Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy

When certain land-based exercises are not possible because of disability and pain, we are able to offer aquatic therapy as a gentler, more beneficial environment to rapidly improve mobility, strength, and function.

Aquatic therapy is offered on both an inpatient and outpatient basis, and is frequently used in conjunction with land-based physical therapy, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy. Aquatic therapy can benefit patients who are receiving treatment for many injuries and illnesses, including:

  • Brain Injury
  • Pain Disorder
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Sports Injury

Patients may experience the following benefits:

  • Accelerated rehabilitation
  • Reduced stress
  • Decreased swelling
  • Improvements in gait or posture
  • Increased circulation
  • Increased strength and endurance
  • Increased range of motion and flexibility
  • Increased balance and coordination
  • Increased muscle tone

Our State-of-the-Art Facility

With two therapy pools, we are able to offer the ideal atmosphere for all aquatic therapy sessions depending on each patient’s individual needs.
