OrthoSport Therapy & Rehab offers a customized aquatic therapy program that is designed by your therapist depending on the type of injury, severity of symptoms, affected joints, and age.
Aquatic therapy is an excellent enhancement to standard exercise. By providing a warm and relaxing environment, this allows the patient to rehabilitate with less pain. The buoyancy of the water diminishes joint compression and allows for improved mobility. The pressure of the surrounding water assists with reducing inflammation and provides sensory input for postural awareness.
Individuals who experience low back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or who have had total joint replacements or sprains may greatly benefit from aquatic therapy.
- promotes relaxation
- increases circulation
- improves balance and coordination
- increases muscle strength

Be sure to consult your primary care physician before beginning an aquatic therapy program.
