PATIENT SUCCESS STORY
Helps Improve Balance

Stand on one leg and maintain your balance. Next, hold your leg out in front of your body. Then return to original position. Maintain a slightly bent knee on the stance side.
“Over the past decade, Aqua Therapy at Bounce Back has made a life changing difference for me. During my most recent flare up of chronic back problems, I was barely mobile, walking only with a cane, and experiencing level 10 pain. By starting gentle exercises in the water, and progressing in a step-wise program, I am now walking without a cane on my own and on my way to being fully functional. None of this would be possible without the added support of being in water.The entire staff is always positive and encouraging and make a difficult time feel very worthwhile.” -Tammy B. “None of this would be possible without the added support of being inwater.”
