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.

‘I like the format, being able to absorb the information better. Juan is very clear in his delivery and with a great background science support and experience. It makes me rethink heaps my way of teaching, somehow unstructured it, a little bit scary, but happy to be in this journey.’

‘Juan’s Chronic Low Back Pain course is amazing; he examines all the aspects that may be affecting chronic low back pain from the latest research, with comprehensive examples. The virtual presentation works well: videos that you work through by yourself. I thoroughly recommend it to any Pilates instructor or movement teacher.’


  • 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
