5.0 Injuries and Special Populations

Pilates is an extraordinarily powerful and rehabilitative movement method. Many find Pilates because they are referred by a physician or physical therapist to help them continue healing after surgery, injury or pain. When clients come to Pilates they are in a post-rehab state so it is necessary to learn how to modify exercises for them. This course will shed light on many of the injuries and special populations you will encounter in your career. 

Main Features

  • Types of Injuries, disease, conditions and syndromes
  • Pilates exercises and modification

  • Types of pain
  • Healthy movement
  • Class Programming

What is the target audience?

  • Current Students signed-up for a teacher training with California Pilates
  • Pilates Professionals looking to learn about different injuries and special population

The Injuries and Special Populations course is a necessary component to being a Pilates professional.  Learning how to work with the limitations your client possess will help you be an asset.
