Introduction

The Pilates Method is one of the fastest growing exercise regimes in the world.

It is a body conditioning and postural alignment exercise program that tones and strengthens the abdominals and core muscles surrounding the spine. It also relaxes tense neck and shoulder muscles, increases flexibility and improves everyday posture.

The Pilates Method systematically addresses the entire body, initially focusing on strengthening the body's core muscles, creating a firm central support from which fluent and controlled movement of the limbs can occur.

The Pilates Method blends floor work with specialist equipment training, developing and exercising all muscles. This results in benefits including increased levels of fitness, strength, flexibility, balance and co-ordination.

The golf swing is a dynamic and athletic motion requiring excellent hand eye co-ordination, strength, flexibility and core control. All these major components are addressed at various levels by the Pilates Method.

Pilates works to find a person's most efficient comfortable movement patterns and then develop, stabilize, stretch and strengthen each of these.

At the Melbourne Golf Injury Clinic we tailor individual programs based on the musculo-skeletal screening process, and in consultation with your golf coach and the Clinic's team of physiotherapists, myotherapists and massage therapists. Our primary objective is to improve your fitness for golf and ultimately your golf.
