Because we have vast knowledge about each sport's biomechanics and common injuries, we can help you get healthy and improve your performance.
Aquatic physical therapy and rehab
Aquatic (water) therapy provides a unique method of rehab.
Because water makes the body more buoyant, aquatic physical therapy places less stress on your joints. This can make it easier and less painful to complete rehab exercises.
It's a useful option for people who are recovering from surgery or for those who have:
- Chronic joint or muscle pain
Water therapy also:
- Promotes early range of motion.
- Increases flexibility.
- Tones muscles.
- Helps heal and strengthen injured tissues.
