Pilates for Osteoporosis Course in Eugene, Oregon
Dec 5-6, 2008 
Pilates for Osteoporosis
 with Sherri Betz, PT
Here's a shocking statistic. Worldwide, 1 out of every 2 women, and 1 out of every 4 men over age 50 has low bone density! It is essential to meet the needs of this growing population by choosing appropriate exercises, modifying standard Pilates exercise repertoire, and eliminating contra-indicated movements
When a person with low bone density breaks a bone, they don't feel it, and we don't hear it. How can we prevent inadvertent injury to our clients? And as we know, spinal flexion exercises are contra-indicated for those with osteoporosis. So, if you can't flex the spine, how do you strengthen the abdominals and keep the spine healthy?
In this workshop you will learn modifications of Pilates mat and apparatus exercises for creating the perfect treatment or exercise program for the client with osteoporosis or osteopenia.
