Clinical Exercise Classes

At Port Melbourne Physiotherapy and Pilates we offer individual and small group
Clinical Exercise Classes run by our trained physiotherapists

Clinical Exercise Classes focus on strengthening the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine to improve overall core stability and posture. This enables more balanced, controlled and comfortable whole body movement. Clinical Exercise Classes utilise equipment including reformers, fit balls, balance equipment, the trapeze table and stretching/mobility equipment such as the barrel and foam rollers. This allows a whole body workout to be achieved.

Our team of experienced physiotherapists can individually tailor a program to your specific needs. Whether its rehabilitation or purely a core strengthening program, we aim to assist you in achieving your goals.

  • Improved Postural Awareness
  • Deep Abdominal and Pelvic Floor Control
  • Co-ordination and Balance
  • Whole body strength and toning

Getting Started 

Before attending classes you will first need to book an Initial Assessment. Your physio will undertake a detailed history and assessment, and then teach you the correct way to activate your core muscles using the Real Time Ultrasound. You will then commence your Clinical Exercise program in the exercise studio. Depending on your experience level, injury or condition you may need to attend several one-on-one sessions before booking into classes.

While Clinical Exercise Classes are usually a safe form of exercise during pregnancy, you should always consult your GP or obstetrician before commencing exercise during pregnancy or to discuss your individual condition.


Clinical Exercise

We offer individual Dynamic Core Stability sessions as well as small classes (up to 4 people per class).

Sessions are individualized and class sizes are restricted, to enable a safe exercise environment and to allow your physiotherapist to modify exercises as appropriate to you.
