Superior Physical Therapy offers Aquatic Therapy for patients who suffer from acute or chronic pain, poor balance, and other conditions that make it difficult to exercise or improve mobility.

Pool therapy exercise programs consist of a variety of treatments and exercises that are done in a pool and may be specifically designed to provide relief of low back pain or neck pain. These exercises also serve to condition and strengthen muscles to help avoid future recurrences of back pain.

 

 

Ideal for Patients:

  • Who experience pain while exercising
  • Returning to exercise after surgery
  • Who have fear of falling
  • Have significant swelling in their feet, legs, or arms
  • Who have Osteoarthritis
  • With Advanced osteoporosis (with susceptibility to and/or pain from fracture)
  • Who have Muscle strain or tears
  • Who want to improve their strength, flexibility, or cardiovascular endurance

Water therapy is frequently recommended as one form of exercise therapy to treat those with diabetes as well as individuals with high blood pressure. Both conditions can improve and become more manageable with aquatic exercise.

These conditions make it uncomfortable or painful to exercise on hard surfaces or even padded surfaces, and especially while standing. Water Therapy provides a much gentler, welcoming, and comfortable environment.
