Exercising in water puts lets strain on the joints and muscles – a key benefit for patients with arthritis or other musculoskeletal conditions that make it painful to be physically active. That’s why Atlantic Rehabilitation offers aquatic physical therapy services in a safe, comfortable atmosphere.
Treatment begins with a thorough evaluation on land by a physical therapist. Based on the results, he or she will develop an individualized program aimed at achieving specific patient goals. Exercises may consist of simple swimming strokes with resistance gradually increased using paddles or weights to achieve optimal strength, balance, circulation, sensation and motor control.
Our pool is kept at a warm 92 degrees, is handicap accessible and only three to four feet deep, so that even those who cannot swim or are afraid of the water can participate. We also offer convenient locker rooms with dressing, bathroom and shower facilities.
