Aquatic Therapy

We use aquatic therapy as an adjunct to land-based therapy.

Our specialty-trained aquatic therapists will help patients reach their goals and provide treatments in a safe environment taking into consideration the transition to land-based functional activities. Water's natural properties create an ideal therapeutic environment. The buoyancy reduces body weight and provides support, which allows for greater movement with less pain.

Conditions we treat include but are not limited to: 

  • Neck or back pain
  • Strains, sprains, fractures, or dislocations
  • Injuries from multiple trauma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or scleroderma
  • Athletic or sports-related injuries
  • Recovery from the spine or joint replacement surgery

Aquatic physical therapy is typically prescribed for patients who have difficulty performing daily activities because of significant pain or weakness while moving or walking. This type of therapy also is recommended for those who, due to injury or surgery, have been advised to limit movement.

Why choose aquatic therapy? 

Aquatic physical therapy takes advantage of water's soothing properties to help patients start rehabilitation earlier, move more freely, and resume daily activities sooner. Our aquatic therapy program features:

  • Two depths—3.6" and 4'6" — to allow patients of all heights to get the maximum benefit of the water's buoyancy
  • The temperature between 89-90 and up to 94 degrees relaxes tight muscles and joints and increase blood flow to injured tissues to promote healing
  • Water jets for tight, sore muscles
  • A hydraulic chair lift or hydraulic Hoyer life, and  medically complaint double handrail staircase with railings to ensure safe, easy access
  • Deepwater suspended exercise depth at 6' (Folsom clinic)
