“We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.”
-George Bernard Shaw
At Chevron Island Physio we are committed to helping people maintain active, healthy and independent lifestyles.We have many programs suited to elderly clients including:
Our reformer Pilates is perfect for older adults as it low impact and easy on the joints.
With its focus on controlled breathing and quality of movement-not quantity of repetitions- Pilates is one of the best ways for older adults to stay healthy while reducing risk of injury.
Pilates helps with a variety of age-related ailments including arthritis, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, back pain and may even contribute to delayed onset of mental health issues such as Alzheimers. Pilates is also a great tool for rehab from surgical procedures like hip replacement or knee surgery.
Other benefits include improving strength, flexibility, balance, energy and quality of life with a focus on maintaining independence.
Our classes are run by Physiotherapists who will tailor an individualised program based on your specific needs, injuries and goals. You will be monitored closely throughout the class to reduce risk of injury and maximise benefits. Our classes are perfect for any age or fitness level. Even if you have never exercised a day in your life you will benefit from Pilates!
We hope to see you in a class soon.
