A leading provider of physiotherapy-led Pilates in Stockport.

Expert physiotherapy treatment frequently incorporates the key principles of Pilates as a means to improving patients’ posture and core stability, which can be effective in resolving and preventing recurrence of neck and back pain.

In association with Élan Physio, our highly specialist Pilates physiotherapist can offer the additional long-term benefits of a private one-to-one physiotherapy-led, or modified Pilates consultation and individualised exercise programme.

Modified Pilates consists of strength, mobility and stabilising exercises, which can be beneficial for those experiencing pain or weakness, or to anyone who wants to start exercising again, but may be concerned about aggravating an existing injury or condition. Modified Pilates can also be beneficial to improving muscle tone, especially in the abdominal region.

Specialist physiotherapy-led Pilates at Marple Physio

Our modified Pilates combines specialist clinical physiotherapy expertise with the core principles of Pilates exercise to equip our clients safely with a range of long lasting benefits – including those with existing conditions or injury.

Benefits range from improved posture, flexibility, strength and co-ordination to relief from lower back and neck pain.

Your consultation

During your consultation, you will be able to discuss any condition, pain or discomfort you are experiencing, and/or any improved sports performance you would like to achieve. Our highly experienced Pilates physiotherapy practitioners will then complete a lifestyle review and ‘head to toe’ biomechanical posture assessment before discussing achievable short and long-term goals with you.

In order to assess which particular exercises will be most beneficial for you, posture observations are made throughout the consultation; this includes sitting, standing, walking and other day to day actions such as squatting and standing on one leg. These also allow baseline measurement of balance, initial core strength or any muscle imbalances that may be present. Our Pilates physiotherapist will then fully explain their findings before devising your modified Pilates home exercise programme, tailored to your individual requirements and taking into account your occupation, sports and hobbies.

Your consultation provides an opportunity to practise exercises under the guidance of our expert modified Pilates physiotherapy practitioner. Further video demonstration of the exercises is included with your programme, ensuring that you are fully confident in completing exercises independently at home.

Your physiotherapy-led Pilates consultation will last 45 minutes and you will be asked to wear comfortable, stretchy clothing such as jogging bottoms or leggings. Modified Pilates exercises are typically practised in barefoot or socks and consist of strength, mobility and stabilising movements. Key elements of your personalised programme may include exercises focusing on neutral lower back posture – working key lower back stability muscles, correct ribcage alignment, shoulder blade stabilisation, neck muscles and/or posture. Exercises included may also be designed to improve your spinal mobility, flexibility and postural awareness.

To offer the most effective physiotherapy treatment, we always work closely with our client’s doctors, as appropriate, and will refer you for further medical consultation, as required. We are also pleased to be able to offer our clients reflexology as an optional complementary therapy and are always happy to discuss any potential benefits of this with you during your treatment.

Fantastic service from day one. Fixed my leg injury. Really pleased with the care given. Thank you.

I have seen a few physios and a chiropractor over the past ten years and Liz is the only person who identified that I had a falling arch and not only recommended the right orthotics with a raise but also suggested some compromises so I could still wear a raise with holiday footwear. She also showed me some exercises specific to my problems (not just some print out of generic back exercises). Through her treatment, the exercises and orthotics I feel I have a long term solution for the first time in 25 years (since an accident) that has actually also fixed knee and foot pain and neck pain and headaches that I never realised were related. I would highly recommend her as someone who genuinely tries to help fix the problem not just temporarily relieve pain.

Couldn’t ask for a better team to help get me back on my feet! Liz is very patient and motivating! The reception team are extremely helpful and go above and beyond to help with any issues you may have. I am so glad I found Marple Physio to help me through a very difficult time in my life. Thank you all!

Top marks for everything. Prior to my knee replacement surgery, Liz has been working hard to get me in the best possible condition. Her expertise and her pleasant manner have made the sessions very rewarding. I would thoroughly recommend this practice in every way.

I was incredibly impressed with my treatment at Marple Physio. They took the time to listen to what the cause of the issue was and then looked at different treatments to resolve the issue. The treatment must have worked as I was able to complete the half marathon that I’d been training for (relatively) pain free, having only been able to run a few kilometres at most prior to my treatment. I have since recommended Marple Physio to a number of people.

In over 65 years I had never visited or needed to visit a Physio. That was until firstly I had a knee problem and the for the first time in my life a back problem. Both down to excessive golf. Well Elizabeth who treated me was wonderful. She identified the problems immediately and with the minimum number of visits cleared my problems. Lovely manner and would not hesitate to recommend.

Big thanks to Marple Physio for sorting out my sciatica. After months of suffering you diagnosed the cause, (tight muscle) and arranged treatment. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you!

Thoroughly satisfied with treatment. My daughter Grace had a sports problem with her foot which was extremely distressing for her. She was unable to get an urgent appointment with the lower limb specialist but was seen by the team at Marple Physio – who were fantastic. Helpful, reassuring and made some great suggestions and gave exercises which have been really beneficial. Her problem has been hard to diagnose but the help and treatment has been great and thank you for strapping Grace’s foot for a big running event. It worked and she was delighted with the strapping. I would highly recommend Marple Physio and the specific tailored treatment offered. Reception staff also very nice.

I don’t usually comment on these things but I thought I had to. The Marple team were simply wonderful. I have had lower back pain for 15 years or so and had given up hope of being pain free. Marple Physio listened very carefully to my problems. I then was put through my paces including working my feet and toes. I felt light after the first session and by week three I was nearly pain free. Magic, simply magic.

I found the service and treatment excellent. I would definitely recommend Marple Physio to others and would use them again should the need ever arise. Many Thanks.

I found my therapist, Jane Turner, really friendly and professional at the same time. I was impressed that she understood about an unusual condition that I have and was extremely happy with the outcome of my treatment. I will certainly return if I need more treatment in the future.

Marple Physio are really excellent. They helped me through a complicated hip injury – adjusting treatments and exercises regularly after listening carefully to my feedback. I’ve just completed the London Marathon and it’s all thanks to Liz and the team. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.

Wonderful to find a physio who spoke to me like a person and not an idiot, clearly explained my injury and went through treatment options along with her recommendations. Would definitely recommend to anyone – especially those who like to try to understand the physiology of their problem.

Fabulous, a true assessment of what I needed and how I could achieve it, with a personally tailored plan that fitted my lifestyle and abilities.

I was referred to you from my specialist at the Alexandra Hospital. I was really pleased with my treatment and the help I was given. I have finally had treatment that works for me. Will definitely come back for help if required. Many thanks.

Unfortunately for me, I have had quite a few back problems over the past few years. Fortunately, Marple Physio is nearby and Liz and the team have done a fabulous job of unpeeling all the layers and getting to the root of the problem each time. Being treated with a combination of manipulation, acupuncture and Pilates exercises means I now have a much stronger core and I know how to keep it that way! A big thank you to you all.

I am very pleased with the fantastic treatment I received from Liz for headaches. She was very professional and friendly and I would happily recommend her to others.

Every time I came for an appointment I went away very satisfied. All the staff are very friendly and professional. I would recommend Marple Physio and they will be my first choice if I need more treatment.

After six weeks of neck and shoulder pain, it was a total relief to receive professional and expert advice with successful treatment over four sessions.

I use Marple Physio for my physio, podiatry and Pilates needs, the service has always been both professional and caring. I am greeted with a friendly welcome and I feel the treatment is continually tailored to my needs.

Elizabeth’s expert diagnosis and treatment which included massage, acupuncture and targeted Pilates exercises resolved a backache and sciatica problem I have had for several years. Many thanks to Liz and the team.
