What is Aquatic Physical Therapy?

Aquatic therapy is the practice of rehabilitation by a trained therapist within the environment of a water-filled pool. The buoyancy, support and accommodating resistance of water enhance exercise and create a safe environment for progressive rehabilitation. The temperature of the warm water prompts muscle relaxation, facilitates stretching and generally reduces the sensation of pain.

Treatment sessions conducted by our trained therapists are designed to:
  • Improve circulation
  • Strength and endurance
  • bBalance and coordination
  • iIncrease range of motion
  • Decrease tissue swelling
  • Normalize muscle tone
  • Protect joints during exercise
  • Reduce stress
Typical problems and conditions that can be treated effectively through aquatic physical therapy techniques are:
  • Injuries to the neck, shoulder, low back, knee and ankle
  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neurological disorders
  • Conditions limiting the bodys ability to bear weight
