This Aquatic Rehabilitation for General Populations is designed to give a comprehensive overview of exercises suitable for a general population recovering from injury, replacement surgery, and other debilitating conditions that prevent them from enjoying full mobility with daily living.
The learning objective is to understand anatomy, safe joint range, muscle action and overall fitness levels requirements to be able to design and oversee safe exercise programs that will help each person return, as close as possible to, or improve upon, their previous levels of mobility.
The goal is to provide overall mobility for recovery and function for activities of daily living. Therefore the regions of focus will cover suggested exercises for : the Cervical Thoracic and Lumbar areas of the spine, and the shoulder, hip , knee and ankle joint areas. Other exercises include suggestions for clients requiring CVA or post stroke rehab which can also be used for most movement disorders. These exercises will provide the Instructor with a generic base of safe, adaptable movement that can be combined to create programs suitable to each client’s personal needs. Some people with a chronic condition may never advance beyond a certain stage for recovery however this does not mean they have not improved their quality of life. We train to work on the ability not disability.
