We are extremely excited to add a new arm to what we offer at Pilates Plus Physio, launching a brand new Pilates service for neurological clients led by Katy Wilson- read on to find out more!
Pilates Plus Physio is a home grown, Edinburgh based company run by a small group of physiotherapists. We offer Physiotherapy, massage and 1:1 Pilates at our clinic on Howe Street, where we specialise in musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and Women’s Health. We also run Pilates, Yoga , Barre and Nordic Walking classes throughout Edinburgh.
We are delighted to add our Pilates 1:1 neuro service, led by Katy Wilson, Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist. Katy currently works with the Edinburgh Community Stoke Service and has previously worked with MS and Parkinsons clients within NHS Lothian and in private practice. She has recently trained as an APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) Pilates instructor and sees that there is enormous scope and opportunity to help those with neurological conditions through Pilates.
Pilates is a popular form of exercise for people with neurological conditions and is advocated as a form of rehabilitation to improve posture, strength, flexibility, balance, and the control of movement. Exercises are designed to develop a strong central base by targeting the core to improve everyday tasks such as reaching and walking, and the neck and shoulder girdle to improve posture and upper limb use.
It is also a great way to return to exercise in a community setting with the guidance of a specially trained neurological physiotherapist to ensure that individual conditions are understood and exercises are tailored to specific needs.
This dedicated 1:1 service will launch on Saturday mornings from Saturday 7th September at our clinic Physio Plus, 12a Howe Street, EH3 6TD. We are based within Albany Dental Care. Appointments are available from 9am-11am.
