Biomechanical and Physiological Alterations in the Aquatic Environment- EDT
Join Nick Held and Erin Bussin for a webinar on Biomechanical and Physiological Alterations in the Aquatic Environment. This webinar is going to review current research on the effects of aquatic treadmill running on biomechanics as well as identify gaps in current research. Nick and Erin will discuss the key elements of water immersion and how a clinician can combine these with the effects on physiology and biomechanics to create an effective training program with aquatic therapy.
- Remember the key characteristics of water immersion that act on the human body during exercise.
- Identify and compare various expected and/or unexpected alterations in the physiology and biomechanics of aquatic treadmill running.
- Evaluate the inconsistencies in the current literature as well as gaps in the literature and clinical practice.
- Apply concepts to implement an effective training and rehabilitation program using aquatic therapy.
Continuing Education: This course is intended for athletic trainers. 2 CEUs are available through the BOC for athletic trainers who watch the live webinar in its entirety.
