Aquatic Therapy
Aquatic therapy is a progressive exercise program set in a warm therapeutic pool. Using water’s buoyant and resistive properties, patients can improve their range of motion, strength, muscle tone, endurance, balance, coordination, posture, relaxation and pain control.

Licensed therapists provide one-on-one care sessions that appropriately challenge patients to help them reach their goals. By increasing their tolerance for functional activities, patients can return to sports and work faster and have an improved sense of well-being.

Conditions treated:

  • Spine surgery
  • Total joint replacement
  • Knee and hip surgeries
  • Shoulder
  • Sports-related injury and repair
  • Back pain
  • Neurological Disorders (multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke)
  • Arthritis, fibromyalgia
  • Post-cancer recovery
  • Pregnancy-related pain

Benefits of aquatic therapy:

  • Active healing by increasing a patient’s ability to participate in therapy
  • Decreases joint compression, swelling and pain during exercise
  • Faster recovery, reduced discomfort and injury prevention
