Ben Waller Exercises

These Ben Waller aquatic therapy exercises are developed to assist therapists involved in providing therapeutic aquatic exercises. It contains exercises utilising different water depths, positions and a wide variety of aquatic equipment. Specific focus is on functional movements and core stability.

Product details

Although primarily developed with musculoskeletal problems, sports injuries and post operative situations in mind, these exercises can be applied to a wide range of groups. Using current ideas and philosophies in rehabilitation (for example, correction of movement disorders and core stability) it provides an up-to-date and dynamic set of therapeutic aquatic exercises. Although there can be found the usual joint mobilising, stretching and strengthening exercises, there has been specific focus on functional movements and core stability. Different aquatic running techniques are also included with video to assist in client instruction. The exercises make use of all the unique properties of water, in particular buoyancy and drag, as well as the metacentric effects. A good understanding of the effect of immersion in water will allow the therapist to adapt the exercises, and create a very specific exercise program for their clients. Includes evidence based exercises.
