Deep Water Aquatic Therapy Course
with Alison Bonnyman
Friday, October 18
Why Deep Water?
Deep water (or suspended work in shoulder-deep water) can allow therapists to effectively address orthopaedic restrictions, neurological postural challenges, and athletic training during rehabilitation. This 4-hour course will explore the advantages of aquatic therapy and exercise in deep water / suspension, based on optimal use of hydrodynamic principles and current evidence.
Flotation options will be discussed.
This is a 4-hour course. We will start with the theory and explore some research. Course content will address which clients would benefit from working in suspension / deep water. Pool work will apply and practice techniques and protocols in the deep water. Case studies will provide guided practice to apply and progress deep water techniques.
