Who is Aquatic Therapy For?

Aquatic Therapy can be helpful for anyone who has limited mobility, difficulty bearing weight or experiences excessive pain or discomfort during traditional therapy. Aquatic Therapy can be used to treat orthopedic injuries, auto injuries, arthritis, headaches, neck pain, back pain, chronic pain and many other conditions that cause pain or discomfort.

While aquatic therapy is often considered a back-up option to traditional physical therapy, it should be considered as a starting point for many patients, especially older patients and those with reduced mobility. Patients who have recently completed complicated surgery or who have experienced sports or work injuries can also find great benefits in aquatic therapy. In fact, many athletes will train in a pool to build strength and reduce the chance of injury.
