Inquiries in Sport & Physical Education
It also follows training guidelines of physiology and its clinical reasoning in various patient populations. Many activities easily can be repeated and varied and clients can learn balance- and stumble- strategies, which have carry-over effects to dry land.
A Ten Point Program is used to reach these goals. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Halliwick also has a passive static component, in which, for example involving selective activation of muscles and stabilization of specific joints by the therapist.
Buoyancy forces counteract gravity forces and create rotational torques meta-centric effects.
Decreased heart rate Decreased rate of respiration Increased depth of respiration Increased peripheral vasodilatation Increased smooth muscle activity digestion Decreased activation of striated muscles skeletal Decreased spasticity Decreased muscle spasm Decreased reticular activating system RAS activity Enhanced immune system response. You can not take part if you suffer from any of the following conditions: Most Halliwick therapy is active dynamic to facilitate movement and sensory input.
Frees the spinal vertebrae Rotates joint articulations Elongates muscles All of the above benefits are simply not possible with land exercise. The most important part of this program is rotational control.
It has resemblances to Bobath and Conductive education. The Halliwick Ten-Point-Programme implements condept concept in a progressive programme of mental adjustment, disengagement, and development of motor control, with an emphasis on rotational control, and applies the programme to teach physically disabled people balance controlswimmingand independence.
The Halliwick Concept
Independence is an important prerequisite for participation in therapeutic, vocational or recreational activities in a group: Lessen pain sensitivity Stimulate the immune system Aid lymphatic drainage Increase blood circulation It is also likely to leave you both physically and mentally relaxed. Turbulent moving water provides resistancetherefore the one will lose balance slowly and has time to react.
Halliwick Aquatic Therapy is a system-oriented aquatic motor re learning approach, which includes elements of the Ten-Point-Programme. Halliwick Aquatic Therapy is a problem-solving approach, in that specific possibilities and constraints of the client are analyzed in order to plan a systematic intervention to help the client gain functional increases. In this sense Halliwick is a constraint-induced movement therapy without the disadvantage of gravity compensation.
In neurological and pediatric rehabilitation, people can experience early mobility. There are several precautions you need to consider before participating the thermal aquatic bodywork:. Hydrotherapy Halliick Physical medicine and rehabilitation Physical therapy.
These torques can be used to increase load on connective tissue. What is the Halliwick Concept?
Promoting the Halliwick Concept of Swimming & Rehabilitation in Water
Halliwick Aquatic Therapy has mainly used in neurorehabilitation and pediatrics. Mostly Halliwick is dynamic to help movement and sensory input. The concise guide to physiotherapy – 2-volume set: The second part of the concept, Halliwick Aquatic Therapy also known as Water Specific Therapy, WSTapplies the fundamental biophysical principles and the underlying principles of the Ten-Point-Programme for planning and implementing patient-specific aquatic therapy.
McMillan emphasized participation and independence: Health Benefits Activities in warm water: Aquatic therapy Swimming Physical therapy Rehabilitation medicine Hydrotherapy.

This reaction is thought to: Buoyancy provides an easy way to change position, which influences the vestibular system as in sensory integration. Body temperature water offers a unique and ideal medium for freeing energy. Halliwick also enables a graded activity program:
