482This month, studio co-founder Matt McCulloch & orthopedic surgeon and accomplished Ironman athlete Dr. Mark Klion are teaming up to present Ask the Expert: Pilates Rehab for ACL & Meniscus Tears. Delve in to the anatomy, biomechanics and pathophysiology of these injuries and explore their medical and surgical treatment with Mark. Then, learn how to put your newly honed clinical knowledge to use with specific Pilates mat, equipment, and in-home programming with Matt. Check out what participants can expect to learn from this informative workshop (from Matt & Mark’s unique perspectives, of course!)

  • choreography specifically modified to retrain the knee mechanics with the quadriceps group in an eccentric position, emphasizing patella tracking
  • choreography modified to strengthen the kinetic chain in order to prevent re-injury to the ACL/Meniscus post surgery
  • how to prepare the ACL/Meniscus recovery client for the return to cutting and pivoting activities
  • weight bearing choreography and plyometrics that simulate walking, running and jumping that will increase control and proprioception of the lower extremity
