Clinical Pilates 1:1

Clinical Pilates is a highly individualised form of traditional Pilates practiced by physiotherapists. Physio 4 Life only performs this style of pilates with 1:1 supervision from our trained and qualified physiotherapists.

Some of the benefits of clinical pilates are listed below:

  • Improve core stability
  • Improve balance
  • Improve sport performance
  • Lessen back pain and enhance a stronger, more flexible spine
  • Increase overall tone, endurance and fitness
  • Assist with relaxation and breathing efficiency
  • Improve concentration, coordination and posture
  • Provide rehabilitation and prevention from injury
  • Aid in the recovery of muscles following pregnancy
  • Assist in developing flatter and firmer abdominal muscles

A program will be specifically developed to target your individual needs during the initial assessment. Our therapists will then progress the program as your skill and strength improves.

Acupuncture / Dry Needling

We offer both traditional Acupuncture and Dry needling as part of our treatment regime.

Danny, Adrian, Quoc, Reg and James have all completed courses run by highly acclaimed dry needling expert Jorgen Forsberg. This form of treatment can be beneficial in the treatment of joint pain, muscle stiffness and headaches.

Danny Gilbert has also completed a traditional Acupuncture certificate with the Australian Acupuncture Association. This form of treatment can be beneficial in the treatment of migraines, general well being and fibromyalgia/chronic pain.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (either by heat or suction) in order to draw and hold skin and superficial muscles inside the cup.

Physio 4 life therapists will use cupping as an adjunct to treatment. Common conditions treated are thoracic tension and hamstring tightness.


Gym and Rehabilitation

We offer both traditional Acupuncture and Dry needling as part of our treatment regime.

Physio 4 Life has exclusive access to a purpose built rehabilitation gymnasium at the Unihealth Playford location. Our physiotherapists can individually design and supervise a physical rehabilitation program using a combination of free weights, pin-loaded and ball stability exercises. This allows us to assist and manage our clients' injuries/conditions and assist their return to their chosen activities of daily living, sport or work environment.

You will be guided through the program so you will reach the highest level of physical function that you desire and give you advice to maintain your desired level of function.
