Low Back Pain & Pilates: Flexion and Extension Based Programs

Presenter: Karen Clippinger, MSPE

Low back pain is prevalent and the same Pilates exercise can aid or aggravate different clients. The first half of this day will focus on understanding the common low back conditions of lumbosacral strain, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis, as well as why spinal flexion can aid and spinal extensions aggravate them. The second part of the day will focus on understanding the common low back conditions of disc injury, flat back posture, and osteoporosis, as well as why spinal extension can aid and spinal flexion can  aggravate them. Participants will learn novel Pilates-based exercises and modifications for classical Pilates exercises designed to build necessary three-dimensional core strength that emphasize tolerated positions while avoiding positions that tend to aggravate these conditions.

This workshop is approved by the PMA for 6 CECs.
