BET: Level 1 Extended
Pilates based mat work: trunk stabilization postural control
Pre-recorded Level 1 theory and practical demonstration of treatment intervention and assessment delivered online. Course registrants benefit from extended time for self-paced online learning preparation; reduced in-person time requirement to 1.5 days
This is probably one of the most practical courses I've taken, where I could use all of the material immediately in my practice! The approach and technique works incredibly well on chronic cases, and helps you get to the root of the patient's problem. It also helped me resolve a few of my own dysfunctional movement patterns.
Level 1a: Introduction to Theoretical and Practical Neuromuscular Re-education Concepts
Level 1b: Basic Neuromuscular Assessment and Treatment for Pilates – based Physiotherapy Interventions
Disrupted muscular control associated with pain, poor posture or altered biomechanics is a component of many chronic or recurring muscular-skeletal clinical conditions seen by physiotherapists.
B.E.T. Pilates is a systematic and progressive therapeutic exercise intervention for rehabilitation developed by Rochenda Howard (Torontonian physiotherapist) and Julia Ellis (professional ballerina and instructor), based on the Pilates Method. (For more information on BET Physio-Pilates: www.betphysiopilates.com)
B.E.T. courses are designed to address imbalances in neuromuscular control inherent in chronic or recurring conditions. The Primary objectives are to learn, as clinicians, how to identify the dysfunctions (1b), and effectively facilitate NMS activity to restore a balanced posture, trunk stability and pain-free movement (1a). These courses are practical in nature. Level 1a provide theoretical concepts and foundation, together with systematic therapeutic exercise content; 1b train clinical assessment skills easily integrated into your current treatment approach to enhance your clinical outcomes. No Pilates Apparatus is utilized in Level 1. Intervention mat exercises are adapted and modified based on classic Pilates Mat work; relevant for foundational physiotherapy clinical applications.
