Physical therapists and rehab professionals know that giving the very best care to patients means lifelong study—constantly searching for and acquiring the knowledge, skillsets and tools that expand treatment options and increase the bottom line of a private practice. Many PTs, especially those working in sports physical therapy, are aware of Pilates and the benefits it has for athletes and non-athletes alike. Building on the foundation of alignment and mindful movement of STOTT PILATES® is STOTT PILATES Rehab Education. From a full rehabilitation program to workshops and trainings, an education in STOTT PILATES Rehab gives therapy professionals an opportunity to expand their practices and work with clients through the post-rehab phase. Which training path will work best for you? We break it down below.
