Event description

Description

This workshop is available for Pilates instructors only.

Workshop Details

One in three women and one in twelve men over the age of 50 are affected by low bone density. With many Pilates clients falling into the 50 years plus age bracket, this is a condition that we need to consider when designing Pilates programmes for this sector.

Low bone mass (osteopenia) is indicated by a Bone Mineral Density with a Standard Deviation of 1-2.5 below the young adult mean (known as the Target 1 group). Osteoporosis is indicated by a Bone Mineral Density with a Standard Deviation of 2.5 or more below the young adult mean (Target 2 group). Severe osteoporosis is indicated by not only a Bone Mineral Density with a Standard Deviation of more than 2.5 below the mean, but also with one or more osteoporosis-related fractures (Target 3 group).

This course (part theory, part practical) will update participants on the latest medical research on the above and will discuss how the latest findings affect the way that we, as Pilates teachers, teach clients from within the Target 1 and 2 groups.

The aims of the course are:

  • To briefly examine osteoporosis and osteopenia; fracture sites, risk factors, BMD testing
  • To consider the effectiveness of exercise
  • To review the main objectives of Pilates training for these conditions
  • To assess the latest US and UK guidelines on contraindicated movements
