Rebound Therapy

Rebound Therapy is the therapeutic use of trampolines. It is used clinically to facilitate movement, improve balance, impact muscle tone, improve communication, promote relaxation as well as improve fitness and exercise capacity. It is a therapeutic intervention aimed at populations with special needs and can benefit a wide range of individuals including those with physical disabilities, learning difficulties, sensory impairments and those on the autistic spectrum. This course will focus on an introduction to Rebound Therapy; its indications; contraindications; safety considerations; measuring and recording progress as well as practical examples of Rebound Therapy for physically challenged patients with Cerebral Palsy and Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities as well as able-bodied individuals with learning disabilities. This course does not imply validation as a Rebound Therapy practitioner, but it does offer useful knowledge for the candidate to operate in an assistant capacity to a qualified Rebound Therapy practitioner.  However there is a 30% discount on the full online distance learning Level 2 Rebound Therapy course to all who complete the Physiopedia course and wish to become a validated Rebound Therapy practitioner.
