About Aquatic Physical Therapy

Aquatic physical therapycan be performed by a licensed physical therapist or occupational therapist. It uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. These properties include buoyancy, which allows less weight bearing through the joints, and viscosity, or resistance, which is patient controlled by the speed of the exercises. Pressure from the water assists in promoting circulation and decreasing swelling. During therapy, the water in our aquatic therapy pools is kept at a comfortable temperature of 92-94 degrees. This warmth allows a calming effect that improves a patient's tolerance to exercise and overall function.

The aquatic environment prepares patients, through aquatic rehab, for dry land therapeutic exercises they may not yet be ready to perform. The aquatic therapy pools are also used in combination with dry land exercises and/or manual therapy.
