Pilates for Injuries and Pathologies

€910Purchase required to enroll
PILATES FOR INJURIES & PATHOLOGIES
Taught by Sam Wood, this three-day certificate course presents a Physical Therapy approach to working with clients who have injuries, physical limitations, or movement dysfunctions.
Focusing primarily on the cervical and lumbar spine, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and foot, the course covers functional anatomy, biomechanics and a review of current literature. Specific injuries and pathologies, such as disc disease, post-surgical conditions, rotator cuff syndrome, tendinopathies and osteoarthritis, are examined. Students learn about precautions and/or contraindications for these conditions, as well as exercise options and modifications to the original BASI Pilates repertoire. Course participants learn safe ways to work with clients who suffer from some of the most commonly encountered pathologies and injuries, via lectures, discussions, demonstrations and practice.

Sam is a licensed physical therapist, an MBA from USC, a Yoga Alliance-certified instructor and a BASI Associate Faculty member (whew!) Co-owner of The Cypress Center in Pacific Palisades, CA, where Pilates is integrated with physical therapy for people of all ages and abilities, she is the creator and presenter of BASI's highly successful Pilates for Injures and Pathologies course.
