What is Pilates?
Physiotherapists combine their in-depth understanding of anatomy and physiology with the Pilates exercise system resulting in Clinical Pilates. This can be applied to rehabilitation purposes and as an exercise-based physiotherapy treatment technique. It is the natural progression from treatment towards self-management.
At EBR Physio we personalise your exercise program taking into consideration any previous injuries or conditions. Clinical Pilates is suitable for people of all age groups and fitness levels, as it is a low-impact form of exercise varying in difficulty and intensity, and is closely supervised and instructed by your physiotherapist. Each Clinical Pilates session is tailored to your individual body, goals and needs.What are the Benefits?

Hydrotherapy also known as Aquatic Physiotherapy is exercises performed in a warm pool. We use the pool of the Bentleigh Bayside Community Health Centre in Gardeners Road in East Bentleigh. This is a purpose built hydro pool maintained at a comfortable 33 to 34.5° C. We are able to help many conditions in hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is especially beneficial for arthritis, back pain, post surgical or injury rehabilitation, because of the reduced impact on your body due to the waters buoyancy. We conduct hydrotherapy classes within a group setting to minimise costs, we personalise and make the exercises as interesting and rewarding as possible. Often you will be able to continue your exercises independently once a regime has been established. Please note these classes are suitable even for non-swimmers.
