Aquatic Therapy
Physical therapy services md

Aquatic therapy is treatment of joint, muscle, bone, or nerve problems done in the water. Exercises to improve flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination are done under the instruction and supervision of a licensed physical therapist. The water's natural buoyancy supports the body and counteracts the effects of gravity. Activities are less straining and less painful than when performed on land. Exercises may be done in shallow water or in the deep end of the pool using a flotation belt. The head and neck are above water, and the body remains vertical for most activities. No swimming ability is necessary. Patients who are fearful of water may do many activities while standing at the side of the pool, holding onto the edge if necessary. Patients with a history of heart or blood pressure problems will be required to obtain clearance from their primary physician before beginning aquatic physical therapy.
