Aquatic Therapy Reduces Pain, Swelling, and Stress
Aquatic Therapy has benefited many of our patients, particularly those most in need of therapy, yet are unable to begin a traditional physical therapy program for various reasons. The body is able to move much more freely in the warm and supportive aquatic environment. Pain, pressure, and stresses on the body are reduced, as well as joint and soft tissue swelling. Additionally, the resistance of the water helps strengthen muscles much faster than in the air. Sessions may be used short-term or long-term as advised by your physician.
Our Aquatic Therapy Pool
The state-of-the-art aquatic therapy pool at Elkins Physical Therapy & Sports Injury Clinic is four feet wide and six feet deep. We keep our pristine pool set at 92 degrees Fahrenheit for your comfort. Stairs with a supportive railing, as well as a mechanical lift, are available. You do not need to know how to swim to benefit from aquatic therapy!
