Aquatic therapy is used to rehabilitate patients with various movement related health conditions by avoiding compressive forces that would normally be present on joints and the spine when exercising on land.
Aquatic therapy provides a therapeutic advantage using the low impact healing properties of water. Based on your comfort level, shallow water exercises or deep water exercises facilitate low resistance and fluid movements to assist in rehabilitation. Our onsite aquatic facilities provide partial and non-weight bearing activities along with exercise equipment to progress treatment programs as tolerated. The water at each facility is kept at a therapeutic temperature of ~95 degrees fahrenheit. The underwater treadmills at each of our locations allows for low impact cardiovascular workouts or accelerated recovery of normal gait pattern from lower extremity injury or surgery. Our experienced therapists offer constant guidance to optimize your treatment based on individual needs and current condition. When appropriate, hybrid aquatic-land therapy programs are also available.
