Aquatic therapy is physical therapy that takes place in a pool under the supervision of our trained and licensed physical therapists. Performing therapy in water reduces stress on joints, muscles, and tendons while encouraging healing. Aligned Physical Therapy uses a state-of-the art exercise pool to aid patients in their treatment and recovery.
Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. For persons dealing with mobility or strength limitations, aquatic therapy provides a safe, low-impact treatment option.
The trained and licensed therapists at Aligned Physical Therapy treat the cause of your pain and injury, not just the symptoms. Aquatic therapy, along with traditional physical therapy and chiropractic care, can be used to help you live a fuller life with less pain.
