Aquatic therapy is a valuable and additional tool in the rehabilitation process and can bring out a new found sense of mobility and confidence in patients. The unique properties of water provide an excellent medium for rehabilitation therapies. Just being in the water provides patients momentum for movement, resistance to improve strength, heat for relaxation, pressure for improved circulation, and helps the patient increase his or her balance and coordination and is less stressful on joints
Ultimately, aquatic therapy can decrease spasms, inflammation and pain, increase patient endurance and strength, improve postures and function, and teach exercise techniques and gait habits that return individuals to activity as quickly and safely as possible.
At Agility Physical Therapy and Wellness, we want this experience to be comfortable, individualized for each patient's goals and diagnosis, and our therapist treat hands on to ensure the maximal benefit of the therapy.
