We are excited to offer you a new post-injury rehabilitation solution through a new program of Clinical Pilates offered by one of our physiotherapists, Stephanie McCann!

If you have worked with Stephanie before you are aware of her deep commitment to her work, and also of her ability to help clients work through their recovery from injuries. Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, if you are looking for a program to help you through post-injury rehabilitation, Stephanie’s Clinical Pilates classes will offer a thorough assessment of your condition, and a customized program to guide you through a smooth recovery.

What is Clinical Pilates, you may ask? Stephanie answers: Clinical Pilates was designed to be used in a rehabilitation environment to help individuals recover from injuries. Traditional Pilates exercises have been modified to break functional movements down into smaller components or ranges to improve motor recruitment, general strength, and motor control with the support of props such as springs and pulleys.’

If you are attending yoga classes, Clinical Pilates can complement that. ‘Personally, I have found my Pilates practice has improved and deepened my yoga practice. Pilates complements an individual’s yoga practice as it also emphasizes breathing which guides one’s movements, helps one understand their own alignment/anatomy and improve both mobility, flexibility, and stability along with general core strength,’ says Stephanie.

If your level of fitness has decreased due to your injury which caused a lower level of activity or none, fear not. Stephanie’s goal with Clinical Pilates is to assess your current strength, mobility, and stability and develop an appropriate program that will meet your rehabilitation needs.

Since a lot of fitness classes and the instructions can now be found online, it is reasonable to wonder about Clinical Pilates. ‘It is recommended that you learn the basic principles with the support of a therapist if you currently have any injuries,’ advises Stephanie, ‘to ensure appropriate muscle activation and alignment, preventing unnecessary compensation. The goal you’ll be moving toward will be to build a home exercise plan or integrate the individual into a group-based class taught by a Pilates instructor.’

  • Stephanie is a STOTT Pilates certified instructor, as well as an experienced physiotherapist and former Olympic athlete.
  • Your first assessment session will be 60 minutes long, and so is each appointment after that.

What our clients are saying
  • "‘I've been a patient of Dr. Kelsick for the past 10 years, and Dr. Rite for the past 4, and the two are truly amazing at what they do! Although their titles are Chiropractors, they both have such a wide base of knowledge and understanding of the body, that I often feel as if our sessions are a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and occasionally even nutrition. As such, when I see them, I know I am being taken care off. As an athlete, and simply an injury prone individual, they have both truly made a difference in how my body functions. I definitely recommend =).’ "
    Sabrina Nettey
  • "‘Dr. Kelsick and his team are truly amazing. They’ve been putting me back together and keeping me moving for more than 15 years and now take care of my whole extended family, from my 86-year-old mom to my teenage daughters. Dr. Kelsick goes the extra mile to understand exactly what is going on with your body in order to provide the very best solutions. No problem is too complex or challenging. Think Dr. House with a far better bedside manner!’ "
    Peggi Peacock
  • "‘As an athlete my goal is to have a fit and healthy body, and Maxfit Movement Institute helps me maintain this goal. The team of Doctors are truly gifted, and their positive outlook on life is amazing. Thank you for making a difference in my life.’"
    L Murphy
  • "‘The difference with the staff at MaxFit, especially Randy and Wilbour: they take the time to assess and determine the source of your aches or pains. Not only do they treat whatever it is, they explain how to avoid it happening again. I have tried many physio-therapists but none of them come close to MaxFit. Highly recommended. ‘"
