Our Aquatic Rehab Program is Customized to You
Aquatic physical therapy applies standard physical therapy practices & principles but with the patient in the water.
Before initiating aquatic physical therapy, the patient is evaluated by a physical therapist in the clinic and a personalized plan of care is determined.
Most patients are guided through exercises with the therapist on the pool deck; should you require a higher level of assistance, the therapist may be able to be in the water with you.
