The clinic can be found within the heart of Springfield, conveniently located near Springfield CentralSpringfield LakesBrookwaterAugustine HeightsCamiraBellbird-Park, Spring Mountain, Goodna, Redbank Plains, Greenbank, and Forest Lakes.

With an emphasis on core conditioning, breathing, and body awareness, our Core, Strength & Mobility classes provide a safe and highly effective way to stretch, strengthen, and streamline your body without building bulk or putting stress on your joints.

These classes incorporate various exercises that focus on balance, power, strength, and stability. They can be conducted using Pilates equipment (such as the reformer, trapeze table, exercise ball, etc.) in a CSM Studio class or in the form of a Mat Class using bodyweight and minimal equipment. We progressively build and advance your program based on your individual needs, providing ongoing advice and education throughout so you leave feeling like an improved version of yourself.

Our Core, Strength & Mobility classes are designed as a lifelong fitness regime, whether performed on a mat or with specialized equipment. They are the perfect complement to cardiovascular exercise, sports, rehabilitation, and everyday life. By participating in these classes, you can expect to achieve a toned appearance, feel revitalized, and move with greater ease.

Our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists lead the classes with expertise in Clinical Pilates. Clinical Pilates refers to one-on-one Pilates sessions often used for injury rehabilitation in conjunction with physiotherapy. At Sports & Spinal, we offer both options and can cater to your specific needs.

Before attending any of our classes, all patients are required to undergo an initial assessment with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist. This assessment familiarizes patients with the equipment, positions, and exercises used in the classes and helps identify any injuries or restrictions that need to be taken into consideration for a safe and tailored experience.

Springfield Sports & Spinal is NDIS registered and accepts Medicare rebates and HICAPS health fund claims. EFTPOS and credit card facilities are also available for payment. 

Core, Strength & Mobility classes are perfect for toning and reshaping the body. It works on creating long, lean muscles, toning all of those hard to target areas such as the abdominals, inner thighs, buttocks, back of thighs, sides and backs of the arms. For toning, these classes are best performed 3 to 5 times a week through a combination of studio sessions, mat classes and home exercises.

Pilates exercises are performed through a wide range of movements and work on lengthening the muscles at the same time as strengthening them. To increase flexibility, stretching exercises need to be performed daily.

The Clinical Pilates exercises used in our Core, Strength & Mobility classes focus on strengthening the weakened postural muscles and stretching the tight muscles that pull the body into these poor postures. Studio sessions are the best way to improve posture as our physiotherapists can develop a program to target your specific postural problems. Pilates can also be used for back pain as it relaxes and strengthens the muscles, easing the discomfort.

Our Core, Strength & Mobility classes use Clinical Pilates techniques which are fantastic for injury rehabilitation and prevention as it works on core stability, posture, flexibility, and correcting muscle imbalances and weaknesses via specific strengthening. It can be used for arthritis, neck pain, back pain and various injuries.

Pilates is the secret tool that many high level and recreational athletes use to enhance their performance, decrease the risk of injuries and provide much-needed cross-training. Each sport has specific strength and flexibility requirements. When you book in for an assessment, your physiotherapist will look at the things you need to work on to improve your performance and then proceed to design a Pilates program for you.
