Certain conditions and injuries are best treated while you are in the water. By conducting your care in water that is maintained at therapeutic temperatures, you will have greater control over your movement with less pain as your body is partially supported by the water.
Aquatic therapy is used to treat a variety of medical conditions and diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, strokes, Parkinson's disease, obesity, muscular dystrophy, post-surgical total knee replacements, hip replacements and spinal surgeries. The use of water allows you to function at levels that are not possible outside of this environment, which affords positive physical gains. The goal of aquatic therapy is to progress you to a more functional, land-based program. You do not have to be a swimmer to participate or benefit from aquatic therapy.
