Aquatic Physical Therapy

Aquatic physical therapy is rehabilitation that is done in a heated pool. Because water supports the body, it eliminates impact to stressed joints and decreases swelling so you can strengthen while you heal. Exercise instruction is given by licensed physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who are trained in aquatic therapies.

What are the benefits of aquatic physical therapy?

Aquatic physical therapy can increase:

  • Circulation
  • Strength and endurance
  • Range of motion
  • Balance and coordination
  • Muscle tone

Who can benefit from aquatic physical therapy?

Therapy is especially beneficial to those dealing with or recovering from:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain or fibromyalgia
  • Joint replacement
  • Neck/back pain
  • Orthopaedic dysfunction or scoliosis
  • Pregnancy
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury

*An order from a physician (or other healthcare provider such as a physician's assistant or nurse practitioner) and a physical therapy evaluation at St. Luke's are  required before participating in aquatic physical therapy.
