The Burdenko Method is a unique, innovative system for rehabilitation, conditioning and injury prevention. It has been developed and refined by Igor N. Burdenko PhD (pictured above, center, with Cape Cod Rehab owner and Burdenko Master Instructor, Joe Carroll) over a period of 40 years in both the former Soviet Union and the United States. Many individuals from Olympic athletes to the general public have benefited from this original and extraordinarily effective system.

The Burdenko Method utilizes both land based and aquatic exercises as a novel way of using your body to optimize health and prevent injury. The Burdenko Method uses a unique combination of water and land exercises to enhance conditioning, increase neurophysiologic efficiency and heal injuries. Both Cape Cod Rehab and FitPlan use the Burdenko Method extensively in both our physical therapy treatment and fitness programs to help develop the six essential qualities of life and sport: balance, flexibility, coordination, endurance, speed, and strength.


"Once in every few decades, a brilliant innovator makes a quantum leap in the way that we can relate to, and care for our bodies. Igor Burdenko is such a person. His genius lies in discovering the power of water to enhance health, accelerate healing and prevent injury."
