North American Seminars, Inc. Releases the 2012 Dates for the Physical Therapy Continuing Education Course, Utilizing Pilates Principles to Enhance Rehabilitation Outcomes

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) November 30, 2011

Joseph Pilates coined the term Contrology to indicate the control of the muscles with an individual’s mind. Pilates principles can have a significant impact on a patients rehab outcomes.

How can a therapist utilize Pilates principles in their practice to achieve better patient outcomes?

This two-day physical therapy continuing education course is designed to help medical professionals gain basic knowledge of Pilates theory and principles and be able to integrate it into their rehabilitation programs. The core stabilizing muscles will be reviewed, as well as how core stabilization is important to functional activities and activities of daily living. The lab portion will be devoted to learning, properly executing, and cueing Pilates mat exercises. Small apparatus, including foam rolls, Swiss balls, and rings, will be used during lab exercises for modifications and advancements. Application of the Pilates principles and exercises will be discussed for orthopedic, neurologic, and geriatric patient populations. Further discussion of case studies and current research will demonstrate how a Pilates-based treatment program can help improve core stabilization, balance, coordination, postural awareness, strength, flexibility, and mobility. Upon completion of this course, the clinician will be able to immediately integrate their knowledge in the clinical setting to provide a Pilates-based treatment program to the orthopedic, neurologic, and/or geriatric patient for improved functional outcomes.

This course is directed at the physical therapist, occupational therapist, physical therapy assistants and athletic trainers. This continuing education seminar is pre-approved for continuing education credit in the States listed below.
