Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance.
At Summit Physiotherapy, we aim to get you feeling stronger than ever and keep you out of our clinics for as long as possible. This works hand in hand with the 1:1 reformer Pilates Service. Pilates strengthens the core muscles, trains the body to be more efficient and more balanced in movement. By improving flexibility, it can help prevent injury. Athletes with better core strength have shown more dynamic control of their movements and are less likely to be injured.
With a sliding platform, known as a carriage, on which you lie, sit, kneel or stand to perform different exercises. This highly versatile piece of equipment allows for an unlimited range of exercises to be performed, many of which train key muscles you probably never knew existed.
With a career spanning over 20 years in the health and fitness industry, Ruth brings lots of knowledge and experience to the team. She is extremely passionate about what she does and really enjoys working with a wide range of people, from complete beginners to seasoned athletes.

What is Moddern Pilates?
Modern Pilates is a unique, clinical approach based on the original exercises of Joseph Pilates. It was developed by physiotherapists and some of the best Pilates practitioners in the UK, bringing the methods of Joseph Pilates into the 21st Century.
The exercises work on the deep structures of your muscles and through a sequence of movements help to strengthen your body from within to improve your poise, body awareness and muscle tone. The Modern Pilates method of exercise promotes uniform development of all the muscles in the body working on precision and flow.
Modern Pilates is recommended by Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors, and is considered safe for people with back, knee, hip and shoulder problems. Many people use Pilates to assist rehabilitation following an injury or operation.

what to expect...
I'VE SUFFERED VARIOUS RUNNING RELATED INJURIES OVER THE YEARS AND THESE GUYS HAVE NEVER FAILED TO GET ME BACK RUNNING AGAIN. THEY'VE ALWAYS GIVEN GOOD ADVICE TO PREVENT ANY RE-OCCURRENCE OR TO AVOID NEW INJURIES OCCURRING. I'VE BEEN TREATED BY VARIOUS DIFFERENT STAFF MEMBERS AND ALL HAVE BEEN COURTEOUS, ATTENTIVE AND VERY COMPETENT. ANY TIME I HAVE HEARD OF A FRIEND OR COLLEAGUE WHO NEEDED SOME PHYSIO TREATMENT, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN QUICK TO RECOMMEND SUMMIT PHYSIO DUE TO MY POSITIVE EXPERIENCES WITH THEM.
HAVE USED SUMMIT FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS FOR VARIOUS RUNNING AND CYCLING INJURIES. I HAVE SEEN VARIOUS MEMBERS OF STAFF DURING THIS TIME AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. ALL STAFF ARE COURTEOUS, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ABLE TO EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS THE TREATMENT REQUIRED FOR THE INJURIES. AFTER RECEIVING TREATMENT, THEY ALSO EXPLAIN HOW TO AVOID REOCCURRENCE WITH THE HELP OF EXERCISES. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRACTICE TO ANYBODY
I SAW ANDY AFTER A SUCCESSION OF POOR ADVICE AND A SUBSEQUENT DISCECTOMY LEFT ME WALKING LIKE FRANKENSTEIN. HE SUPPORTED ME WITH A PROGRAMME OF REHAB THAT ALLOWED ME TO GAIN MY CONFIDENCE BACK AND ULTIMATELY MY NORMAL LIFE. NOTHING IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE AND HE ALWAYS GOES THE EXTRA MILE. EFFECTIVE REHAB IS AS MUCH ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT AS IT IS THE PHYSICAL AND HIS HUMOUR IS PRICELESS IN THIS AREA. I HAVE SINCE WALKED THE 3 PEAKS AND CAN LIVE RELATIVELY PAIN FREE WHICH I NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE. I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT ANDY AND CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM AND SUMMIT PHYSIO HIGHLY ENOUGH
5 STAR REVIEW FOR THE FRIENDLY GREETING AND EFFICIENT SERVICE FROM LOUISE ON RECEPTION WHO BOOKED OUR APPOINTMENT, THROUGH TO THE PROFESSIONAL PHYSIO ASSESSMENT, SERVICES AND AND AFTERCARE FROM CORRINE. THANK YOU BOTH. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
CORINNE IS AMAZING. VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY. I FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE AND I ALWAYS FEEL BETTER HAVE MY SPORTS MASSAGE. I GET QUITE A FEW NIGGLES FROM BEING A STUDIO FITNESS INSTRUCTOR BUT CORINNE ALWAYS SORTS THEM OUT. I WOULDN'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE.
