Carlton Football Club

In 2009/10 I had the pleasure of working with Carlton Football Club (AFL) in Melbourne.  During these two years our  physiotherapy  team developed a pilates rehabilitation program to prevent common football injuries such as groin, knee and shoulder injuries, just to name a few. 

Individual sessions aimed at increasing awareness, relaxing overactive dominant muscle groups and activating core stability muscles.

After individual sessions we ran reformer group classes for maximum of 6 footballers.  Over the two years these activity specific exercises were found to enhance core stability muscles and body awareness, leading to a prevention of injury.

The Carlton Football Club now designates two pilates sessions a week for players at an A grade level.
