Clinical pilates in practice

From this autumn we'll be introducing a brand new series of courses to our CPD programme, specifically targeted at practitioners who are intrested in introducing Clinical Pilates to their practice.

The series starts with a two-day Foundation Course on 28-29 October, and is followed by a one day Small Group Fundamentals course on 17 March. Delegates booking both courses together receive a 10% discount on total course fees.

We speak to course leader Sandie Ennis to find out more about the course...

"If you are interested in expanding your scope of practice with evidence-based movement therapy or exercise rehabilitation, our Clinical Pilates foundation course is a great place to start. Many physical therapists now incorporate Pilates into their provision of care as it is a recognised effective form of movement rehabilitation when used in conjunction with hands-on treatment.

So, why is clinical pilates different? Clinical Pilates uses current concepts in pain management, movement dysfunction and musculoskeletal sciences which can help speed your patients through their recovery process or assist them to manage long-term conditions.  Clinical Pilates training will give you the knowledge and skills to adjust, modify and individually choose Pilates exercises that meet your patient's specific needs.

Our Clinical Pilates foundation course will explore Pilates exercises and modifications from original the Pilates and contemporary repertoires. Participants will learn useful, effective and safe ways to work with patients who experience joint and movement dysfunctions, using current concepts in pain management and musculoskeletal sciences which can help your patients manage short or long-term injuries or conditions. Being able to move with more ease will help people perform activities to maintain or improve their overall health and well-being.

Clinical Pilates utilises specific exercises to assist in optimal function while minimising the likelihood of injury aggravation. One-to-one or small specialised group classes are the most beneficial and safest option for people managing injuries or looking for rehabilitation support. Patients have reported improvement in flexibility, strength, and endurance, with many others reporting better pain control, reduced stress and better sleep. The literature demonstrates evidence to support the use of therapeutic exercise such as clinical Pilates in the management of many injuries, particularly low back pain, but it can do much more. Why not enhance the scope of your practice or clinic with practical CPD?"
