Male on Reformer-cropAt Advantage Healthcare and Physiotherapy, all our Pilates Instructors are University qualified therapists. When you are ready to begin exercising after surgery, Pilates is the best way to start.

  • Whether you have had abdominal surgery, caesarean surgery, orthopaedic surgery or neurosurgery, the expertise of a Physio who is trained in Pilates is essential for the safety of your body.
  • No other exercise professionals understand what your body is going through.
  • No other exercise professional understands what your body needs, to recover quickly and effectively.
  • No other health professionals know how to develop a safe, effective and fun exercise program.

At Advantage Healthcare and Physiotherapy, our highly trained, experienced Pilates Instructors will tailor an exercise program for your body that protects your surgery and strengthens all other areas of your body. Once your body has healed following surgery, we will carefully and skillfully assist you in regaining your body's strength, flexibility and full function.

You will be thoroughly assessed to determine where your body is weak and needs protecting, as well as where you are strong enough to tolerate exercise. Every session of Pilates you do in our studio is individually planned and progressed so you are getting the maximum benefit out of your exercise.

We will assist and support you through your rehabilitation to achieve your health goals. It doesn't matter if your goals are to play with your kids, or to do an Ironman triathlon. We will help you every step of the way.
Our team of Physiotherapists has over 100 years of combined experience: you could not be in safer hands.

They are a part of a team of Allied Health professionals whose sole focus is to improve and maintain your health.
