Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy combines the benefits of physical therapy and occupational therapy with the advantages of warm water exercise.

Aquatic therapy maximizes the potential for recovery as an integrated part of a complete physical therapy or occupational therapy program. For patients who cannot exercise on land, the aquatic pool is used as a tool to transition to land-based rehabilitation.

About the aquatic therapy pool:

  • 16 x 12 three-tiered pool [4′, 4’6, and 6′ (for NWB exercise)]
  • Underwater treadmill (variable height to change weight-bearing levels)
  • Pool temperature of 92 degrees for therapeutic benefits

Disorders treated in aquatic therapy include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Bone, joint or muscle disorders
  • Neurological and developmental disorders
  • Sensory processing/integration disorders
  • Connective tissue diseases
  • Orthopaedic injuries
