Pool therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. The fastest way to recover from pain/injury is to begin the rehab process, but often pain levels impact one’s ability to start. Fortunately, the pain commonly associated with rehab can be decreased or eliminated in water due to decreased weight bearing on joints.
It’s cannon ball time, leave your pain with your towel.
It is very hard to stay active, lose weight and exercise when you have pain with every movement. Our Pool Therapy Programs are an evidence-based and skilled practice of physiotherapy performed in a warm, salt water environment. Designed to get you the results you are looking for without the pressure on your joints.
Warm salt water exercise assists with circulation, muscle relaxation, increased range of motion and flexibility. The water’s buoyancy properties allow you to be active with less pain and stress on your joints and muscles and allow you to strengthen the supportive structures needed to decrease pain long term.
