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.

 

 

Our Aquatic therapists specialize in:

  • One on one instruction
  • Soothing water and lessened distractions
  • Lowered anxiety
  • Deep breathing work
  • Cardiovascular exercise

We believe our aquatic therapy program is unique and beneficial to our individuals for several reasons, including:

  • A strong emphasis on the individual’s interests to create and obtain objectives.
  • Active community involvement.
  • Creative adaptations of activities.
  • We address social, cognitive, physical and leisure needs of the individual.
  • Can guide the trans-disciplinary team in person-centered and community-based rehab.
  • We provide effective transition plans utilizing community resources and natural support to continue an active lifestyle post discharge.
  • The weight bearing load is reduced up to 90% depending on the water depth
  • The water supports joints and muscles, helping to improve balance
  • It’s easier to perform movements that a patient may not be able to complete on land
