PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

12 Easy Steps to a Lifetime of Balance & Bone Health
Falls and fractures are leading causes of hospital admission among the aging population. In 2010 alone, emergency departments treated 2.3 million fall injuries among older adults—662,000 of which resulted in hip fractures and other severe injuries. As a rehab professional, you can protect your patients by teaching them preventive exercises that target bone density, core stability, coordination, and flexibility.

This course teaches you an evidence-based Pilates program that retrains balance and maintains bone density in 12 easy steps—without any specialized equipment. Starting with an in-depth exploration of risk factors, seminar attendees review key components of balance and examine the bone-building matrix that occurs from childhood to adulthood. The practical component then guides you through standing-based exercises that address bone density and strengthen the spine, carefully highlighting movements your older patients should avoid.

Based on up-to-the-minute research on osteoporosis, spinal and pelvic stability, strength conditioning, and pain, this program features traditional Pilates movements that have been redesigned for the rehab professional by the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI).

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Analyze balance, bone development and bone health, the incidence of osteoporosis, and the fracture cascade
  • Evaluate research demonstrating the benefits of exercise for improving balance and maintaining bone density
  • Outline the 12 stages of APPI's Pilates balance-rehabilitating and bone-building program
  • Evaluate and practice exercises that strengthen and protect areas of the body prone to fractures while improving balance
  • Design Pilates classes that effectively integrate the demonstrated exercises

What You Should Bring
• Exercise mat
• Towel
• Water bottle
