Clinical Pilates is a new and innovative treatment, whereby Pilates exercises are tailored made to the individual, ideal for rehabilitation, preventing further injury and for general health and well-being.
Having had the opportunity to train in New Zealand in a variety of Pilates methods, Sarah Griffin (Our Pilates Instructor and Chartered Physiotherapist) has found that the DMA Approach Clinical Pilates is the gold standard in Physiotherapy Led Pilates, ensuring every aspect of the clients needs are met.
Clinical Pilates will consist of a series of mat based exercises in various different body positions which have been adapted by physiotherapists to make them more suitable for patients with back and neck pain, and those recovering from injury.
To date, DMA Physiotherapy Led Pilates has the most evidence behind it, ensuring each client will receive a specifically tailored exercise program. Before attending Sarah’s class each client will be invited to attend a free Pilates Assessment where they can discuss any previous injuries and set personal goals. Here, Sarah will ensure that any deficits in motor control and strength are targeted both in the class in and their individually tailored Pilates Program.
Clinical Pilates is a relaxing and gentle form of exercise. Here at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic we run small classes to enable the patient and physiotherapist to work together to ensure that the exercises are being completed correctly and so that if required the exercises can be adapted on a one to one basis.
Why is DMA Clinical Pilates superior to other traditional methods of Pilates?
- Reduce pain and safely manage your injury.
- Correct poor mechanics that underlie injuries.
- Greater resistance to injury.
- Training your muscle groups to help your body to work safely and more efficiently.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
