Complete body Movement

Rehab Program

Complete Body Movement are proud to annouce for the first time that we are running two specialised modules as part of the Rehab program - RM1 and RM2. See below for details on each course. 

Overall Information on Rehab Program 

The Rehabilitation program is specifically 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.  *Neuromotor training principles guide the therapeutic exercise selection and progressions. **Participants also learn how to facilitate the patient’s cognitive involvement in rehabilitation through cueing techniques and tactile facilitation. 

Rehab Program choices (Under CBM):

  • Spinal, Pelvis & Scapular Stabilization: Matwork - RM1
  • Peripheral Joint Stabilization: Matwork - RM2

Course Description 

The foundational theories that guide the STOTT PILATES® curriculum relate to the understanding of dynamic stability and neuromotor control. Delays in motor control and imbalance between the deep local and the superficial global muscles have been implicated in pain and dysfunction. (1) Specific stabilization training has been demonstrated to reduce pain, disability and recurrence rates for numerous musculoskeletal conditions.(2)  The STOTT PILATES approach to rehabilitation is based on reestablishing dynamic control of the local and global muscular systems (3) and restoring dynamic balance of stability and mobility.(4)

The integrated Model of Function (5) is used as a foundation for the clinical reasoning throughout STOTT PILATES. Local and global muscle facilitation is achieved through the use of specific STOTT PILATES exercises and equipment. Skilled motor training principles guide patient education, verbal cueing, imagery and palpation.

General Course Objectives:

  • Examine the Therapeutic Foundations of STOTT PILATES and how they integrate with current rehabilitation practices
  • Learn how to teach and apply the STOTT PILATES Five Basic Principles
  • Explore the choreography, modifications, indications and contraindications for STOTT PILATES rehabilitation exercises for Matwork and Reformer
  • Develop the ability to assess proper form for each exercise and how to correct improper execution
  • Outline and practice manual and verbal cueing for each exercise
  • Consider the integration of STOTT PILATES into clinical scenarios

 

Module 1: Spinal, Pelvis & Scapular Stabilization: Matwork - RM1

This module introduces you to the biomechanical principles of STOTT PILATES and how they apply to modified Matwork exercises. Light equipment including balls, bands and rollers are used to emphasize lumbo-pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization and the role they play in rehabilitation and injury prevention. Typically, courses are conducted over 3 days.

What you will learn:

  • Review of STOTT PILATES basic principles
  • Identification of proper execution and movement patterns
  • Effective verbal cueing and imagery
  • Clinical problem solving using the STOTT PILATES method
  • A focus on spinal, pelvic and scapular conditions.
  • Over 35 exercises plus multiple modifications

Prerequisites:

Applications are accepted from the following licensed or certified professionals only:

  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physiotherapists/Physical Therapists
  • Final year health professional student
  • Chiropractors
  • Osteopaths
  • Medical or Sports Medicine Doctors
  • PTA & OTA Assistants
  • Professionals with minimum of 2 years of full time study from a certifying/licensing/degree granting institution in anatomy, physiology, injury prevention, exercise prescription with clinical experience, who have been granted the right to assess, diagnose, treat, and prescribe exercise for the rehabilitation and/or prevention of injuries

Requirements of Certification

  • 18 hours of instruction and supervised teaching
  • minimum 6 hours observation
  • minimum 10 hours physical review
  • minimum 10 hours practice teaching
  • Total: 44 hours

Continuing Education Credits

Course Cost: 
 
€750.00 Excluding Exam Fee* 

Module 2: Peripheral Joint Stabilization: Matwork - RM2

Building on the biomechanical and stabilization principles learned in RM1, this module will teach you exercises that are designed to prevent and rehabilitate common injuries by balancing and strengthening muscles around the joints in order to restore and maintain healthy movement patterns. Emphasis on core stability while mobilizing the peripheral joints. Typically courses are conducted over 3 days.

What you will learn:

  • Review of STOTT PILATES basic principles
  • Identifying proper execution and movement patterns
  • Effective verbal cueing and imagery
  • Clinical problem solving using the STOTT PILATES method
  • Application to injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle
  • Over 25 exercises plus multiple modifications

Prerequisite:

  • RM1

Requirements of Certification

  • 18 hours of instruction and supervised teaching
  • minimum 6 hours observation
  • minimum 10 hours physical review
  • minimum 10 hours practice teaching
  • Total: 44 hours
