Aquatic therapy at Advanced Orthopedics & Physical Therapy at 4700 Richmond Road, Suite 100, Warrensville Heights. In our state-of-the-art HydroWorx® pool with treadmill system, physical therapy exercises are possible for patients who are not able to participate in land-based exercises. With the water maintained at 94 degrees, the warm temperature will help to relax muscles and make stretching exercises easier. One-on-one physical therapy sessions in the pool are individually supervised by one of our qualified therapists.
If you or a loved one has an injury or condition that make weight-bearing exercise too painful or risky, such as arthritis, stroke, or recent surgery on the knee, hip, back, or neck, then pool therapy can be a highly effective way to get moving again and begin the rehabilitation process.
Benefits of Aquatic Therapy
Aquatic therapy reduces pressure on joints and the spine to provide greater mobility and decrease pain, which increases flexibility for a faster recovery. Because the water provides support for weight-bearing joints, treatment can begin sooner. The full range of benefits associated with aquatic therapy includes:
- Reduces joint stiffness
- Increases muscle strength, tone and endurance
- Stimulates healing and strengthening of injured tissue
- Reduces pain and inflammation
- Promotes stability
- Facilitates flexibility and range of motion
- Initiates walking in a low impact environment
- Replicates the proper biomechanics of land-based movements
- Improves cardiovascular endurance
For clients who are candidates for pool therapy, our physical therapists will develop a customized aquatic treatment program to decrease your pain and accelerate your recovery.
