Muscle weakness combined with neuromuscular disconnect can make everyday activities painful and increasingly difficult. Learn how to use water to identify and target muscular weakness and imbalance. Combine therapeutic exercises with brain boosting techniques and specified work intensity to re-establish neural connections and build strength for independence. The concepts learned in this course can be applied to widespread diagnoses including: upper and lower extremity ortho, balance, and neuro challenges such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease.
1) Explore simple ways to identify muscular weakness and imbalance.
2) Learn how to use the water to address muscle weakness and imbalance.
3) Integrate BioExercise™ techniques to help re-establish physical and neural connections.
4) Develop an exercise plan that extends independence.
