This course manual is designed to improve a movement professional’s understanding of the structures of the spine. It can be read on its own as an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the spine and torso, but is foremost designed to complement the Body Organics Education’s Anatomy Dimensions – Spine & Torso online course. It is part of our Foundational courses.
The manual and online course are designed to give the participants the capacity to critically analyse specific pathologies of the spine and torso and to develop strategies for exercises and movement that will help facilitate recovery and to minimise the risk of injuries.
After reading the manual you will gain an understanding of:
// the bony landmarks of the spine and their functional roles
// the intervertebral discs and the nerves of the spine
// the role of growth plates and associated disorders of the spine
// alternative ways to cue and establish movement in the Pilates repertoire
// specific pathologies (disc bulge, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, Scheuermann’s disease) of the spine and appropriate modifications to incorporate into a movement and Pilates class
A digital copy of this manual is included in our online Anatomy Dimensions Spine and Torso course.
