In-ground Aquatic Therapy Pool Equipped with an underwater treadmill, our pool allows for utilization of buoyancy, water resistance, and hydrostatic pressure to build strength, restore joint mobility, and reduce edema. Aquatic therapy significantly reduces weight bearing forces through the spine and lower extremities and will allow your patients to regain function without the pain sometimes associated with exercise on land. In addition, your patients can start the rehabilitation process much faster in water versus land when there are factors such as weightbearing restrictions, mobility limitations, and acute pain.

Aquatic therapy offers an alternative form of rehabilitation and can be used in conjunction with more traditional outpatient therapies.

Individuals with a variety of disabilities and orthopedic conditions can benefit from participation in aquatic therapy. People with back problems, knee injuries, ankle injuries, and other orthopaedic injuries are just a few of who can benefit from aquatic therapy. While the pool can be used as a tool in most rehabilitation programs it is important to speak with your physician to see if aquatic therapy is right for you. The heat of the pool can be problematic for certain neurological and cardiac conditions. Careful screening and program development by a physical therapist will assure safe participation. Though aquatic therapy is not recommended for certain medical conditions, the vast majority of people can participate. Swimming experience is not necessary.
