In the world of high school, collegiate, professional and even recreational American football, there is one certainty: injuries will happen. Some of the more common ones facing athletes include the ACL and MCL, ankles, shoulders and hamstrings. Traditional rehabilitation involves land-based exercises, but the return to game time for players who only rehab on land can be a slow process due to discomfort and limited mobility. This is the reason innovative sports leaders like Rod Scott, Associate Athletic Training for the Jacksonville Jaguars, are turning to aquatic therapy for assistance.

Scott has become one of the foremost believers in the value of hydrotherapy as a complement to land-based therapies for injured athletes. On Thursday, July 21, 2016, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. E.D.T., he will share his experiences live during “Incorporating Aquatic Therapy Into Functional Rehab for Return to Play Protocols and Progressions.”

A few of the topics Scott will discuss in-depth during this event include:

  • How the Jacksonville Jaguars use hydrotherapy equipment for full-extremity aquatic therapy of injured players.
  • The protocols Scott uses for incorporating aquatic therapy into rehab strategies.
  • Demonstrations of progressive exercises that foster transitions throughout the period of recovery.
  • Demonstrations of beneficial equipment and peripherals that support aquatic therapy modalities.

All information presented will be supplemented with images, video and case studies. At the end of “Incorporating Aquatic Therapy Into Functional Rehab for Return to Play Protocols and Progressions”, participants will have time to ask questions.
