Learn the differences between functional versus structural scoliosis, and their varying causes. Train your eye to the individual differences each client uniquely owns, their “scolio-cues” for correctives. Learn functional assessment techniques that help to direct intervention for the biomechanical implications of curvature not only at the separate spinal curves but throughout the whole body. Create a profile to help you and your client better understand their present postures and strategies.
As a Pilates Method Movement Educator, you can and should be part of the modern multidisciplinary care team. Learn new exercises, modalities and a NEW APPROACH to helping your clients with scoliosis and spinal asymmetry!
