Upper Body Rehabilitation in an Aquatic Environment- EDT
Sponsored by HydroWorx
Presented By: Barry Lippman, MS, ATC, CSCS, Associate Athletic Trainer/Rehabilitation Coordinator at Coastal Carolina University
In this webinar, Barry Lippman, Associate Athletic Trainer/Rehabilitation Coordinator at Coastal Carolina University, will provide specific strategies, principles and general treatment design in developing advanced upper body recovery and rehabilitative programs emphasizing the use of water as a medium to implement them. The strategies are developed to safely, efficiently and effectively bridge the challenging gap between rehabilitation and performance.
The use of hydrotherapy exercise can stimulate the body’s response to regeneration and increase speed of recovery from fatigue. Proper aquatic training can also allow an athlete to gain and maintain upper body strength while minimizing residual soreness. This webinar will outline a systematic approach to effective upper body training in an aquatic environment.
- Employ a progression and regression for late term upper body aquatic rehabilitation
- Utilize water as a medium for low impact upper body performance and strength gains
- Apply effective scapular stabilization techniques to prepare athletes for overhead throwing
