What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is Pilates that is specifically designed and tailored for your individual needs by a trained physiotherapist. Following a thorough assessment, your physiotherapist is able to prescribe and recommend exercise that are specific for you and your needs based on your injury, injury history and relevant medical history.
What is the difference between Clinical Pilates and normal Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is tailored specifically for you. It takes into account your specific injury and physical needs, medical history and previous injuries. In addition, you’ll commonly utilise additional equipment during Clinical Pilates such as the Trapeze Table, Wunda Chair and Barrel.
How often should you do Clinical Pilates?
Whilst Clinical Pilates should be done at least twice a week, your program will be tailored and individualised based on what you need to address but your program takes into consideration all your physical activities and exercise throughout the week.
Can I claim my Clinical Pilates appointment on Private Health insurance?
Given that our physiotherapists at ME Physio supervise and program your Clinical Pilates program – you are able to claim Clinical Pilates on Private Health Insurance extras.
We are able to claim on-the-spot using HICAPs when you bring your card to your appointment.

Can a physiotherapist refer for scans?
