Knee Replacements (TKA) & Pilates: Taking Your Client from Pre-rehabilitation to Post-rehabilitation to Fitness
October 27 @ 10:45 am - 12:45 pm UTC+0
@ the 17th Annual Meeting of the Pilates Method Alliance
Come and learn how and why Pilates is the best form of low impact movement that will restore range of motion and complete function for the client with a knee replacement. As a practitioner of Pilates you may have two or three clients in your weekly schedule with a lower extremity joint replacement. Pre-Pilates and Pilates movements on the mat and equipment are ideal for post-rehabilitation to fitness, and offer progressions and modifications for successfully advancing a client through each stage of pre and post recovery. We will review the anatomy of a knee replacement compared to normal knee anatomy. Learn to apply best practices in utilizing the Pilates environment to work with the pre and post-operative knee replacement client while keeping within the scope of your practice of the Pilates teacher.
