What Is Aquatic Therapy?
EFFEC TIVE TR E ATMENT FOR :
At Avenues Physical Therapy, our unique one-on-one aquatic therapy program provides patients with the ability to unload weight from their joints, while achieving more movement with less pain. Aquatic therapy supports the joints of the spine, knee, and hips, helping to reduce pain quickly while improving movement and balance. This translates into patients recovering quicker, especially in the beginning painful stages of an injury or post surgery. When combined with the skills and knowledge of our Physical Therapists, this type of therapy puts patients on a faster route to recovery.
Our aquatic therapy program helps to improve muscle strength, postural awareness, endurance, cardiovascular function, flexibility, pain-free range of motion, balance and coordination. We use the Cheyenne Aquatic Center’s state-of-the-art pool and private changing facilities have ease of access for all patients, including those needing assistance transferring from wheelchairs.
