Aquatic Therapy

There are unique benefits to aquatic rehabilitation.

Aquatic physical therapy has been clinically and scientifically proven to be an effective treatment for many musculoskeletal, neurological, cardio-pulmonary, and immunological disorders.

The physical properties of water including buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and viscosity provide a therapeutic environment that cannot always be achieved with land rehabilitation.

The aquatic environment can be effectively utilized in the progression of:

  • Strengthening
  • Weight-bearing
  • Functional land activities
  • Conditioning and endurance
  • Sport-specific activities
  • ROM
  • Gait
  • Balance

Therapy pools are a safe environment for injuries and conditions in all stages of rehabilitation. In many cases, hydrotherapy in the acute stage of rehabilitation can be initiated earlier than land-based therapy.
