Injuries to the lower back are a concern for a large number of adults and a challenge for exercise professionals. In this lecture/demo-style workshop, developed by the programming team at Merrithew™, learn how specially-designed Pilates equipment can be ideal for working with clients in a post-rehabilitative environment. First, review the normal functioning of the lumbo-pelvic region relating to the lumbar spine, pelvis and hip, and discuss common abnormal or dysfunctional patterns resulting from injury or disease. Then observe how the Reformer, Stability Chair™ and Cadillac can be used to strengthen involved musculature from the deepest layers to the more superficial muscles. Learn specific exercises to create strength and stability that will allow daily functionality and improved performance overall.
