Aquatic Therapy is used to restore pain-free functional abilities necessary for work, daily living, and recreational activities. In the water, weight bearing on the joints is greatly reduced, allowing for exercise to be performed with reduced pain levels.
Utilized by a skilled practitioner, the hydrodynamic principles of water can be effectively used to increase movement, flexibility, strength, balance and endurance. The therapist can initiate active rehabilitation in the water earlier in the recovery process, helping facilitate movements that the patient would normally be unable to perform on land.
Examples of Conditions Treated with Aquatic Therapy Are:
Post-surgical joint replacements
Low back pain/disc herniation
Injury Specific Therapy
An individual hydrotherapy program is designed for the patient based on the specific problem areas identified in the initial assessment.
Therapy is progressive and directed towards a functional recovery on land.
Aquatic Therapy will include flexibility, range of motion (ROM), strengthening, core stabilization, posture corrections and functional movement integration (restoring normal movement of the injured area).
Patients are taught exercises to do on their own once competent.
