This is the most overlooked therapy of all. Water is healing, anti- gravity, no pain, free movement, supports the body and does not agitate. It is soothing, comforting, and can help in so many ways. It can increase your movement, strength, endurance, cardio-vascular, balance, and gait stability. This is where the rubber meets the road so to speak. When the feet connect with the pool floor bottom many things begin to happen. Neuropathy is greatly served with this modality. Blood begins to enrich the nerves and restore their motion, strength and balance again.
If this sounds like you — we understand your frustrations.
It’s never ideal to deal with chronic pain on a daily basis.
Ever since the pain started, you’ve begun to feel limited and disconnected from your life.
All you want to do is get back to doing what you love without limitations or restrictions — but that’s hard to do when you can’t seem to find the relief you’re looking for.

During your evaluation, your PT might recommend aquatic therapy as a form of physical therapy to help you with your treatment. Keep reading to learn more about what aquatic therapy is and how it can help you.
Aquatic Therapy—What Is It?
Aquatic therapy, performed in a pool, is a great way for patients dealing with pain to positively impact their movement, and function, and increase their overall strength.
Aquatic therapy is a therapy performed in a pool and is a great way for patients that are dealing with chronic pain to increase their overall strength, function, and mobility.
A lot of the time, people wonder, how will aquatic therapy help me reduce the pain?
When patients perform various exercises in the pool, led by a professional physical therapist, these exercises help blood flow easily to muscles and problem areas that have been inflicted by stress and other issues. This allows your muscles to relax, promoting pain relief.
Aquatic therapy gives patients the confidence that they sometimes can’t achieve in-office on land. For example—if you’re dealing with balance issues and are afraid of falling, aquatic therapy wipes that fear away and helps provide stability for those looking to recover properly and safely.
Aquatic therapy is great for any type of chronic pain condition that you may be dealing with and may be recommended to you as a form of treatment during your initial evaluation with us.
