CAN I STILL PLAY TENNIS WITH SHOULDER PAIN?
WILL IT HURT?
Some treatment can be uncomfortable but at no stage should you be unable to tolerate the level of discomfort. Your physiotherapist will give you clear guidelines on what to expect during and after treatment and what is a normal reaction. If you have any concerns then you should speak to your physiotherapist immediately.
DO I NEED TO SEE MY DOCTOR FIRST?
f you are self-referring and paying for your own treatment then you do not need to see your GP first.
If you use private medical insurance you may require a GP’s referral, depending on your insurer’s requirement. You should always check with your insurance company before attending your first session.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM DOING PILATES?
You can expect an increase in all of these areas: strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, and body awareness, as well as a decrease in back pain or other general pains.
I HAVE A BAD BACK. WILL I BE ABLE TO DO PILATES?
Although you should always consult your physician before starting any fitness routine, a Pilates workout is gentle and controlled with no sudden jarring actions. It is therefore more important that you work with a qualified instructor to ensure that you are doing the movements correctly. Any of our experienced instructors at Pilates Bodies will be able to modify the exercises to accommodate your limitations, continually challenge you within your range and monitor your improvements. If you commit yourself to a consistent workout schedule you will certainly feel results.

Yes. Acupuncture needles are very much finer than the needles used for injections and blood tests and can be inserted very lightly. We use guide tubes so that they are tapped quickly through the skin and you may not even feel them penetrate the skin. Once in place they are hardly noticeable. If you have concerns please make your therapist aware of this before the first session
