Benefits of Aquatic Therapy are many.  Through
the water, the therapist can apply weight-bearing
and resistance in a controlled and progressive
manner.  We are able to increase body
awareness through exercise and functional
tasks.  The water also allows for buoyancy to
assist with movement.  Aquatic therapy can
prevent and retard muscle wasting and
contractures.  In the water, patients experience
decreased muscle tone and spasticity.

Aquatic therapy is a therapeutic procedure which
attempts to improve function through the application of
aquatic therapeutic exercises.  Almost anything that can
be performed on land can be performed in the water….
and more!

OUR POOL! We boast a spacious outdoor salt water
pool.  We chose salt to decrease exposure to harmful
chemicals and irritants.  Our pool is also heated to a
comfortable 90º F, to improve circulation and promote
relaxation
