WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING

Aquatic Therapy is a form of physical therapy that utilizes water to bolster the rehabilitative process. Aquatic Therapy has many benefits including:

  • Reducing compressive forces:

    • Water can reduce the stress on the body to 10% of the patient’s total body weight
      • Enables joints to move freely
      • Reduces pain while strengthening
      • Overall conditioning and endurance improvement
  • Increased muscle recruitment & resistance:

    • Increases how many muscles must work as compared to the same exercises completed on land 
    • Allows for instant adjustment of resistance simply by moving more slowly or more quickly 
  • Improved Stability & Safety: 

    • Water supports and stabilizes the body
    • Optimizes conditions for working on balance and mobility with individuals who
      • Have difficulty moving 
      • Demonstrate poor safety with traditional balance and mobility training

Select Therapy’s Aquatic Therapy Program is an excellent way for patients to rehabilitate from injury and improve balance and mobility.
