Water helps support body weight and makes it easier to begin therapeutic exercises for injured joints and muscles. Water also provides resistance. This helps develop strength and stamina. Adding water to therapy is always refreshing and fun. The pool is handicap-accessible.
Indications for aquatic therapy include:
- Begin therapy sooner and transition toward or back to land easier and earlier.
- Reduction in weight bearing allows for better ease of exercise and range of motion in joints with a reduction in pain.
- Assists in relaxing, stretching and strengthening exercises.
Once you graduate from your physical therapy program, you will be able to step down to our pool classes that are designed to maintain all of your accomplishments.
We are proud to have these classes organized and taught by licensed professionals trained in water exercise who are interested in your health.
