Course Outline

 

Pilates for High Performance Athletes in an online and on-demand course that explores the use of Pilates to address the later stage rehabilitation goals of sports injuries and progression towards athletic development. This short course will guide you through the clinical reasoning, design and implementation of a comprehensive, later stage Pilates based rehabilitation program for a range of common sports injury presentations.

During the online short course, you will explore the role of Pilates in athletic development and how Sports Physiotherapy can best utilise the benefits of Pilates. Online theory and practical modules will examine the current evidence base and consensus statements for sports injury management and prevention, motor learning and coaching across a range of age groups and sporting populations. Pilates for High Performance Athletes will have you ‘Monday ready’ to start coaching your patients with a novel approach to Pilates.

With an emphasis on the later stages of Pilates rehabilitation, this short course will discuss using Pilates for strength and power training, neuromuscular and agility training. In addition, common lower and upper limb sporting injury presentations, relevant rehabilitation and return to sport requirements are examined within the context of Pilates management. This workshop includes modifications to common Pilates exercises as well as the novel use of Pilates equipment.

This course is suitable for clinicians currently teaching Pilates to an athletic population or those aiming to expand their athletic Pilates repertoire. All health professionals, students and new graduates with some prior Pilates experience are welcome. Those with no prior Pilates experience may attend, however be aware the practical content assumes attendees have some Pilates knowledge.
