Pilates with a Physio - Why is it better?

By Holly Brasher

What benefit do I get?
Here at SquareOne, our Philosophy is to not only fix your injury but send you away stronger, fitter and more resilient – in other words, less likely to injure yourself again.

Our Pilates programs help deliver our evidence based exercise programs to those who are in pain, those rehabilitating or those just wanting to move and exercise more.

When taking our clients through their programs we not only have what exercise you are going to do next front in mind we are thinking of a multitude of different things. Our knowledge of anatomy, pain science, biomechanics, load management, pathology and rehabilitation allows us to consider many different facets in developing your program.

How Physio’s can design you a better program

As Physios we use our knowledge of evidence-based exercises based on our assessment findings, the goals we have set together and current rehabilitation guidelines to select the most relevant Pilates exercises for you.

When designing a program our first consideration is what does the evidence suggest regarding the management of this condition - NOT what is the fanciest exercise on Instagram. Only once this direction is established do we then think about the latest and greatest exercises and pieces of equipment (because we also have these) that fit our plan.

Before each session we:
• Review your diagnosis
• Check what progress has been made
• Check where we should be on your long term plan

During each session we ensure that we:
• Are working towards our session goals
• Reflect on your progress as if it is going to plan
• Aim to provide the relevant education to go along with any injury

At the end of each session whilst we are still saying goodbye and wishing you a lovely day, we are already planning your next session.
We’ve recorded what you’ve done well, what main parts need to be addressed and what your plan will be for your next session.

Overall, everything we do, has you in mind. Our individualised programs help you get better results quicker. And we love it! Seemingly our clients do to.

Try for yourself today. To get started, you’ll need to attend a 1 hour assessment with one of our Physios. You can book online or call 9968 3424.

  • Have you heard of the Netball Knee Program?
  •  The Suncorp Super Netball series is heading into finals! Even though my team, the NSW Swifts have missed out this season, this netball fanatic will be glued to the screen watching some amazing athletes work their magic on the court!

  • Lauren is Back in the Practice
  •  Everyone told me that the first six months of my little girls life would go so quickly! Honestly wasn't so sure, I thought that I might get a bit bored while I wasn't working, after all I can't remember the last day I had off to "do nothing".

  • Back pain in pregnancy
  • Pelvic Girdle Pain - What is PGP?


    As many as 50% of women experience PGP during pregnancy. Happily, 90% of women recover from PGP within 12 months of having their baby. However, up to 10% of women can continue to have significant PGP and disability 2 years post-birth.
    PGP refers to pain felt either in the back of the pelvis, on one or both sides and/or pain over the pubic joint. Pain in generally located between the top of the pelvis and the bottom of the buttocks. Pain may be referred into the buttock and/or down the leg, so it’s often confused with sciatica 
    PGP involving the pubic symphysis joint can also refer pain to the groin, inner thigh, lower abdomen and vaginal area. 
    PGP is a condition often misdiagnosed, misunderstood and poorly managed.


    What causes PGP during pregnancy and after having a baby?
    During pregnancy there are many changes that occur to your body that change the way it works. There are obvious changes that include:
    ·      Your tummy growing, which stretches your abdomen and stomach muscles
    ·      The weight of your baby sitting on your pelvic floor muscles throughout the pregnancy, providing a slight stretch to them 
    ·      Your centre of gravity, or balance point, moving forward as your tummy grows, which adds increased load to your back and challenges your balance

    Less obvious are the hormonal changes that occur, right from the first trimester, which changes the ‘stretchiness’ of your ligaments. Relaxin is one of the hormones responsible for this increase in ligament laxity, as it changes the collagen structure of your connective tissue (which makes up ligaments). Connective tissue, including ligaments, helps control your joints and support your pelvic floor muscles.

  • Tiered Pricing Structure
  • Last month we welcomed Sol into the Titled Physio fold after she completed her Masters in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
    SquareOne now have 5 Titled Physios - with only 1500 in Australia we sit well above the average for your average Physio clinic! (FYI -there are only 10 at the Australian Institute of Sport)
    Any wonder SquareOne continues to be the preferred Physio provider for Mosman and surrounds. 
    On 1st July we will move to a tiered pricing structure for our Physiotherapy consults to reflect the extra knowledge, expertise and case management you receive when seeing one of our Titled Physios. 

  • Runners Knee
  • "Running will ruin your knees," a phrase I’m sure we have all heard. Despite what your well-meaning but potentially ill-informed neighbours, co-workers, and relatives may have told you, there's no evidence that regular running damages knees.
