BackHab Course Information

1603 – BackHab I – The Water Way to Mobility and Pain-Free Living

Beginner / 3-hour Workshop

Faculty: Ruth Sova, MS, ATRIC

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Back pain and back problems are our number one non-terminal health problem and affect 4 out of 5 adults in this country. While back problems account for 18 million doctors visits a year, approximately 90% of them can be treated at home. After determining which ones can be treated by a lay instructor, this correspondence course will cover factors that contribute to back pain; the anatomical function, terms and muscles of the low back and a discussion of treatment through aquatic exercise.

NEEDS IDENTIFICATION: With 80% of the population experiencing back pain at some time, offering back classes must have potential. The problem is finding the right instructor who can produce a good program. Your worries are over. BackHab can be used safely by any instructor. The client can even use it alone.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

1)   Define the cause of most back pain.

2)   Select which clients you can safely treat.

3)   Attain materials that will allow you to create their own BackHab program by selecting moves from a “menu”.

4)   Analyze how daily life affects back problems and how to modify work habits without decreasing productivity.

2603 – BackHab II – Progressions for Orthopedic and Chronic Conditions

Intermediate / 3-hour Workshop

Faculty: Ruth Sova, MS, ATRIC

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The BackHab II program focuses on relearning functional movement patterns with carryover to activities of daily living. Progressions are included to further challenge qualities such as balance, coordination, endurance, trunk stability and gait. Alignment with neutral spine is re-evaluated with every change in exercise. Precautions and modifications are included. The program has proven to be ideal for clients with chronic pain, with shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and back disorders, and with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, MS, arthritis, asthma, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure. Older adults and those recovering from strokes will also benefit. BackHab can be used in one-on-one rehab and personal training, in groups, and the client can use it independently for post-rehab conditioning.

NEEDS IDENTIFICATION: We have a lot of techniques that can be used for specific diagnoses but they are geared toward specific outcomes and sometimes narrow in scope. The BackHab II program is an integrated program that will accommodate a variety of diagnoses and offer true functionality for clients.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

1)       Differentiate between progressions for balance, coordination, endurance, muscular strength, etc.

2)       Compare goals for each exercise.

3)       Analyze and practice stride length, width, swing and roll.

4)       Experience continuous, graded resistance.

5)       Evaluate alignment and neutral spine with every transition.

6)       Assess patient/client with exercise-specific considerations.

7)       Expand therapeutic tools to integrate muscular endurance and strength, balance, coordination, trunk stability, and gait training.

8)       Awareness of alignment with varied strides.

9)       Experiment with balance challenges.

10)  Consider the concepts of integration.

11)  Follow logical progressions.

2610 - BackHab Certification

Intermediate / 8-hour Workshop

 

Faculty: Ruth Sova, MS, ATRIC

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The BackHab Certification focuses on vertical exercises for an adult population relearning functional movement patterns after injury or surgery. The exercises have carryover to activities of daily living. Edge-of-pool exercises are moved into ambulation and then progressions are added to further challenge qualities such as balance, coordination, endurance, trunk stability and proprioception. Alignment with neutral spine is re-evaluated with every change in movement pattern. Precautions and modifications are included.

While BackHab was created for back issues, it expanded its application to all orthopedic and chronic conditions when the BackHab Progressions were added. The program has been used successfully with chronic pain (from surgery, injury, fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc), with shoulder, hip, knee, and back disorders, and with chronic conditions such as asthma, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, aging issues, and with neuro issues such as MS and CVA.

The class will discuss specific application of exercises, progressions and focus.

BackHab can be used in one-on-one rehab and personal training, in groups, and the client can use it independently for post-rehab conditioning.

The BackHab Certification will allow practitioners to train and certify colleagues.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

1)  Differentiate between progressions for balance, coordination, endurance, muscular strength.

2)  Compare goals for each exercise.

3)  Analyze and practice stride length, width, swing and roll.

4)  Experience continuous, graded resistance.

5)  Evaluate alignment and neutral spine with every transition.

6)  Assess patient/client with exercise-specific considerations.

7)  Expand therapeutic tools to integrate muscular endurance and strength, balance, coordination, trunk stability, and gait training.

8)  Practice awareness of alignment with varied strides.

9)  Experiment with balance challenges.

10)    Consider the concepts of integration.

11)    Follow logical progressions.
