Prescribing the right aquatic exercise programme for those with functional limitations is challenging, in part because the literature on water exercise is limited. Prescription is made all the more difficult when working with clients and patients with a wide range of limitations. This book shows professionals how to design aquatic rehabilitation and exercise programmes for various groups and individuals of all ages. The authors guide readers in choosing the right exercises for their clients, including the appropriate exercise frequency, intensity and duration based on each client's abilities and limitations. Included are the following features: descriptions of the physiological responses including those of the pulmonary, renal, musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems to immersion and water exercise, preparing clinicians for how the body reacts to an aquatic environment indications and contraindications for participation in water programmes, and providing an understanding of how the physical properties of water and exercise combine advantageously. Also featured are descriptions of the responsibilities of various aquatic team members and patient management across the full spectrum of care. "Aquatic Exercise for Rehabilitation and Training" is liberally illustrated and comes with a DVD that demonstrates nearly half of the book's exercises and highlights key points for each. The DVD also contains printable evaluation sheets that will help readers identify their clients' needs, evaluate specific therapies based on those needs and choose the best therapies for them.
