strong focus on training your postural and stability muscles. This makes it ideal for those recovering from injuries and perfect for those looking for fitness and muscle toning.
They are a safe and effective form of exercise which is suitable for anyone of any age and of any fitness or ability.
Group sizes are very small, between 1-4 clients per Studio Pilates Class. We do this to enable close monitoring and progression of exercises. You are never alone!
We offer an individualised treatment method that addresses the underlying cause of your pain, not just the pain or injury in itself. We focus on you!
You will begin with a one-on-one consultation with a Physiotherapist for a thorough initial assessment. This includes injury history and movement analysis, and an introduction to the exercises and equipment.
Recent scientific research in the field of Physiotherapy supports the key features and principles of the method. Thus our physiotherapists have undergone extensive training so that they can use Pilates as part of the rehabilitation process.

HOW DO I START?
Studio Sessions are run daily throughout the year. Before you commence you will undergo a general health and musculoskeletal screen to ensure you are suitable for Pilates exercises. The initial assessment will be split into two parts, performed by our Physiotherapist, who will assess you and take a full injury history.
Your appointment will consists of a ‘Real Time Ultrasound’. The Real Time Ultrasound helps to identify any issues with muscle activation. From there the Physiotherapist can help teach you how to correctly activate your pelvic floor and give feedback about correct muscle activation. This will then follow by a 20 minute consultation with your Physiotherapist to discus any specialised exercises and your personalised approach to Studio Pilates.
