In this three day update course, GYROTONIC® teachers learn the definition, incidence and physiology of bone loss and how to help clients prevent osteoporosis fractures and falls using the Gyrotonic method. Trainers will learn how to understand a bone density scan, how to recognize a client who may be at risk of developing osteoporosis and some basic information about nutrition and medications. The course will also cover modifications of Gyrotonic Level I exercises for clients with Osteoporosis as well as new exercises specifically for bone reformation and prevention of osteoporotic fractures.
On the last day of the course you will experience 3 classes of the material covered: one for a client with severe osteoporosis, one for a client with osteoporosis and one for a client with osteopenia. The material is excellent for any therapeutic population including someone with neurologic condition, poor balance, poor posture or difficulty walking.
