What is Reformer Pilates?

I am often asked to explain the difference between Physiotherapists and Personal Trainers, so I thought I’d try and clarify it here.

Many Physiotherapists take on a presence in fitness training as an extension of their rehabilitation role. They advise clients on exercising with, and for the prevention of, certain types of injuries. They often work in close consultation with medical physicians and surgeons to plan overall healthcare strategies for patients.

Physiotherapists routinely prescribe training programs for clients outside their regular treatments. As a result, there is overlap, so it is understandable that confusion exists. A Physiotherapist is a university trained professional (4 years) that is also part of the Allied Health group. Generally, Physiotherapists are specialists in the area of musculoskeletal disorders; prevention, treatment and management.
