Aquatic Therapy

  • Aquatic TherapyAquatic therapy has long been recognized by physicians, therapists, and athletes as one of the safest, most effective forms of rehabilitation available. Water's natural buoyancy property provides a safe environment for protection against falls, relieves stress on joints by reducing the effects of gravity, and makes movements easier.

    In the initial stages of therapy, you can start performing non-weight bearing activities in the aquatic environment sooner than traditional land-based therapy. The heated pool has a hydraulic lift chair that moves you in and out of the pool safely and features an adjustable no-slip floor that allows the water depth to be set for your individual needs.

    The following conditions respond well to Aquatic Therapy:

    • Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia Acute Low Back Disc Injuries
    • Sports Injuries
    • Total-Joint Replacements
    • Post-Podiatry or Orthopedic Surgery
