Pilates for Chronic Low Back Pain

Polestar Pilates for Chronic Lower Back Pain Course

CLBP - Chronic low back pain

We are very fortunate to have Madrid-based Juan Nieto provide TWENTY video modules about Chronic Low Back Pain, which you can access for 6 months once you’ve signed up, in your own time and place.


Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) is a multi-dimensional problem, and under this premise we will approach it from different perspectives to design optimal rehab & training programs for people suffering CLBP.

This course presents the most up-to-date and evidence-based reasoning and intervention tools: movement, motor learning, biomechanics, neuroscience, cognitive sciences, communication and of course Pilates will be our allies to achieve the best results for clients with CLBP.

Learn more about how to give a better treatment plan and recovery to clients who suffer from chronic pain.
The 20 video modules provide you the evidence-based framework to help you find your own effective movement interventions to improve workload capacity, facilitate pain modulation, and increase variability. They each vary from 20 to 60 minutes in length, depending on the topic.


  • 1 Year access to the 20 video modules
  • Additional video material
  • Quizzes after every video unit
  • Private discussion forum for students (from all over the world!)
  • Commentary of scientific papers about pain and movement latest research
