HydroWorx Webinar Targets Aquatic Exercises for GeriAthletes

There are few statistics available related to GeriAthletes, seniors who continue to take their athleticism to competitive levels as they age. Despite that fact, physical therapists who work with individuals ages 65+ who compete in foot races, triathlons and similar events know that GeriAthletics is a growing, and necessary, field. To help professionals interested in learning how to train GeriAthletes using underwater modalities, HydroWorx is offering a one-hour webinar led by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, president and co-owner of Northwest Rehabilitation Associates.

The event, “GeriAthletics: Training Competitive Athletes Over 65 Years of Age with Higher Intensities Underwater”, will be held on March 8, 2016, from 1-2 p.m. E.S.T. During this webinar, Studer will discuss his strategies for creating individualized aquatic programs for senior athletes. Studer’s expertise in this area has been honed through his research on how Olympic, professional and collegiate athletes are currently using water to safely build and/or maintain their abilities without risking overuse or overtraining injuries.

Additionally, “GeriAthletics: Training Competitive Athletes Over 65 Years of Age with Higher Intensities Underwater” will focus on ideas to market and implement aquatic exercise programs to GeriAthletes. As a bonus, Studer will share his experiences with third party reimbursement, private pay, consultation and capitated contractor models. At the conclusion of the webinar, Studer will lead a 15-20 minute question and answer session.

Registration for this free HydroWorx webinar can be made online prior to the start date and time at
