Accommodating our patients is our priority which is why we have convenient on-site and off-site locations for aquatic therapy. Our pools provide partial and non-weight bearing activities along with exercise equipment to monitor treatment programs on the road to recovery.
Several of our aquatic programs are based on the Burdenko Method developed by Dr. Igor N. Burdenko. Click here to learn more.
