Refined Back Specific Low Back Pain Workshop The Body Refinery

Pilates And Non-specific low-back pain

When: 6 months online access to lecture material, notes, videos and exercises
Price: $118

Back pain is probably the most common reason people attend Pilates these days. But what is back pain and does the cause affect your programming?

To best understand it, let’s go back and review your anatomy knowledge and look at the body as a movement system. This will remind you why Pilates is so fantastic for back pain and help you ‘sell’ your services to your prospective client.

Susan will take you through each phase of recovery with a framework that will help you to appreciate the pathological factors that underpin your goal-setting, objectives and exercise choices.

In addition to the lectures, slides and assessment material, you’ll be able to download several recorded exercises to best understand how to care for a client who is experiencing NSLBP.
