Many sports involve rotation and repetitive movements that can result in overuse injuries. A few examples include golf, tennis, and hockey. Athletes of these sports commonly develop imbalances and injuries – the effects can range from impaired performance to a sidelined athlete.
This 8-hour workshop teaches Pilates practitioners to incorporate Pilates exercises into the training/rehabilitation sessions of these athletes to develop greater stability, core control, and range of motion while decreasing fatigue, injuries, and biomechanical issues.
Walk away with the ability to identify the key factors that influence successful application of rotational sports: mobility, stability, alignment and coordination.
You will be able to:
— apply basic assessment skills pertaining to rotational sports for clients.
— demonstrate the ability to design a Pilates program unique to rotational sports
— identify potential limitation in the rotational athlete that may lead to injury or pathology
