Updates to the STOTT PILATES® Rehab Program
Here at MERRITHEW™, we’re always listening to the valuable feedback that our community has to offer. Based on feedback from instructors, clinicians and our valued partners, the first sections of the STOTT PILATES® Rehabilitation Courses will be available in smaller course modules as of January 1, 2015. This redesign is more flexible, better accommodates clinicians running their own practice and allows more time to absorb the materials.
Each module of the Rehabilitation program is specifically designed for licensed health care professionals wishing to integrate modified STOTT PILATES exercises for injury prevention and rehabilitation into their practices. Therapists learn a systematic movement-based approach to neuromuscular re-education and are taught to observe and understand optimal and non-optimal movement strategies, and how these strategies correlate with pain and pathology.
Rehab Matwork & Rehab Reformer Courses
For those clinicians who do not have access to larger equipment, RM1 - Matwork for Spine, Pelvis and Scapula - and RM2 - Matwork for Peripheral Joint Rehabilitation – introduce the biomechanical principles of STOTT PILATES and how they apply to modified Matwork exercises with props.
The Rehabilitation Reformer modules – RR1 and RR2 – demonstrate how modified exercises on the Reformer can be used to treat and prevent common injuries with a focus on core stability and peripheral mobility.
The time frame for each section of the course has also been expanded. Each of the Rehab Mat & Reformer modules is 18 hours in length with physical review, practice teaching and observation requirements bringing each segment to 44 hours in total. The Cadillac, Chair & Barrels (CCB) courses remain the same.
