STOTT PILATES® Introduces Rehabilitation Training

by Shirley Archer, JD, MA on May 24, 2011

Mind-Body-Spirit News

STOTT PILATES is rolling out a rehabilitation certification program to bridge the gap between rehab and fitness. The program is designed for physical and occupational therapists, chiropractors and sports medicine doctors who are looking to integrate Pilates into therapeutic conditioning. Four courses teach professionals how to integrate mat work and equipment-based Pilates exercises into therapeutic conditioning. “The basic principles of STOTT PILATES are consistent with the basic principles of rehabilitation. We work with the premise that Pilates and rehabilitation need to address the body as a whole, not just a collection of individual parts,” said Melanie Byford-Young, rehab master instructor trainer for the STOTT PILATES rehabilitation program.
