What to Expect in a Cancer Rehabilitation Pilates Class

Before joining this class you will need to book an initial Pilates assessment with one of our physiotherapists, in order for them to assess your individual situation. This initial assessment is paid by the individual, with the consecutive 6 pilates classes being free.

Common Conditions:

  • Fatigue, decreased endurance
  • Limited flexibility
  • Low range of movement
  • Muscle tightness
  • Poor stability muscles (like the core abdominals) which have been affected by bed rest and inactivity
  • Low energy levels

A careful planning process with the client to develop a small class clinical pilates program, with great and careful supervision from Brie. Good equipment and plenty of room in the studio in Deakin

Jean was amazing! Friendly, evidence-based and positive. First went to see her when I was in huge pain and facing surgery. She took the time to work out how to reduce my pain and started me on a program to treat my injury. Several months later - no pain, no weakness and no need for surgery. Highly recommended!

First time goer and not the last! Hamish spent time hearing about my injury and a doable plan was made for me. The app they use lets me remember what exercises I have to do and the ability to touch base during visits using the app keeps myself and Hamish on the same page. Strongly recommend Back In Strength.

I have found Back in Strength to be very professional. After looking in other places, my neurosurgeon recommended Back in Strength to me after spinal fusion surgery. The treatment was tailored to my personal needs and explanations were made clear. It was a one-to-one experience which was followed up with home exercise., which could be digitally monitored.

I have been attending Back in Strength for 5 years. I started Clinical Pilates, for a back condition, with Anne, then Jo and now Maeve, all who provide a professional approach to rehab. Working with me, they have developed and supervised an exercise program designed for my condition, with regular reviews and updating. Their knowledge and holistic approach has enabled me to improve strength, endurance, standing and sitting tolerances. I continue to attend weekly and cannot imagine otherwise. Highly recommend.

The Back-in-Strength Physios are amazing, I have been going to them for four years after some major injuries and extensive back surgery. They helped with my rehab and now I choose to continue with weekly clinical Pilates classes and live a pain free life. I have had classes with many of the physios and would recommend them all - currently with the awesome Maeve.
