Subjected to forces from both the upper body, and lower body, the sacrum and lumbar spine are critical structures for maintaining healthy biomechanics of the entire body.  This course first reviews the anatomy of the lumbo-pelvic region in terms of local stabilizers, global stabilizers and global mobilizers.  Then, common injuries to the area along with suggested protocol for teaching are discussed.  Finally, exercises specific to post-rehabilitating the lumbo-pelvic region are reviewed or taught on all equipment.

Prerequisite: APM, Foundations of Post-Rehabilitative Pilates
