Why Certification is Critical for a Rehab Pilates Instructor

Competent, certified instruction is critical to ensure you get the best, safest, and most effective rehab program. With foundational to advanced education levels, certification for rehab Pilates is a comprehensive and professional qualification program that gives instructors the in-depth knowledge and skills needed to guide rehabilitation care.

Structural Understanding

Pilates for therapeutic rehabilitation is built upon an understanding of the actual anatomy and physiology of the human body.

Rehab Pilates certification requires an anatomy prerequisite that helps instructors understand not only the condition or injury but also the supporting structural system.

Understanding the anatomical systems helps instructors effectively apply the necessary Pilates modalities for maximum benefit.

Whole Body Knowledge

Pilates certification emphasizes a holistic view of both the direct area of injury and all compensating areas of the body. Building upon an understanding of human anatomy, this integrated view aids certified instructors to develop effective rehab programs.

Knowing how the injury or recovering areas may be influencing the body allows certified instructors to develop integrative programs that stabilize and facilitate movement while minimizing discomfort.
