Why do I need a physio consult before joining Clinical Pilates classes?

Author: Naz Norian

Can I skip the introduction class?
I’ve done Pilates before, do I need to see a physio again?
I have no pain, why do I need an assessment?

These are the types of questions clients ask us frequently. We thought we should nip it in the butt once and for all and answer all your questions around WHY an initial physiotherapy consultation is vital as a part of your recovery journey.

At Movement Laboratory we are strategic with the service that we provide. It has been tested and retested and the feedback speaks for itself. A winning concept in our eyes that benefits practitioners and clients.

An initial physiotherapy consultation starts with the physiotherapist gathering all the necessary information about your body and its movement capacity. The assessment reveals details as to how successful you may be in a group setting and whether a Pilates class will benefit your specific needs. From there our team looks to to a 3 stage pyramid. We address any mobility issues, then address stability and relearning movement patterns before moving into the last stage and top of the pyramid which is strength and meeting your goals! These clues give your physio the necessary information to structure a programme that will suit your individual needs as nobody looks or moves the same. It is also the base for progressions and modifications.

If you’re new to Pilates or have decided to start your strength and conditioning journey with us book in for an initial physiotherapy consultation and lets get you started toward reaching your goals together.

This place was amazing I was so happy about how I was treated and looked after . I liked how everything was explained to me and it made sense . I was grateful when I told my symptoms to the lovely lady she knew what I was talking about and ways we could improve things and that I wasn’t alone. Also I felt that the environment was pleasant calm and relaxing which is what I needed. I have already taken a few work cards to pass out to some ladies I know . Thank you 😊 Looking forward to moving forward

Anastasia is a miracle worker! I'm a keen runner and I started seeing her a few months ago after a couple of broken backs and a (new) torn hammy. She diagnosed my hammy problem quickly and efficiently, provided immediate relief through some deep massage to allow me to survive a few more important runs before my wedding (honeymoon = rest), and has helped me rebuild through focused strength work and home exercises. She obviously cares about her patients and enjoys helping them achieve their goals. I'm now running regularly and pain free again! Thanks Anastasia 🙂
