Speaker Profile

Eadric Bressel, Utah state university, USA

Dr. Eadric Bressel is a professor and clinical research scientist in the Sports Medicine Program at Utah State University (USU) in Logan, UT. He received his B.S. (1994) and M.S. (1995) in exercise science from California State University, Fresno, and he received his Ph.D. in biomechanics from the University of Northern Colorado (1999).  His aquatic research examines neuromechanical adaptations to therapeutic exercise. With his academic appointment in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Science at USU, Eadric is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Keynote Title:

Acute and chronic changes in neuromuscular function during and after aquatic exercise: a window for therapy.

“Much is known about cardiovascular responses to aquatic immersion and exercise, yet an understanding of the neuromuscular and functional responses to water immersion and training are unclear.  Recent research has identified kinematic differences between land and water environments but it is unclear if these differences make aquatic exercise suboptimal or if kinematic differences in water transfer to land after training. The first part of our presentation will focus on how water immersion itself influences balance and how acute and chronic training influences function and mobility in various populations.  The second part of our presentation will focus on the neuromuscular bases for the observed differences between aquatic and land environments.”
