Aquatic Therapy Locations
What temperature is the water kept at?
Our aquatic therapy pool is kept at a very comfortable 94-96 degrees temperature.
What are some of the benefits of receiving my therapy in the water vs traditional methods?
The water’s natural buoyancy removes the stress and pressure off your muscles and joints while completing your therapeutic exercises. Immersing in warm water also raises your body temperature and relaxes your muscles. This can benefit individuals with fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease, post-polio syndrome and many others.
What should I wear to my aquatic therapy sessions?
A comfortable bathing suit or swim trunks are recommended as well as non-skid water shoes.
What is provided at the campus for use with aquatic therapy?
You will have access to a dressing room with a shower, lockers to store your belongings, and towels.
Are there any pre-surgical benefits to aquatic therapy?
Strengthening the muscles prior to surgery is proven to reduce the recovery time following surgery. Receiving treatment from licensed physical and occupational therapists specializing in aquatic therapy, partnered with the underwater treadmill and buoyancy of the water creates an opportunity for muscle strengthening and improved rehabilitation outcomes.
