3D Standing Pilates for Osteoporosis
This workshop looks briefly at the concept that osteoporosis is the next epidemic to hit the healthcare industry. It will touch upon the epidemiology, prevalence and incidence of osteoporosis both worldwide and specifically in the UK. Osteoporosis currently causes more days in hospital than some more publicised diseases, such as cancer! With the growing and ageing population it is predicted that the epidemic of osteoporosis will only grow and grow. One of the key components of not only managing osteoporosis but preventing its onset with exercise. Several research studies have proven that the use of Pilates movements is one of the key components to managing this disease. APPI delivers a unique step by step process of creating a program that is based on targeting the common fracture sites that the research into osteoporosis suggests. The workshop will introduce some key weight bearing exercises included in the program that not only will help with bone building, but balance, the prevention of falls and flexibility.
