Working with Common Shoulder Pathologies

a webinar series in three 90-minute sessions

In the Pilates studio, we encounter many clients with shoulder pain and/or a diagnosis of a particular shoulder pathology. While it is not our job as Pilates teachers to treat a client’s shoulder diagnosis, it is helpful to be familiar with some of the conditions we commonly encounter. This understanding allows us to better communicate with our clients and other practitioners, and gives us the confidence to move forward with a client in pain.

In this 4.5 hour webinar, we will discuss:

  • Rotator cuff tears and impingement syndrome
  • Biceps tendinitis
  • Osteoarthritis of the shoulder
  • Frozen shoulder

We will learn strategies for making choices within the Pilates environment that honor contraindications and precautions. And we’ll include a discussion of recent findings in pain science as they relate to shoulder pain.
