Offered at our Ivyland office, aquatic therapy can help you get back to the land-based activities you are missing. The unique properties of water improve the healing process.
The Buoyancy of water reduces the weight bearing stress of gravity by up to 70%. This can mean starting recovery sooner after injury or surgery.
Hydrostatic Pressure assists in venous return, lowers heartrate and controls inflammation while exercising. In addition, heated water relaxes muscles, improves flexibility and eases movement.
Viscosity provides increased resistance in all directions for strengthening opposing muscle groups and improving balance. Floats, paddles and water weights can be added for more targeted strength work.
An initial evaluation will be conducted on land. Your therapist will discuss the findings and determine how aquatic therapy may help you meet your goals. The ability to swim independently is not necessary to participate in aquatic therapy.

- Chronic Pain
