There are unique benefits to aquatic rehabilitation.
Aquatic physical therapy has been clinically and scientifically proven to be an effective treatment for many musculoskeletal, neurological, cardio-pulmonary, and immunological disorders.
The physical properties of water including buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and viscosity provide a therapeutic environment that cannot always be achieved with land rehabilitation.
The aquatic environment can be effectively utilized in the progression of:
- Functional land activities
- Conditioning and endurance
- Sport-specific activities
Therapy pools are a safe environment for injuries and conditions in all stages of rehabilitation. In many cases, hydrotherapy in the acute stage of rehabilitation can be initiated earlier than land-based therapy.
