Aquatic physical therapy at Franciscan Health includes water exercise and other low-impact activities performed in a therapy pool. Water training is an excellent rehabilitation tool for recovery from injury or disease or as a part of a wellness/fitness program.
Physical therapy has been recognized as a vital component in the successful rehabilitation of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. However, there may be times when a traditional land-based rehabilitation program is too challenging for individuals suffering from a diagnosis such as osteoarthritis. Aquatic therapy can prove to be a successful alternative for these individuals.
