    Ebook

    Your clients and athletes demand and deserve customized, adaptable solutions when injury or chronic pain impairs movement and performance. Known for its whole-body approach to fitness, Pilates is the perfect way to help your patients recover, rehabilitate, and reach their goals.

    With Pilates for Rehabilitation, you will learn how to apply proven Pilates methods to address dysfunction and help your patients achieve optimal performance. Renowned instructor and physical therapist Samantha Wood provides detailed descriptions of the most effective exercises for rehabilitating and healing injuries, improving functional strength, promoting efficient movement, and managing pain.

    In addition to step-by-step instructions for Pilates apparatus and mat work, you will learn the indications and contraindications of each exercise and the primary muscles involved so you can determine when the exercise is appropriate for each client. Modifications and progressions allow for adaptation of exercises based on the stage of rehabilitation or the severity of the injury or condition being treated. Suggested exercise protocols, organized by common orthopedic injuries in anatomical regions, offer the flexibility to tailor a program to the specific needs of each client.

    Authoritative yet accessible, Pilates for Rehabilitation paves the road to recovery. Recommended by BASI Pilates and full of the latest research, proven exercises, and expert advice, this is the ultimate rehabilitation guide.

    CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. The Pilates for Rehabilitation Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of the Pilates for Rehabilitation With CE Exam package, which includes both the book and the exam.

    Audience

    Rehabilitation professionals, athletic trainers, physical therapists and physiotherapists, physical therapy assistants, and chiropractors; also a reference for personal trainers and Pilates teachers seeking to incorporate exercises into their clients’ programs to optimize function.
