Aquatic Therapy

What Are The Benefits of Aquatic Therapy?

Acquired brain injuries can often cause a dramatic effect on a person’s balance, gait, strength and flexibility.  These types of injuries can also cause muscle weakness, making it that much more difficult to exercise those muscles in order to regain strength. Aquatic therapy is a great way to build strength.

  • One on one instruction
  • Soothing water and lessened distractions
