ABOUT THIS 2 DAY TRAINING

*This class is required for students pursuing ATU Credentialing in all tracks.

Get ready to get stuffed, saturated and wrinkled! This “how-to” seminar will put your body in the pool for 2 unbelievably extensive days of skill acquisition (16 hours of class; over 10 hours of pool lab).

Think of this as the Appetizer Sampler of Aquatic Therapy seminars. You will be exposed to most of the popular aquatic techniques currently being used in clinics across the globe - and learn 2 or 3 new ones.

Why sit through boring lecture on theory? Instead, get in the water and learn hands-on handling techniques that will leave you with new, concrete skills and the confidence to apply them to your musculoskeletal and neurological patients. And you’ll have a blast doing it.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Verbalize the difference between functional improvement and patient satisfaction. Locate literature which supports the need to address patient satisfaction in order to improve outcomes.

2. Understand how to justify the choice of treating the ortho/neuro client in the water.

3. Demonstrate an understanding of the indications, precautions, benefits and applications of the most common aquatic techniques including:

Manual therapy, trunk stabilization, functional skills training, Salzman's Blanket Drills, Aquatic Adaptations of the Berg, Yoga, Pilates, and exercises/flows loosely based on Watsu, Halliwick, Ai Chi and Bad Ragaz (as commonly integrated into the clinical setting).

2. Demonstrate an understanding of the hydrodynamic and thermal principles behind each aquatic technique in order to: Increase ROM, improve strength, decrease hypertonicity, decrease pain, improve trunk stability, improve balance and proprioception, and improve functional skills.

4. Design progressions of aquatic treatment programs incorporating and blending a variety of aquatic therapy techniques and utilizing each technique at the appropriate stage in rehabilitation.

 5. Examine and modify a sample protocol by seamlessly integrating appropriate aquatic techniques into the land-based protocol.
