37. Pilates for Spondylolisthesis, with Raphael Bender and Cloe Bunter
Play • 1 hr 14 min

In this show, we look at Pilates for spondylolisthesis and the related condition spondylolysis, explore how the conditions present, the differences between them, and how we, as Pilates instructors can help people who have them. The Pilates ‘elephant in the room’ in this discussion is the myth that spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis always correlate directly with pain. Pilates teachers are often anxious that there are specific exercises that they should or shouldn’t be recommending to clients with these conditions so in this episode we dive into why it’s so vital to rely on evidence and to ensure you are up to date with best practice so that you aren’t engendering fear in clients unnecessarily.
