Special Issue "Immersing in an Enriched Environment: Aquatic Therapy in a Modern Perspective"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Care Sciences & Services".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: aquatic therapy; functioning; disability and rehabilitation
The use of water and its application in aquatic therapy has streamed since the development of the evidence-based practice model. Aquatic therapy provides an enriched environment in which children, adults, and the elderly can participate, with improvements in functioning and quality of life in a wide range of disability conditions. Therapeutic aquatic exercise programs can provide a fun and motivating form of physical activity, supporting the physical, social, and emotional wellbeing of patients. Aquatic therapy has grown enormously today; however, there has been an emphasis on the further research and implementation of aquatic therapy in health care sciences.
This Special Issue welcomes original studies that consider and apply aquatic therapy on health care science. All disability conditions can be addressed. We welcome studies that have the potential to change clinical care settings and health policy.
This Special Issue will provide readers with the state-of-the-art theory and practical information on health research perspectives that determine the uptake of aquatic therapy in the health care science and services.
