Biomechanical and Physiological Alterations in the Aquatic Environment
June 4, 2021 from 12:00 - 2:00pm EDT
Presented by: Nick Held and Erin Bussin
Join Nick Held and Erin Bussin for a webinar on Biomechanical and Physiological Alterations in the Aquatic Environment. This webinar is going to review current research on the effects of aquatic treadmill running on biomechanics as well as identify gaps in current research. Nick and Erin will discuss the key elements of water immersion and how a clinician can combine these with the effects on physiology and biomechanics to create an effective training program with aquatic therapy.
- Remember the key characteristics of water immersion that act on the human body during exercise.
- Identify and compare various expected and/or unexpected alterations in the physiology and biomechanics of aquatic treadmill running.
- Evaluate the inconsistencies in the current literature as well as gaps in the literature and clinical practice.
- Apply concepts to implement an effective training and rehabilitation program using aquatic therapy.
Continuing Education: This course is intended for athletic trainers. 2 CEUs are available through the BOC for athletic trainers who watch the live webinar in its entirety.
Cancellation Policy: HydroWorx reserves the right to change or cancel this webinar dependent on unforeseen circumstances for the speakers or HydroWorx.
Prior to his return to Kingston, Nick spent two years working as the Sport Scientist for Field Hockey Canada helping prepare the Men’s National Field Hockey team for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Erin Bussin, has treated 4 years in aquatic settings for rehab and recovery. She most recently worked for the integrated team at Fortius Sport & Health, Performance Rehabilitation Coach, Hydrotherapy Lead Erin Bussin brings her experience of working with special populations in both the clinical and research setting. Erin earned her Master of Science in Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of British Columbia. Prior to Fortius, she spent 2 years in the research environment attaining skills to better help design and implement evidence-based rehabilitation programs. She is always looking for ways to expand her knowledge of health and wellness, performance, and maximizing client potential. Outside of work, Erin’s passion is Ultimate. Erin is an avid ultimate player, an active member in Canadian Ultimate governance, and she coaches the UBC development team in her spare time.
