A consultation is important if you have had a recent injury, surgery or pain for a long time. This allows the Physiotherapist to fully understand your physical condition. It is important to assess your physical condition, determine your own specific goals for your Pilates sessions and allow a specialised program to be developed for you.
This consultation also gives you time needed to learn to correctly contract the deep stability muscles targeted in Pilates. This can be challenging for people who have not utilised these muscles.
You will be asked to have a consultation if you have never done Pilates and you are unable to attend the beginner's class.
We strongly suggest you have a thorough assessment particularly if you have had pain or injury.
