COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The clockwork approach is a visualization technique on the large and small clock arrows of a clock, for both anchored moves and stepping skills to achieve better balance during proper alignment. It gives a great variation for muscle and mind connected exercises, helps participants achieve more efficient gait, balance and functioning, and is fun!

·     Ab/adduct

·     Flex/extend

·     Internal/external rotation

·     Circumduction

·     Touches

·     Lunges

 

Progressions:

·     Loaded Movement Training

·     Deeper water

·     With turning and weight shifting

·     Heavy concept

 

Clinical purpose:

·     Balance

·     Coordination

·     Fall prevention

·     Tolerance to complete weight shifts and transfers

·     Trunk glide
