About the course D

Level 1a: Introduction to Theoretical and Practical Neuromuscular Re-education Concepts

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 exercise intervention content and theoretical concepts; 1b train clinical assessment skills easily integrated into your current treatment approach to enhance your clinical outcomes. No Pilates Apparatus is utilised in Level 1. Intervention mat exercises are adapted and modified based on classic Pilates Mat work; relevant for foundational physiotherapy clinical applications.

Education

2019

Both Rochenda Howard and Susan Ting offer courses on the B.E.T. physiotherapy rehab system for physiotherapists. The model is a systematic and progressive therapeutic exercise intervention for rehabilitation developed by Rochenda and professional ballet instructor Julia Ellis, based on the Pilates Method.

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 (Level 1b), and effectively facilitate NMS activity to restore a balanced posture, trunk stability and pain-free movement (Level 1a, Levels 2, 3 and 4). These courses combine both theory and practical lab work.  Level 1 is basic mat work. Level 2, 3 and 4 introduces the Pilates apparatus (equipment).

A new development: Susan and Rochenda are in the process of developing higher level courses with only mat work for clinicians who work without the Pilates apparatus.
