Kara Morales, MSPT, has become the worlds first Musculoskeletal Aquaticist℠ after completing her Hands-On Aquatic Therapy Techniques class in Hudson, WI this past weekend. This achievement recognizes Kara's 3000 treatment hours and nearly 4 years of aquatic education, who first dipped her foot in the pool in 2006.
"I'm proud to have this credential through ATU and I appreciate their hard work and dedication to provide high-quality continuing education for aquatics," said Morales. "Plus the ribbon and seal make it look extra special!"
The Aquaticist℠ program at ATU is challenging, requiring 84 hours of instruction in the pediatric, geriatric and musculo fields. It is the only aquatic credential awarded exclusively to licensed therapists and is the only aquatic program certified by the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
