Aquatic Therapy

Healing waters: get pain relief and increased mobility

Aquatic therapy is typically the first step in rehabilitation for post-surgical patients or patients suffering from a painful injury. Water serves as a highly effective, nearly weightless environment that offers the ability to improve strength, flexibility, and function to progress recovery.

The Hydroworx 300 is a revolutionary underwater treadmill that allows patients to rehabilitate injuries while only bearing 20-25% of their weight. 

Discover the Benefits

Of Aquatic Therapy

The aquatic environment provides a weightless environment that allows our patients to perform exercises without significant impact on their spine or joints.

Allows for comfort for the patient, but also provides a cooling environment to post surgical areas that are usually above average body temperature, 98-101 degrees.

The water creates an advantage (buoyancy effect) which allows patients to perform range of motion exercise in the pool that they would not be able to perform safely on land.
