What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates is a fantastic form of rehabilitative exercise aimed at whole body conditioning and improving your core stability and strength. Being both Osteopaths and Rehabilitative Pilates instructors, we apply our large amount of clinical experience to both your hands on treatment and your rehabilitative exercises.
Will my treatment be covered by my private health?
We support HICAPS and can process your claim at the same time as payment. Do check with your private health care that Osteopath or Myotherapy treatments are covered and to what extent.
Why is my first appointment longer?
We allow approximately 1 hour for the inital assessment which provides our practitioners time to thoroughly collect and discuss all necessary information of your history and present conditions. The time will enable your treating osteopath to make an assessment of your condition, discuss required treatment plan and also commence treatment to assist you in your recovery.
Do you treat pregnancy in women?
Yes, osteopaths do treat patients throughout pregnancy. Osteopathic treatment can alleviate discomfort from musculoskeletal problems that arise during pregnancy. Our osteopaths may also recommend Clinical Pilates which is a safe, low-impact, pregnancy-friendly workout that assists in strengthening your pelvic floor and core muscles, enhancing your flexibility and balance and helping to prevent pain associated with pregnancy. Working on your pelvic floor and core muscles is also important to reduce the risk of abdominal separation and incontinence after the birth of your child.
Do I need a referral from a GP?
