Chronic or persistent pain is a very real and debilitating condition. The goal of this workshop is to provide Pilates practitioners with a better understanding of pain, the development of chronic pain, and how this affects a person physically, socially and psychologically. A bio-psycho-social approach is essential in the treatment and management of chronic pain, so this workshop explores how this can be integrated within the Pilates method.
With an increased understanding of pain, we can then explore the utilization of the Pilates repertoire in the management and treatment of chronic pain. This information can then be passed onto clients, enabling them to have a better understanding of their own condition, which is vital for self-management.
Assessment will include a short practical assessment and pop quiz. You will need to be a fully qualified Pilates practitioner as this workshop will be at a continuing education level.
