New Challenges for my Patients

Thank you for agreeing to present your aquatics course here in Knoxville April 12-13. It was a great hands on course and you made the discussions and demonstrations interesting and fun to learn. The lessons learned has really improved the way I treat pt’s in the pool by introducing ways that have made it more challenging to my patients, goal oriented, and functional, resulting in providing  “skilled aquatic PT” rather than  just getting in the water and doing the same basic routine with my patients.


Thanks again.

Thank you again for the great course! I knew I had learned a ton, but it was amazing to me how quickly and easily i was able to incorporate the complexities into all treatment not just aquatics. I have most of my patients performing clock exercises with me calling out numbers or colors (using the polyspots) and some form of a 4-wall concept changing directions and activities.  I was able to totally reform one of my kid's aquatic treatment sessions by using the mat (hot dog cart, surfing, and climbing the wall) for UE strengthening, q-ped and sensory stim for dropping into the water (off the hot dog cart). I was getting so bored with his treatment and performing the same three variations of exercises! He's happier and I'm happier. He even asks for the hot dog cart now! and for the snake! 
Thank you again for not only showing me new and improved aquatics but also for changing the way I look at all exercises!
I can't wait to learn more from you in June or another class!
There were a few things I noted to ask you for in this email. 
1. The website or link to where I can get the water streamers (sounded like it could work for a slalom course?)
2. The library language for documentation
3. Article about very young children in the pool (< 1 year olds)
4. The balance Webinar-- I'm not sure if that was the article you sent us
5. The article about kids with tubes in their ears. 
Thank you very much! I really enjoyed the class and hope to take more from you!

Houston, TX Aug 9-10 (Ortho/Neuro)

Think of this as The Appetizer Sampler of Aquatic Therapy seminars. You will be exposed to most of the popular aquatic techniques currently being used in clinics across the globe -- and learn 2 or 3 new ones. Why sit through boring lecture on theory? Instead, get in the water and learn hands-on handling techniques that will leave you with new, concrete skills and the confidence to apply them to your musculoskeletal and neurological patients. And you’ll have a blast doing it.
