Aquatic physical therapy can have benefits for a wide variety of patients and diagnoses. This type of rehabilitation can help an individual regain function after an injury.
At the same time it helps maintain or improve your current level of fitness while the body heals. It is a safe and progressive type of rehabilitation, because it takes place in a gravity eliminated/reduced environment and diminishes impact from weight-bearing joints. You do not need to know how to swim to participate and your treatment will be directed by a licensed physical therapist.
Activities may include water walking, running, stabilization, flotation and using various buoyancy or resistance producing equipment.
General strengthening exercise using water as resistance or assistance, depending upon the goal of treatment, will also be incorporated into your program.
When appropriate, aquatic and land-based therapies are combined for optimal results.
