Advanced / Half-Day Workshop
Sanibel, FL / Thursday, June 3, 2021 – 1:00-3:45 pm – 2.5 credit hours
(Classroom: 1:00-2:15 pm / Pool: 2:30-3:45 pm)
Faculty: Beth Scalone, PT, DPT, OCS, ATRIC
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Functional and sports performance optimization requires a balance of mobility and stability throughout the body. Physiological recovery from an intense workout, rehabilitation session or competition is vital for progression of a program to meet desired outcomes. This course will present current research justifying the use of the aquatic environment for training and recovery. The pool lab will present integrative exercises to develop postural stability throughout the kinetic chain without compromising mobility and include recovery activities to help clients heal from injury or surgery, minimize soreness, and function at the highest level possible.
1) Clinically justify the use of the aquatic environment for recovery activities post-intense exercise session or competition.
2) Apply, progress and cue aquatic integrative whole body exercise for kinetic chain stability throughout the range of motion.
3) Recommend at least three aquatic recovery techniques to promote blood flow, reduce metabolic waste and reduce delayed onset muscle soreness.
