What is Aquatic Therapy?
Physical Therapy sessions that take place in a pool.Most individuals with orthopedic or neurological dysfunctions can benefit from pool therapy. In fact, most people can function better initially in the pool, allowing for quicker recovery.
Pain associated with joint stresses and weight bearing is greatly reduced due to the buoyancy provided by the water. This allows for earlier functional exercises, especially after surgery or injury. The water helps to decrease swelling and increase circulation, improves range of motion, and provides a resistance necessary to strengthen weak muscles.
Aquatic Therapy has been proven to be an effective way to increase strength, range of motion and function quicker and easier for many patients! Come make a splash!
