Aqua Therapy

Aqua Therapy

Aquatic Therapy is a system of exercises and activities designed to utilize water’s unique healing benefits. In the rehabilitation process, the buoyancy of the water helps to reduce joint compression. Following injury or surgery, range of motion and weight-bearing exercises can be initiated more quickly without causing undue stress to the healing tissues and bone. The high density of water also creates increased resistance against the movement, thus providing more feedback and increasing the effectiveness of strengthening exercises. Aquatic therapy has been proven as an effective treatment and rehabilitation medium for many health conditions including the following:


• Low Back Pain

• Orthopedic Rehab

• Pain Management

• Arthritis

• Fibromyalgia

• Post Surgical Rehab

• Sports Medicine & Conditioning

• Sports Enhancement
