At Central Performance, we understand how debilitating injuries or chronic issues like back, hip and pelvis pain can be. We also know that starting something new can be daunting. That’s why we’re excited to offer you a complimentary come-and-try session of Clinical Pilates at our Surry Hills clinic, allowing you to experience its transformative benefits first-hand.

Recurrent pain or long-term injuries like back pain, hip pain or pelvic girdle pain can be caused by various factors including muscle imbalance, previous injuries, poor motor (movement) control and weak muscles. Unlike acute pain, which typically resolves within a few days or weeks with physio, recurrent or chronic pain persists over time or comes-and-goes, often becoming a long-term issue that can significantly impact your day-to-day life.

How Can Clinical Pilates Help?

Clinical Pilates is run by Physiotherapists with in-depth knowledge of anatomy, pathology and rehabilitation exercise prescription. They offer a holistic approach to managing recurrent and chronic pain through Clinical Pilates by targeting the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction. This includes:

Research shows that your deep core muscles (namely your transverse abdominis, pelvic floor muscles, diaphragm and multifidus) are vital to achieve support and stability for your spine and pelvis. In people with low back pain and pelvic pain these muscles are not as strong as they should be. A founding principle of Clinical Pilates is to restore correct activation and co-ordination of these muscles, and then rebuild strength to support your back and pelvis.

Clinical Pilates can reduce your pain by improving your movement mechanics and co-ordination. Improving the co-ordination of your muscles during movement reduces the chance of abnormal or compensatory movement patterns that can contribute to pain.

Tight muscles and restricted range of motion can exacerbate your pain. Clinical Pilates includes mobility exercises and controlled movements to improve flexibility, relieve tension and reduce discomfort.

A great feature of Clinical Pilates is that is involves a wide range of exercises that allow you to progress easily from gentle movements through to more challenging exercises. This helps you to build confidence in your body’s ability to exercise and become strong again.
