2603 – BackHab Basics

Intermediate / 2.0 credit hours
(Classroom Viewing Time: 1 hour / Pool Viewing Time: 1 hour)

Faculty: Ruth Sova, MS, ATRIC

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The BackHab 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. 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.

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) Assess patient/client with exercise-specific considerations.
6) Expand therapeutic tools to integrate muscular endurance and strength, balance, coordination, trunk stability, and gait training.
7) Evaluate balance challenges.

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.
