Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy

Our aquatic therapy program offers an alternative form of rehabilitation and can be used in conjunction with other traditional outpatient therapies. The pool is an environment uniquely suited to facilitate the healing of neurological and musculoskeletal problems. 

  • The buoyancy of water unloads joints and enables greater pain-free range of movement
  • The neutral warmth of water decreases pain and relaxes muscles
  • The resistance of water provides an excellent medium for increasing strength and endurance 

Aquatic therapy is prescribed for individuals with a variety of orthopedic conditions, disabilities, and therapeutic exercise needs, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Overuse or repetitive motion injuries
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Back Pain
  • Hip, knee, and ankle pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neurological disorders, including stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease
  • Bariatric care
  • Prenatal exercise

Careful screening and program development by a physical therapist assures safe participation.  Though aquatic therapy is not recommended for certain medical conditions, the vast majority of people can participate.  Swimming experience not necessary.
