A licensed therapist will evaluate you on land and then design a customized pool treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. Your plan will be periodically updated based on your progress. Your care will be provided by a licensed health care professional.
Ask your doctor for a prescription/referral for aquatic therapy. Most insurances are accepted, but the therapy/program coverage depends on individual insurance benefits. Discount programs are available for those that qualify.
Aquatic therapy program
Aquatic therapy is a specialized type of therapy treatment that involves performing exercises and mobility activities in the water, typically in a heated, therapeutic pool. The water’s buoyancy reduces the weight and stress on your spine and extremity joints, allowing you to perform movements that might be difficult, painful or uncomfortable on land.
The temperature of the pool water is usually maintained between 92-96 degrees Fahrenheit. The warm water assists in relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to injured and painful areas. When pool jets are available, they can be used and adjusted to provide customized resistance levels for your specific strengthening needs.
