Kate is a Paediatric nurse and educator, and a busy mum of 2 crazy kids. Our feature Client Story has been coming to Physio and Fitness Clinic for our Clinical Pilates and Clinical Strengthening sessions for two years. She suffers from a chronic illness – Psoriatic Arthritis, which affects her joints and can cause ongoing inflammation within her body.
Our feature Client Story Kate came to us with an initial goal of delaying her total knee replacements. We successfully achieved this with Myotherapy and Pilates, and in 2023 we have been able to progress her to our clinical strengthening program. She is now lifting weights heavier than ever before!
The thing that makes us super proud of this Client Story, is that Kate has been able to gain trust in her body again! She is currently completing once a week Clinical Strength, once a week Pilates and Myotherapy when she requires it. We aren’t pretending that she doesn’t get pain, or that we have “cured” her arthritis – this was never going to happen. But with a great attitude (Kate has this in spades) and consistency, a great balance can be obtained.
