Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy incorporates the properties of water to positively impact movement, strength and function. Water is a safe and effective medium to exercise specific muscle groups and joints with substantially less compressive forces than other types of exercise.

Its techniques are designed to move against the buoyancy of water, facilitating exercise by making movement easier and less painful.  We utilize techniques that build on water's natural resistance to improve quality and strength of movement.

The therapeutic, non-weight bearing properties of water create an ideal rehabilitation environment, especially for post-operative patients or those with back injuries.
