Fourteen Hour Live Training Course

Earn 14 PMA and 14 BOC continuing education credits

This workshop will discuss several types of back pain and help to categorize them.  We will discuss red flags of when to refer that client on or when to avoid certain activities.  Then we will apply Pilates mat and reformer movements for a fitness evaluation and post rehabilitation plan.  Leave with a new confidence for when your client says:  “I hurt my back” or “Can you teach me a Pilates program that won't hurt my back?”.  At the completion of the course the participants will be required to pass a written exam.

Course Objectives:

Participants will label back pain into 5 general exercise categories.

Participants will identify red flags and know when to refer a client on or discontinue/modify an exercise.

Participants will list permitted movement for each of the 5 categories and demonstrate 5 exercises for each of the 5 categories on the mat and reformer.

Participants will demonstrate the ability to administer a back pain questionnaire and movement screen to qualify a client to a particular category of back pain
