EARLY BIRD PROMOTION:
Pilates has been touted as the go-to exercise for any form of rehabilitation. What is it about this modality that makes it ideal to get people moving again in a pain-free manner? While Joseph Pilates’ original 34 exercises are fantastic for developing the mind-body connection that is the basic tenet of Contrology, how exactly would you go about applying these exercises to those with lower back pain, stroke, or a total knee replacement?
This course is designed to help you decide how to apply Pilates exercises to rehabilitate those with medical conditions. You will learn
- Basics of Pilates as applied to rehabilitation
- Perform a rudimentary dynamic assessment for your client or patient
- Analyse Pilates exercises from the perspective of the principles of Pilates for Rehab
- Identify step-up and step-down exercises which will help the student to design a progressive management programme for their client
This is a 16-hr course that has been designed for allied health professionals, and Pilates instructors interested in rehabilitation. The course will have a theory component as well as a significant movement component. So please do come prepared to experience the exercises that you will be prescribing your clients.
