The unique properties of water provide an excellent medium for rehabilitation therapies. Buoyancy reduces the stress on joints and muscles, hydrostatic pressure can decrease swelling, and the heat of the pool can relax muscles and help ease pain. The body moves more freely and easily than on land.

Ultimately, aquatic therapy can decrease spasms, inflammation and pain, increase patient endurance and strength, improve postures and function, and teach exercise techniques and gait habits that return individuals to activity as quickly and safely as possible.

Patients who benefit from Aquatic Therapy may be suffering from:

  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Balance Disorders
  • Brain Injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hip and knee problems
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Post-op Breast Surgery
  • Rotator cuff and shoulder problems
  • Stroke related conditions
  • Total joint replacement recovery

Aquatic Therapy may not be right for you if you suffer from acute joint problems of instability, vestibular difficulties, or have fear of the water.
