What you’ll learn in Integrative Approaches to Therapeutic Rehabilitation
Walk away with NEW therapeutic rehabilitation strategies…
Part One: Yoga for Therapeutic Rehabilitation: Learning New Tools & Expanding Your Practice
It’s no secret that yoga has gained popularity in the western world, but did you know that when you incorporate it into your rehab routine with pinpointed techniques, your client’s can release trauma–induced pain they’ve been enduring for decades?
In this section of the online course, you’ll discover exactly how you can use yoga therapeutically with all of your clients!
Every part of the mind and body is affected when you use yoga, from cardiopulmonary to musculoskeletal and the nervous system. Ms. Shandalov makes it easy to understand how using this modality affects your client, and the exact techniques you need to use to achieve specific results. You’ll learn how yoga:
- Aids the body’s systems, including the neuroplasticity benefits for adults and kids
- Reduces pain and tension brought on by physical trauma, including applicable techniques
- Can increase proper breathing and positioning techniques for upright, side-lying, wheelchair and standing clients
- Can affect clients instantly, including dozens of case study examples and live demonstrations
- Allows for better posture, less tension on the joints, increased balance abilities, and so much more
Plus, you’ll get practical applications for dozens of diagnoses, from dependent to active clients across the board.
Part Two: Tai Chi for Health: Solutions for Falls, Fitness, Strength & Stress
This evidence–based session will dive into the transformative effects of Tai Chi and how you can incorporate them into your rehab routine. You’ll get a crash course in the top physical, mental and emotional benefits of this age–old method that’s been rising in popularity over the last few years.
Ralph Dehner, COTA, CPT, will guide you through the latest research, applications and reasons why Tai Chi is an excellent addition to your rehab strategy, regardless of your client’s age. He’ll also show you how it’s pivotal if you treat geriatric clients and how it can be used in fall prevention!
Learning a new set of techniques can be overwhelming, but in this training, you’ll be guided through three main styles of Tai Chi movements and when you should use them. These include:
- Chen Style: The Original Style
- Yang Style: The Most Popular Style
- Sun Style: The Newest Style
Each of the styles you will explore has its own time and place in therapy, and you’ll be able to properly demonstrate and explain their significance to your clients!
