Post Aquatic Rehab training will teach the Instructor/Therapist 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.

The Training Objectives of this program is to help bring clients back to full functional well-being.

1 . Provide a general low impact mobility program for people with general orthopedic problems.
2. Regional focus will cover suggested exercises for : the Cervical Thoracic and Lumbar areas of the spine, and the shoulder, hip , knee and ankle joint areas
3.  We will review the difference between spinal extension and spinal flexion “relief positions”
4.  Review how to utilize water equipment for assistance (modification)  or resistance (progression)
5.  How to utilize breathing techniques for relaxation and meditation purposes
6. Learn how to modify range of motion and flexibility exercises for all joint actions

This shallow and/or deep water instructor training program is for anyone interested in facilitating  a post rehabilitate approach to fitness. Water exercise is an excellent modality for protecting our joints and healing our bodies. Explore ways to  modify and progress all the components of fitness to help people with some sort of orthopedic, cardio-pulmonary or neuromuscular conditions.  This educational and training includes practical and theoretical information to maintain function in the water for movement and independence on land.

The goal of the program is to  help both swimmers and non swimmers move pain free and develop skills in the water to help their mobility, strength and posture on land.
