Our Aquatic Therapy is an exciting form of treatment, delivered by specially trained physical therapists in a pool setting. Not only is it a refreshing change of pace from land-based therapy, but can also be used in cases where individuals are in a great deal of pain and are not able to put full weight on limbs. The buoyancy of the water can reduce weight-bearing on the body by as much as 80%. It also has a positive impact on motion and flexibility, reduces pressure to joints, and can increase the blood flow to injured areas. Aquatic Therapy is a great way to gain motion, and in some cases, can help prepare you for landbased therapy.
Common conditions appropriate for the pool include:
- Post-operation rehab of total joint replacements.
- Post-operative fractures.
- Arthritis of any joint.
- Sports re-training.
- Severe back pain.
- Post-op ligament surgeries (ACL, rotator cuff repairs).
- Balance disorders.
- Neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis,
- Strokes, and Parkinson’s disease.
