Conditions That May Benefit from Aquatic Therapy:

What Aquatic Therapy Can Do for You

  • Reduce stress on your joints, allowing you to perform exercises to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility that may be difficult to do on the ground.
  • Help you ease into activity and start rehabilitation earlier after an injury or surgery, without carrying your full body weight. This is also a great way for athletes to maintain conditioning.
  • Provide relief for aching joints and muscles and improve blood circulation with the help of warm water and reduced gravity.
  • Offer an engaging therapy environment that uses water’s natural resistance and buoyancy, making therapy more fun and enjoyable.
