Combining Pilates and Physiotherapy For Better Results and a Healthier You.
Pilates4Physio combines the science and clinical reasoning from physiotherapy practice with the principles of Pilates. Pilates restores muscle balance and correct movement with strength and flexibility. The concept of training correct muscle recruitment, as well as strength, is the key to overcoming many over-use conditions. Even for acute injuries, the Pilates equipment allows gradual pain free movement so that the healing process can take place.

Pilates 4 Physio Keeps You in Balance
See what people are saying about us!
After an ACL reconstruction, I had been to 5 or 6 physiotherapists in the UK, Ireland and Canada. Two years later my leg still wasn't right, I had pain and weakness and my leg felt as though it was rotated inwards about 15 degrees from where it should be. I was very frustrated as I wasn't ready to get back to skiing or martial arts which I had expected to be 12 months earlier.
I found Damian, described my symptoms and he immediately diagnosed that I had done lots of work on strength (squats, lunges etc) but not enough on stabilization. Within a few sessions I had noticed a considerable difference and was heading back to normal extremely quickly. I am now fully recovered thanks to his expertise.
Damian is a fantastic physio who is passionate about his profession, but side from that he is a great guy who is really approachable, kind and understanding.
You couldn't find a better physio. Go to Damian!
I went to see Damian at Pilates4Physio with a severe pain in my lower back and leg. The doctor I had seen as well as a chiro were not able to diagnose the issue. In a short period of time, Damian was able to diagnose the underlying problem and immediately began working with me to strengthen it. I also received an exercise to perform on my own.
I was in debilitating pain for months and because of Damian I am feeling much better and on the road to wellness. Thanks Damian!
Damian's combination of dance background, soft tissue work, and pilates all inform his physiotherapy techniques to great effect. Very grateful to have been referred to this excellent health resource.
