Aquatic Therapy

Experienced physical therapists with advanced training utilize the 30′ x 60′ pool, which features a ramp entrance for easy access.  The pool temperature is maintained at a controlled 87 degrees while air temperature at 88 degrees to allow for maximum comfort during transitions. Aquatic Therapy is available by appointment with your therapist.

Warm water therapy offers a safe and gentle environment where people can overcome the effects of gravity and receive rehabilitation for a variety of injuries or disabilities. This environment allows the body not just to receive a low impact treatment but the warm water enhances their abilities to function and receive treatment simultaneously. The warm water offers ease and comfort even for those patients in pain or recuperating from an injury.

Aquatic therapy is useful for strengthening and flexibility exercises and treatments, pain reduction, endurance, relaxation, balance and coordination, and is generally recommended in treating:

  • Orthopedic injuries such as knee and hip replacements
  • Treatment of fractures or chronic pains
  • Sports related injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatic disorders
  • Pulmonary and cardiac disorders
