Clinical Pilates for Physiotherapists – WOMEN’S HEALTH

Docent : Ana Rita Cruz & Elisa Petiz (Portugal)

Inhoud : 

Women face a range of complex health issues over and above injury, trauma or illness and the stage of life challenges associated with middle or old age. Menstruation, menopause and pregnancy and its related conditions can also significantly affect the body. There are some  strategies and exercises that will improve these changings, and Clinical Pilates is one example of a clinically relevant approach, which leads to significant benefits.

The course runs over 2 days. This course will focus the specificities of the physiological changes throughout the life of women, and a huge variety of Clinical Pilates exercises will be taught. All exercises were modified and simplified to be suitable for each phase of women’s health… for each trimester of pregnancy, on the post-natal care and also in the elderly, associating the menopause period and the hormonal deficit.

This course is not meant to be a Women’s Health Physiotherapy course, but a Clinical Pilates Course in Women’s Health. It will keep the same line of clinical reasoning as in the Matwork Level 1 Course. It is designed to teach physiotherapists with previous knowledge in Clinical Pilates, the indications and contra-indications in prescribing exercise in these different phases  of women’s health and related issue
