With Kath Banks

For a full understanding of the application of the Pilates Method to bone health, National Pilates Training offers you this fascinating workshop about Pilates for Osteoporosis.

With 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over 50 experiencing an osteoporotic fracture, it’s time to increase your knowledge of this disease, as there is a strong chance many of your clients will fall into this population.

This workshop explores the development and diagnosis of osteoporosis, who is at risk and the volume of people affected. Programming strategies will focus on minimising fracture, through the application of indicated and contraindicated Pilates repertoire, with a focus on falls management and an understanding of possible fracture sites. The program will have a heavy matwork focus, so will be relevant to both matwork and studio Pilates instructors.

  • Diagnosis – understanding DXA Scores
  • Bone fracture risk management and falls prevention
