Pilates for Rehabilitation

At Karaka Physiotherapy & Pilates all of our sessions are run by a Physiotherapist and incorporate the use of the Reformer, Trapeze, Wunda-Chair and Barrel. Each client receives a programme best suited to their prior exercise or experience making our Pilates sessions suitable for those recovering from injury or just wanting to add to their exercise programme.

Physiotherapists study muscle and joint anatomy and physiology, therefore they have the expertise required to effectively prescribe Pilates for people with and without pain or injury. Pilates with a Physiotherapist improves core stability to help manage and prevent low back and neck pain, enhances postural control, body awareness and flexibility, helps to reduce the risk of pain or re-injury and strengthens and tones the muscles. Pilates is also a great way to exercise before and after pregnancy.

Regardless of whether you are recovering from spinal surgery or trying to build better stability to improve your running, your exercise is tailored, graduated and reassessed to ensure you reach your goals

We offer a choice of private sessions and group sessions, conveniently located in Karaka at two locations.

Pilates with a Physiotherapist entitles you to claim your sessions under “Physiotherapy” with ACC.
