Exploration of Creative Pediatric Aquatic Therapy Techniques Topic of HydroWorx Sponsored Webinar


Middletown, PA (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

Children who require physical therapy in response to chronic conditions, accidents or progressive diseases represent a unique patient segment. Unlike their older counterparts, they possess very specific needs. These include, but are not limited to: being smaller in stature than adult patients; having shorter attention spans than older clientele; possessing less inherent strength than adults; and having fewer life experiences from which to draw upon in a rehab setting. Additionally, pediatric clients’ bodies are still developing. These realities must be kept in mind when instituting physical therapy processes with younger patients; they are also part of the reason that many pediatric physical therapists choose aquatic therapy as one of their preferred rehabilitation modalities.

Warm water therapy pools with integrated variable-depth treadmill floors, resistance jets, deep tissue massage capabilities and safety bars provide a safe environment in which pediatric patients can work on meeting functional milestones. Reaching prescribed aquatic therapy goals may then help younger clients transition to land-based activities and even heighten mental functioning, as in the case of pediatric patients who are trying to achieve augmented focus and intellectual stamina. However, the key to working with the pediatric population is to encourage patients using age-appropriate, innovative exercises that stimulate learning and promote enthusiasm.

Amy Arruda, DPT, ATRIC, is the Director of Aquatics at Leg Up Farm, a Pennsylvania-based non-profit therapy center specializing in assisting special needs children. Arruda will be sharing her experiences as a leader in the emerging field of innovative pediatric aquatics during a one-hour webinar sponsored by HydroWorx on Thursday, March 12, 2015, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. E.D.T. The webinar, “Pediatric Aquatic Therapy: Improving Outcomes by Integrating Play and Creativity,” will provide participants with a unique look into the methods utilized by Arruda and her team at Leg Up Farm.

Participants of “Pediatric Aquatic Therapy: Improving Outcomes by Integrating Play and Creativity” will benefit from learning:


    Effective, creative aquatic therapy protocols that keep children engaged in their pool therapy sessions from beginning to end.
    How to customize programs to meet the individual needs of children with a wide variety of conditions.
    How to make land-to-water and water-to-land transitions for pediatric patients.
    Case studies from Leg Up Farm in which aquatic therapy has been successfully used to increase the progress for pediatric clientele.

Arruda brings a wealth of expertise to this event. After Arruda received her MSPT and DPT, she began working in the physical therapy field. She joined the Leg Up Farm team in 2011 and has since achieved an Aquatic Therapy Certification from the Aquatic Therapy and Rehab Institute in 2013. Arruda appreciates opportunities such as this webinar, as they allow her to share her experiences with others in an effort to help all pediatric patients.

Registration for ““Pediatric Aquatic Therapy: Improving Outcomes by Integrating Play and Creativity” is free. Interested attendees can register at http://ww2.hydroworx.com/webinar-pediatric-creativity.

Designing Successful Aquatics Programs for Seniors Topic of HydroWorx Webinar


Middletown, PA (PRWEB) February 20, 2015

Turning 65, 75 or even 85 is different for individuals today than it was only one or two generations ago. After all, it’s no longer uncommon to find seniors in the gym, on the track or on the court. In fact, aging in America can now be referred to as “active aging” thanks to the desire for individuals to stay healthy as long as possible. Of course, the normal process of getting older can make it increasingly difficult to engage in a variety of athletic pursuits, especially those that jar the joints, or put stressors on the upper or lower extremities. Yet for most people who crave the opportunity to freely move their bodies, giving up the pleasure of working out is not an option; instead, they seek out alternative methods such as aquatic programs where they can get all the benefits of regular exercise without the risk of injuries, increased pain or falling.

A webinar-based discussion of this topic, “Road Map to Creating a Successful Aquatics Program for Seniors”, will be offered by HydroWorx, the leading provider of therapy pools, on Tuesday, February 24, from 1-2 p.m. E.S.T. Presented by Rachel McDermott, PTA, former Director of Rehabilitation, and Paul Osterberger, Wellness Director, of Stonehill Care Center in Dubuque, Iowa, the one-hour event will cover a variety of topics including:


The successes of Stonehill Care Center’s aquatic therapy program for their senior living wellness and therapy center residents and clients.
Strategies for starting and continuing an aquatic-focused therapy and wellness program, including marketing tips and techniques to increase community engagement.
Methods to improve the return on investment of an aquatic therapy pool.

Both speakers have extensive backgrounds making them well-suited to explore this discussion with attendees. McDermott has been a director at multiple clinics, where she has continuously been able to utilize her training in nursing rehabilitation and aquatic therapy. She has been the Director of Rehabilitation at Stonehill Care Center for the last 5 years. She recently made the transition to Unity Point Hospital and is now the Director of their Acute Rehab Unit. Osterberger develops all-inclusive programming for fitness classes and workshops to enrich the lives of the members at Stonehill Care Center. Her professional degrees and experiences are in recreation management, health and wellness and mass communications.

Attendance for “Road Map to Creating a Successful Aquatics Program for Seniors” is free, but registration is required prior to the start time. Registration can be made at http://ww2.hydroworx.com/webinar-aquatics-seniors.
