Rehabilitation for Osteoporosis

Fit and Frail with a Pilates Emphasis



Course Description

Rehabilitation for Osteoporosis: Fit and Frail with a Pilates Emphasis will teach how to implement concise and useful strategies for any setting from acute care to outpatient that will result in immediate functional changes. Learn how to integrate alignment, breathing and core control using Pilates-based principles followed by appropriate selection and sequencing of exercises for success with extremity strengthening, core control, postural correction, treatment of hyperkyphosis, and balance. This course places a strong emphasis on postural awareness, neuromuscular re-education for trunk control, spinal extension, lower extremity strength, and balance as applied to falls and fracture prevention and functional activities. The purpose of this course is to teach innovative and creative Pilates-based models for working with the fit or frail patient prone to osteoporosis in community-based exercise programs and in acute care or home health settings. Learn to triage patients into a fit or frail category with a simple screening process. We will also cover a myriad of topics from assessment tools to current evidence based treatment of frail to fit older persons. Precautions and contraindications for osteoporosis will be clearly explained with supporting evidence. Exercise classes will be presented in an experiential format that are appropriate for the fit or frail osteoporotic patient as well as case studies utilizing Pilates and other treatment techniques so the attendee will leave with a rich repertoire of treatments that can be used immediately in any setting.
