Aquatic Physical Therapy is the evidence-based and skilled practice of physical therapy in an aquatic environment by a physical therapist, under supervision. Aquatic Physical Therapy includes treatment, rehabilitation, prevention, health, wellness and fitness of patient/client populations in an aquatic environment with or without the use of supportive devices.
The unique properties of the aquatic environment enhance interventions for patients/clients across the age span with musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary, and integumentary diseases, disorders, or conditions.
Aquatic Physical Therapy interventions are designed to improve or maintain:
- Aerobic capacity/endurance conditioning
- Balance, coordination and agility
- body mechanics and postural stabilization
- Gait and locomotion
- Muscle strength, power, and endurance
Interventions used in Aquatic Physical Therapy include, but are not limited to, therapeutic exercise, functional training, manual therapy, breathing strategies, electrotherapeutic modalities, physical agents and mechanical modalities using the properties of water and techniques unique to the aquatic environment.
Our post-rehab program has been designed specifically for fitness (weight loss, weight gain, strengthening, flexibility) and for patients who are discharged from therapy but may benefit from continuing their exercise routine in a clinical setting. If you’ve been discharged from therapy and would like to continue your exercise routine with the help of our professional physiotherapist, inquire us.
