In the Pilates studio, we encounter many clients with hip pain and/or a diagnosis of a particular hip pathology. While it is not our job as Pilates teachers to treat a client’s hip 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:
- Hip dysplasia
- Femeroacetabular impingement (FAI)
- Osteoarthritis of the hip
- Gluteal tendinopathy and trochanteric bursitis
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 hip pain.
