You don’t have to be a swimmer to love warm water. We have both stairs and a lift for easy access to the 3 foot deep section. Your therapist is always at your side, working to reduce your pain, help you move, and teach your body to function without so much pain. The warmth has a natural calming effect. As you become comfortable your therapist will provide verbal and hands on instructions on how you can help yourself improve. We use buoyancy devices and weights to assist or resist movement. Every session teaches you new ways to enjoy stretching and strengthening. When you are done, we provide an individualized laminated aquatic program so you can continue to exercise in your own pool or return to our pool by participating in our FitPass program. But if water is not for you, we offer traditional land based therapies as well.
We specialize in Physical Therapy in water so most treatments are provided in our pool. However, everyone needs to learn how to move on land without hurting themselves. For that reason patients may be seen at least once in our clinic to learn body mechanics (moving without injuring yourself) and gait training (how to walk without falling). We also provide pain relieving modalities and education in our clinic. In some cases land therapy is more appropriate: for instance if a patient has a skin condition that does not do well in water, the patient needs a treatment that is best provided on land, or the person prefers to remain dry ( has a cast or device that must remain dry). Many patients will receive a combination of land and water therapy.
