What is Pilates and why learn the Pilates Method?

A common misconception when my Pilates students begin classes, is that Pilates is thought to be a program to develop strength and fitness like aerobics or circuit classes.  It is true that Pilates develops strength and fitness, however the program is not similar to aerobics or circuit training.

Pilates is: 

Pilates is a form of exercise, developed byJoseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.

Pilates is one of the most popular exercise systems in the country.

Indeed, one of the best things about the Pilates method is that it works so well for a wide range of people. Athletes and dancers love it, as do seniors, women rebounding from pregnancy, and people who at various stages of physical rehabilitation.
The top benefits doing of Pilates exercise that people report are that they ecome stronger, longer, leaner, and more able to do anything with grace and ease.

Core Strength
Core strength is the foundation of Pilates exercise. The core muscles are the deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When the core muscles are strong and doing their job, as they are trained to do in Pilates, they work in tandem with the more superficial muscles of the trunk to support the spine and movement.
As you develop your core strength you develop stability throughout your entire torso. This is one of the ways Pilates helps people overcome back pain. As the trunk is properly stabilized, pressure on the back is relieved and the body is able to move freely and efficiently.

If you are interested in starting a Pilates class drop in and see one of us to have a quick talk about your needs. 

Class timetable:
We run classes in the morning on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at 10.30am 
Our afternoon classes are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at 6pm.

Autumn pains

There's been an influx of cold weather problems here at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy Paincare Pilates as Summer has long gone, and Autumn has set in.  Joints such as the knee, hip, back,  fingers and toes have had to adapt to barometric pressure changes. Nerves are increasingly feeling pain as they adapt from warm conditions to colder conditions.
Our strategy at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy is to help our clients suffering from joint pain syndromes eg knee pain, hip pain, back pain, hand and foot pain and more seriously - arthritis; is to help our clients find pain relief via increasing joint health with various special techniques involving hands on adjustments, some warm and gentle electrotherapy and we also devise a home management plan suited to each client to help minimise the pains from returning as the days become increasingly colder.  

We welcome new customers who require  help with their pain management to book in with one of our physiotherapists by phoning 0434 708 488, or booking online at www.boostphysiotherapy.com.au

Our Preseason Tip for Calf Pain

  • Hi Everyone, 
  • It is definitely season for pre season injuries here at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy.  Today its been calf pain, and more calf pain, and well..lots of people with variations of CALF pain.  So here's a bit of information about preseason leg injuries.  
  •  Muscle cramps are caused by fatigue or muscle tightness, or an imbalance of fluid, salt or potassium from heavy sweating. To prevent muscle cramps, make sure to stretch before and after training.
  • Muscle Strain
    A muscle strain causes tenderness of the muscle and possibly swelling. Muscle strains are caused by sudden contraction of a muscle and poor flexibility. Dancers, runners, jumpers are particularly prone to muscle strains in the lower back.
  • Shin Splints
    Shin splints cause pain on the front portions of the lower legs. Shin splints are caused by jumping on hard surfaces, improper landing, and poor flexibility. Be especially cautious to land properly after attempting a jump to avoid shin splints.
  • Plantar Fasciitis
    This condition causes chronic pain and inflammation to the foot, especially to the heel. Pain may also be felt in the arch. Plantar faciitis is particularly common in ballet dancers who wear pointe shoes.
  • Stress Fracture
    Stress fractures cause pain and swelling, and usually occur in the shins or balls of the feet. They are usually caused by repeated jumping and landing. Female athletes and dancers seem to be at high risk for developing stress fractures in the lower legs and feet.
    For ongoing calf or leg pain, call us for individual advice and treatment.  We are open 6 days a week. Happiness in health!

Preseason Training

After the indulgence over Christmas, New Year, Australia Day, Chinese New Year and lack of training, its been a busy week here at Port Adelaide Physiotherapy Paincare Pilates in terms of calf, quadricep, hamstring and foot pain syndromes.

To get back to sport and reduce your injury recurrence, a simple drill to limber up the body can include fast sprints.

Step 1: Set up two cones (or any two objects eg shoes, bags etc which won't fly with the wind)
Step 2: Sprint between these cones.  Run around them, or stop and start between each.

The Aim:  To get the body loose and agile by varying directions and speed.  This will recondition fitness and agility fast.

If you need any further advice, we are always available on 0434 708 488 or 8447 8408.

Happiness in health!
