What is Rehabilitation Pilates?
At Perfect Balance Rehabilitation Centre our physiotherapists are Rehabilitation Pilates instructors and believe that Pilates can be a magnificent tool to promote agility, strength and posture. Rehabilitation Pilates can be used to address muscle imbalances, decreased movement and flexibility, poor posture, poor movement patterns, and repetitive overload.
Physiotherapists often use Rehabilitation Pilates as part of the treatment for a patient recovering from an injury.
What are the benefits of Rehabilitation Pilates?
Pilates exercise promotes a balanced musculature throughout the whole body by strengthening the pelvic floor and core muscles.
Pilates exercise also promotes spinal, pelvic and peripheral alignment which is vital to the normal functioning of our body. This all included helps to promote postural alignment and normal movement of the body to avoid the risk of injury.
Who is Rehabilitation Pilates for?
Rehabilitation Pilates has not been designed for just one type of patient. Whether you have just recently delivered a baby, or are a desk worker, a cross fit athlete, a triathlete or a regular gym-goer, Rehabilitation Pilates can be modified to suit your needs.
If you are looking to increase your mobility, increase your pelvic floor and core strength, improve alignment and posture; Rehabilitation Pilates might just be what you need.
What to expect from Rehabilitation Pilates at Perfect Balance?

Prior to starting the rehabilitation Pilates you must book a one-to-one assessment with one of our Physiotherapists so they can work with you to advise the best treatment plan.
As a man, I initially laughed off the idea that Pilates was something that could challenge me. I can now say that I was wrong. Pilates can be very challenging, even for men! I have been attending Rehabilitation Pilates classes with Kia Sofia. Kia is quirky, funny and relatable and I find myself enjoying her classes very much. Before I know it, the one hour is over and I’ve had a work-out. I find Kia’s voice to be calm, and her exercises to be appropriately challenging. If you aren’t feeling the exercise where you’re meant to, she works out ways to adjust the exercise so that it targets the right muscles. The benefits of Rehabilitation Pilates are that it strengthens the muscles that help support the back. It helps to counteract the amount of sitting that I have to do either at my desk or driving, thus improving my posture. I would highly recommend Kia Sofia’s Rehabilitation Pilates to anyone with back pain related to a disc problem or posture.
