Aquatic Therapy

Treatment can be performed in sitting and / or standing positions. Here at TOP Rehab, our aquatic therapy pool is 4 feet 2 inches deep and remains at a therapeutic temperature of 90 degrees. A patient may access the pool by stairs with 2 handrails or by a hoyer lift if necessary.

The Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is one of the safest, most comfortable treatment options a physical therapy patient will ever experience.

Common benefits of aquatic therapy are:

  • Decreased Pain
  • Improved Range of Motion and Flexibility
  • Improved Strength and Aerobic Endurance
  • Improved Walking Skills
  • Improved Confidence and Mental Status

Aquatic therapy takes advantage of:

  • Buoyancy - it eases the stress on your muscles and joints.
  • Temperature - the warm water soothes and relaxes the body.
  • Viscosity - the "thickness" of the water provides gentle resistance.
  • Turbulence - moving water gently challenges the body to maintain balance and control.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure - this pressure provides natural relief of joint and extremity swelling.

What the Patient will Need:

  • Swimsuit (or change of clothes)
  • Aqua Shoes (optional)
  • Towel
  • A robe to wear from the locker room (optional)
  • Cap (optional)

Our staff are specially trained to provide you with an individualized aquatic therapy treatment program. Aquatic therapy is covered by many insurance plans. Give us a call today to learn more!
