Aquatic Therapy

Get Low Impact Treatment With Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is a skilled intervention performed in a pool or other aquatic environment. The buoyancy of the water removes the pressure put on limbs during land-based treatments. This is especially helpful for patients who cannot fully bear the weight needed to successfully complete their plan of care, which further delays healing and progression.

At PT Solutions, our physical therapists are trained and certified in providing treatment plans using aquatic therapy. Your plan will be developed based on your individual needs and goals discussed in our initial evaluation process.

How Does Aquatic Therapy Work?

How Does Aquatic Therapy Work?

Aquatic therapy is essentially physical therapy that takes place in a pool. The difference is that in water, there is less impact on joints. The natural properties of water provide an ideal environment for patients who find it difficult to conduct regular treatments.

Aquatic therapy helps patients achieve:

  • Decrease swelling and improve circulation
  • Enhance tolerance of weight bearing while decreasing load on joints
  • Improve muscle endurance
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Improve cardiovascular function and endurance
