Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is rehabilitation done in the water. The buoyancy, resistance and support of water are helpful for patients who might otherwise have difficulty with land-based exercises. This type of therapy is also beneficial for those who need to gradually increase their activities and weight bearing.

Aquatic therapy is appropriate for most musculoskeletal problems, including:

  • Function and independence, especially if immobilized for long periods of time
  • Endurance/conditioning
  • Body mechanics and posture
  • Flexibility
  • Strength
  • Gait and ambulation
  • Relaxation
  • Progressive weight bearing

Aquatic therapy is performed at Excel Physical Therapy's Krewstown clinic.
