Physical therapists are often tasked with helping clients who have limited movement capabilities on land. These include individuals with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, dystonia and fibromyalgia, as well as those who have undergone ACL reconstruction surgery or total knee arthroplasty. Rather than relying on a “one size fits all” approach and trying to force these clients to work in an uncomfortable environment, the best physical therapy professionals rely on a multitude of tools at their disposal. These tools sometimes include specialized therapy pools where the benefits of underwater treatment, rehab and exercise can fuel a client’s progress.

Daniel Seidler, PT, MS and Executive Director of Bronx-based Westchester Square Physical Therapy (WSPT), has spent years building as many resources as he can for the clientele he and his team members serve. A vocal, published proponent of aquatic therapy and exercise, he invested in an advanced therapy pool with underwater treadmill years ago, and regularly utilizes it as a part of his therapy toolbox. To help others in his field understand how to make use of hydrotherapy as a versatile means to successful client outcomes, he will present a one-hour webinar hosted by HydroWorx.

Seidler’s webinar, “Therapeutic Versatility and Value of Aquatic Therapy,” will be held on Thursday, January 28, 2016, from 1-2 p.m. E.S.T. The live event will cover several key topics:

  •     How a physical therapist can use a warm-water therapy pool as a modality for effective rehab and exercise.
  •     Case studies from Seidler’s own practice where patients benefitted from their ability to have access to aquatic therapy equipment and sessions.
  •     The conditions that are most frequently treated at WSPT by physical therapists using their HydroWorx therapy pool.
  •     How to market aquatic therapy as part of a physical therapy practice to increase referrals and expand business.

“Therapeutic Versatility and Value of Aquatic Therapy” is free to attend, but registration is required by visiting the registration page.
