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.
