Aquatic Therapy Protocols for the Geriatric Therapist

16 hr. training module packed into 2 days. Includes ~8 hrs in-water training, 2+ hrs land labs, and tons of evidence. Let’s face it. The population is aging so it’s nice to know you’ve got a powerful solution to the weight of the world… water. Attend a class designed to examine the most common disorders seen in geriatric rehab settings – total hip and knee replacements, arthritisosteoporosis, dependence in gait, Parkinson's, CVA, progressive neurological disorders, cardiopulmonary disorders, and more.

This class will focus exclusively on the geriatric population and participants will examine recent research which supports aquatic therapy for this population. Even better? You’ll get in the water for over 8 hours to practice your new protocols and progressions. On Monday morning, be prepared to make a compelling argument for incorporating aquatic therapy across the geriatric spectrum – from injured elderly to the neurologically impaired, non-ambulatory client.
