Aquatic therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that takes place in water, rather than on land. Because of the scientific properties of water, it allows many patients—and therapists—to accomplish goals they are unable to accomplish using conventional land-based measures, making it a highly effective treatment for a variety of otherwise difficult-to-treat conditions.
Some of the many benefits of aquatic therapy include:
In addition to the above, most patients find aquatic therapy relaxing, refreshing, and enjoyable—and many leave one appointment eager for the next.
The physical therapists in the Blue Sky Therapy family are committed to providing patients with personalized aquatic therapy tailored to meet their specific circumstances, needs, and goals.
All aquatic therapy sessions are conducted in a one-on-one setting in carefully regulated waters. Our pools are kept at a warm temperature that is both comfortable and conducive to therapeutic goals such as muscle relaxation, decreased pain, and decreased swelling.
