This one day New Jersey Approved PT Continuing Education Course blends home study training from a professionally filmed and mastered DVD with online access with face to face interactive instruction and hands on lab sessions. The course has been carefully designed to maximize the learning experience by combining the self-paced online/DVD home study materials with a focused hands-on training session in the classroom.
Pilates is an effective treatment tool when properly integrated into a rehabilitation program. The proper integration of Pilates principles for orthopedic, neurologic, and geriatric populations will be presented during the online educational course and reinforced with a one day hands-on training session supported with lecture. Case study presentations with discussion of the supporting theories of Pilates exercises are integrated into the live and online materials. Expert HD video demonstrates, with narration, over 80 Pilates techniques and exercises and is delivered online and with a DVD. The live session reinforces these concepts and techniques and provides comprehensive lab sessions devoted to learning, properly executing, and cueing Pilates mat exercises. Small apparatus, including foam rolls, Swiss balls, and rings, will be used during lab exercises for modifications and advancements.
Supporting written material is provided for the online as well as live training sessions, and a DVD is provided for self-paced offline learning and reference. Specifically, participants will receive a comprehensive manual containing information on the evidence-based practice of Pilates in rehabilitation (including references to current research articles, types of exercises, effectiveness of Pilates, comparison of Pilates with other forms of exercises, and the use of Pilates in various patient populations) and a professionally filmed and mastered interactive DVD with online access.
This PT Continuing Education Course Online will provide a deeper understanding of how to properly perform and instruct patients on Pilates techniques.
