Services Provided

On your first visit an examination and evaluation will be performed on land to determine the aquatic services that would best serve your needs. At that time a physical therapist will determine a diagnosis and plan of care based on your impairments and functional limitations. After your examination, you will be oriented to the rehabilitation pool.

Treatment sessions are generally one-to-one and designed to improve circulation, increase strength, endurance, balance and coordination; decrease tissue swelling and protect joints. The exercise program will be customized to fit your needs.
