We are very fortunate to have Madrid-based Juan Nieto provide TWENTY video modules about Chronic Low Back Pain, which you can access for up to 12 months once you’ve signed up, in your own time and place.
Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) is a multi-dimensional problem, and under this premise we will approach it from different perspectives to design optimal rehab & training programs for people suffering CLBP.
This course presents the most up-to-date and evidence-based reasoning and intervention tools: movement, motor learning, biomechanics, neuroscience, cognitive sciences, communication and of course Pilates will be our allies to achieve the best results for clients with CLBP.
Learn more about how to give a better treatment plan and recovery to clients who suffer from chronic pain.
The 20 video modules provide you the evidence-based framework to help you find your own effective movement interventions to improve workload capacity, facilitate pain modulation, and increase variability. They each vary from 20 to 60 minutes in length, depending on the topic.
