" I came to ATW to address a chronic low back problem.  The therapists provide constant one on one in the pool and felt from the beginning that they cared about me and helping me get better.  By addressing my whole body, they're not only helping me strengthen my back through exercise but are teaching me proper body mechanics so I hold and move my body in ways that don't irritate my back.  The warm water pool provides a relaxing environment.  I wouldn't go anywhere else now that I've been to ATW and would give them the highest recommendation."

Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need a physician's prescription to come in for therapy?

In Illinois, physical therapy is coordinated with the care of a medical or chiropractic physician.  You don't need a prescription to have an evaluation or to have a consultation. However, a physician signature on the evaluation is required in order to proceed with therapy.

Do I have to do my therapy in the water?

NO! We treat patients in our clinic using more traditional therapy methods.  But many find the water to be surprisingly comfortable and effective.

What insurances do you take?

We accept most BCBS plans, Medicare and Medicare supplement plans. We also accept Tricare and several other small plans.  If you have Affordable Healthcare plan, we can apply for coverage short term because we ARE THE ONLY certified aquatic therapists in the area.

What are my options if my plan is not  accepted?

Our goal is to not turn anyone away.  With that said, we have developed a self-pay option and a few other creative options to help you recover and get on your way.  We do advise that you schedule a FREE consultation to see if we can create a program to work for you.

What do I need to bring for water therapy?

We have his and her handicap restrooms complete with lockers and showers.  You will need to bring a towel and water footwear is always highly recommended. If changing clothes is a challenge, we also recommend wearing your bathing underneath your clothes when you come to therapy.
