This 1 online day course will guide you through the development of a reasoned Pilates program for anyone pre or post spinal surgery.
The course will begin by reviewing the 3 most prominent surgeries of laminectomy, discectomy and fusion. A review of why one type of surgery would be chosen over another and the implications each surgery type has to the rehabilitation options preferred.
The practical component will take you through the relevant exercises from day 1 through to 6 weeks post surgery where most restrictions are removed. We will then review the most relevant objectives of the rehabilitation program and the exercise used to achieve these.
This truly is a step by step guide to using Pilates pre and post spinal surgery.
Course includes downloadable manual. Approx 6-8 hours to complete.
