Here is the essential information for designing, implementing, and managing an aquatic therapy program. This complete guide to the aquatic treatment of orthopedic injuries addresses topics ranging from program format to risk management and pool design. The book also presents 28 plans of care for the treatment of injuries to the lower extremities, upper extremities, and spine. First, Aquatic Therapy Programminggives you the tools you'll need to develop a plan of care for aquatic therapy. You'll learn the basic properties and principles of movement in water and how to apply them to aquatic therapy, how to use water depth during the different stages of treatment, and how to use equipment to facilitate exercise. Author Joanne Koury then describes her unique six-phase approach to designing aquatic treatment plans. The steps include -assessment and early treatment; -strengthening and local muscular endurance; -balance, coordination, and cardiovascular conditioning; -task-related and sport-simulated skills development; -transitional aquatic therapy; and -maintenance and fitness. Next, the book explains how to implement the six-phase plan of care in the treatment of selected orthopedic injuries. You'll find 28 specific plans of care for acute injuries to the -pelvis, hip, and thigh; -knee; -lower leg, ankle, and foot; -shoulder region; -elbow, wrist, and hand; -lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine; and -trunk and neck. Descriptions of exercises used within the treatment plans are enhanced by photographs. You can use these plans of care as a starting point for treatment in the pool, modifying them to meet the needs of individual clients. Finally, Aquatic Therapy Programmingdiscusses the administrative concerns of aquatic therapy facility managers. The book addresses many aspects of risk management and safety planning, including legal responsibility, safety and rescue equipment, pool maintenance, client screening, and staff hiring and training. It also describes how to design a safe and functional aquatic-therapy facility, offering suggestions for new pool design, adapting an existing pool for therapeutic use, and using small swim tanks.
This book includes procedures for assessing clients, techniques, and clinical applications for treating clients using aquatic therapy.

The use of water for various treatments (hydrotherapy) is probably as old as mankind. Hydrotherapy is one of the basic methods of treatment widely used in the system of natural medicine, which is also called as water therapy, aquatic therapy, pool therapy, and balneotherapy. Use of water in various forms and in various temperatures can produce different effects on different system of the body. Many studies/reviews reported the effects of hydrotherapy only on very few systems and there is lack of studies/reviews in reporting the evidence-based effects of hydrotherapy on various systems. "effects of hydrotherapy/balneotherapy" on various systems of the body. Hydrotherapy is the external or internal use of water in any of its forms (water, ice, steam) for health promotion or treatment of various diseases with various temperatures, pressure, duration, and siteWater therapies - commonly referred to as hydrotherapy, are a range of therapeutic body treatments that involve water. Some therapies involve moving and exercising in the water, and when you visit a spa, you might find that there are hydrotherapy pools and baths which have powerful water jets designed to massage your whole body for relaxation and therapeutic effects.Historically, hydrotherapy has been popular in Europe and Asia, where some form or another of water therapy has been prescribed as part of a treatment programme-Some of the basic techniques for pool therapyExercises-Combined Water Therapy for Back Exercise with Land-based MethodsYou can do more than just swim in a poolDuring the late 1700s, cold water was used for the treatment and comfort of smallpoxAs years and centuries have gone by, using water for therapy spread throughout the world.

This is an important treatment modality and it has not been studied solely in patients with a complete spinal cord injury.
Author: David G. Bailey
Although aquatic therapy has been proven to be effective in the treatment of incomplete spinal cord injuries, it is consistently underutilized in the spinal cord injury patient population. Approximately 56% (n=57) of the complete spinal cord injury patients included in this study received aquatic therapy and 44% did not (n=45). This study compared the additional rehabilitation benefit for patients who received aquatic-based therapy in addition to traditional land-based therapy to those who did not. This is an important treatment modality and it has not been studied solely in patients with a complete spinal cord injury. This retrospective study did not demonstrate significantly better outcomes for the group receiving aquatic therapy, but there were significant demographic differences between groups. The results highlight the need for larger and more time intensive studies on aquatic therapy for the complete spinal cord injury population.

Now in its third edition, this trusted clinical guide enables both the busy practitioner and student to review or to learn about a range of pathologies, conditions, examinations, diagnostic procedures, and interventions that can be effectively used in the physical rehabilitation of older people. It presents a broad overview of age-related physiological changes as well as specific professional discipline perspectives. Organized into eleven distinct and interrelated units, the first unit begins with key anatomical and physiological considerations seen with aging which have significant impact on the older person. The second and third units go on to review important aging-related conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular/neurological systems respectively. Neoplasms commonly encountered in older people are the focus of the fourth unit; while aging-related conditions of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, integumentary and sensory systems are presented in units five through seven. Unit eight highlights a range of specific clinical problems and conditions commonly encountered with older patients. Critically, all of these units emphasize important examination and diagnostic procedures needed for a thorough evaluation and stress interventions that can be of significant benefit to the older patient. The ninth unit presents select physical therapeutic interventions that are especially important in managing rehabilitative care. Key societal issues related to aging are discussed in the tenth unit. Finally, the concluding eleventh unit focuses on the successful rehabilitation team that includes both professional and non-professional caregiver members.
