Halliwick Aquatic Therapy - Water Specific Therapy

From 04 August 2021 until 08 August 2021
This time the special focus of the course will be about influencing neuroinflammation with aquatic therapy. Neuroinflammation - is the driver of central sensitization in chronic and widespread pain - can be a part of chronic low grade systemic inflammation; a life-style disease which is suggested to be related with e.g. osteoarthritis - is a cause for Alzheimer, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease - is seen in stroke and traumatic brain injury - is prevalent in the long haul post Covid This means that relations exist between neuroinflammation and neuromusculoskeletal problems that we encounter in allied health care. Therapeutic interventions have to address the immuno-metabolic system by influencing endothelium of blood vessels, the hypothalamus, hippocampus, prefrontal cortex and other brain regions. Keywords in aquatic therapy are aerobic training, environmental enrichment and executive functions. These elements can be related to fall prevention in case of impaired balance during posture and gait. Interventions could be described as aquatic motor-cognitive exergaming.
