Featuring speakers from Hospital for Special Surgery and more
Join us for this special pre-conference event designed to explore the necessity and importance of “overcoming pain”, as opposed to “managing pain” – a paradigm shift that allows for significantly better movement outcomes for clients and patients.
Conceived and coordinated by the PMA Board of Directors in collaboration with Hospital for Special Surgery faculty and invited guests, this first-ever presentation will empower Pilates teachers and licensed healthcare professionals with a holistic approach to help their clients and patients overcome pain by focusing on the restoration of function and mobility.
