Our pool is unique, specially designed, and staffed to assist our patrons. Specific properties of the water make aquatic exercise a safe and effective exercise option. 

  • Buoyancy decreases joint compression forces leading to decreasing pain 
  • Safe balancing environment for those with a high fall risk
  • The flow of water provides resistance in all movement directions and exercise intensities. 
  • Warm water temperature increases circulation, flexibility and promotes relaxation. 

Therapy Pool details:

  • Heated to 91 degrees year-round
  • 35 ft by 40 ft with the shallow area at a depth of 3’6″ and the deep area at a depth of 6′

FAQs

When is Aquatic Physical Therapy available?

  • Appointment Hours: 
    • Monday – Friday
    • Call for instructor availability

What is aquatic therapy?

Aquatic therapy is the safest form of rehabilitation, especially for injuries that affect weight-bearing, because it takes place in the buoyancy of water and thereby removes impact and trauma from weight-bearing joints. Combined with traditional land-based physical therapy, aquatic therapy offers the quickest way to return to normal daily activities.

What if I can't swim?

Swimming ability is not required. We can use a variety of flotation devices for support in deep and/or shallow water. Instructors work closely with patrons until they feel comfortable in the water.

What if I use a wheelchair?

The pool is accessible by a chair lift or stairs with two rails. You may have an assistant/aide at no additional cost.

What if I just had or I am planning to have surgery?

Pool therapy fits perfectly into the well-designed post-surgical therapy program because water provides the safest place for protected, gradual and guided motion that does not overly stress the joint or site of repair. Patients can start pool therapy as soon as they are cleared by their physician and the incision site has healed. Patients who use the therapy pool program prior to surgery are more likely to return to full function much more quickly than those who have been inactive prior to surgery.
