Middletown, PA (PRWEB) June 10, 2013
Football is more than an international pastime; it’s a sport that has fans far and wide. As with all athletic endeavors, intense games and practices can lead to minor, major and career-ending injuries. However, footballers around the globe, as well as the physiotherapists who train them, are learning about the most innovative methods to help the body heal itself faster and with less chance of long-lasting detrimental effects. One such method is the use of hydrotherapy in a HydroWorx pool with an embedded underwater treadmill floor.
St. George’s Park National Football Centre has embraced HydroWorx hydrotherapy technologies as a means of getting footballers back on the pitch, and other athletes in the best shape of their lives. That’s why St. George’s is the host site for a seminar entitled: An Introduction to HydroWorx for the Sports Injury Rehabilitation Professional.
On Monday, June 24, 2013, from 9:00-14:00, hydrotherapy experts, including a Premier League physiotherapist, will offer a practical, energetic seminar related to advanced water therapy in order to give attendees ways to help healthy athletes maintain their fitness levels through cross-training in a HydroWorx pool; and assist injured athletes in their quest to get back in the game as quickly and safely as possible.
This one-day event offers an introduction to the value of aquatic therapy for performance and rehabilitation. Throughout the informally-structured event featuring hands-on, experiential learning, participants will:
- Gain a better understanding of how aquatics and its variety of protocols can be used to treat common sports-related injuries.
- Learn the unique features afforded by a HydroWorx pool with embedded underwater treadmill.
- Learn how to accelerate an athlete’s recovery and performance.
- View demonstrations of underwater treadmill running, functional exercises, proprioception, power-based exercises, strength-based work, upper extremity exercises and more.
- See how to seal wounds for protection when employing hydrotherapy solutions.
This complementary event at St. George’s Park includes lunch and a tour of Spire Perform, located on the grounds. Registration is limited due to the popularity of the topic. To register, complete the form located here.
