REHABILITATION SERIES DESCRIPTION

PR - Polestar Approach to Pilates Rehabilitation Principles

This introductory, non-apparatus course applies current research in movement science, biomechanics, kinesiology, and motor learning to instructional practice through six basic movement principles. Students will explore human movement through the mind-body communication relationship within the Pilates environment. Lectures and practical sessions accompany each principle. These six basic principles will be utilized throughout the rehabilitation series.

This course will also integrate clinical reasoning techniques based on the IFC (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health developed by the World Health Organization) to facilitate decision-making within the Pilates rehabilitation environment. Pilates mat instruction will be introduced.

Two and 1/2 days (20 hours)
Friday afternoon, Sat/Sun 8 hours
Maximum 14 participants
CPTA Approved for 1.6 CEU's
American Council on Exercise CECs: 1.6
Meets the PMA: Pilates Method Alliance Standard


R1 through R6 - Polestar Pilates Rehabilitation (six courses)

Polestar Pilates Rehabilitation courses teach the practical skills needed to become proficient with the assessment techniques, movement sequences and selection, and principles of movement learned in PR. Mini-lectures will address stabilization, mobilization and trunk control for extremity efficiency.

The movement selections focus on early intervention and initiation of exercises on all Pilates equipment, including Trapeze Table, Reformer, Combo Chair, Ladder Barrel, mat and small props.

Practical sessions address adjustment of equipment for patient safety and instructor efficiency, reinforcing the natural progression of movement following an injury to the spine and/or extremities. Case studies will be reviewed and the participant will design a treatment plan based on the information in the cases. Cueing and movement facilitation will also be emphasized. Lectures will address indications and contraindications for exercise selection.

The repertoire includes advanced skills with movement sequences to treat specific pathologies, including neural tension of the spine and extremities. This integration of manual mobilization skills and Pilates-evolved movement is unique to Polestar. Participants will learn manual intervention techniques appropriate for their scope of practice. 2.5 Days (20 hours) per course. Maximum 14 participants.

Each course is:

Two and 1/2 days (20 hours)
Friday afternoon, Sat/Sun 8 hours
Maximum 14 participants
CPTA CECs: 1.6
Meets the PMA: Pilates Method Alliance Standard
