PT Specialties_Is Your Balance Setting You up For an Injury

Patient Spotlights What our patients have to say! “I was able to get a complete full range of movement/stretch and increased mobility.” “Pool therapy was definitely an eye-opener. Before I came to PTS I thought that land therapy was what I needed in the beginning, then I would go into the pool toward the end... wrong! In the pool, you don’t fight gravity, and I was able to get a complete full range of movement/stretch and increased mobility. Because my muscles had gone soft due to injury, the water was a great equalizer. I didn’t feel the effects of how hard I worked until I tried walking the steps to exit the pool, then the gravity hit me. What an eye-opener!

I had Jennifer for my therapist, who is an absolute sweetheart. She pressed me into working through my exercises and gave precise instructions. I was not able to coast through my rehab like I initially thought I would. It was a tough workout, but it was good! Soon I will be looking forward to my next knee replacement and working with Jenn in the warm pool.” - M.C. “Over the years I’ve increased my strength and flexibility and I continue to lose weight.” “I’ve been coming to Aqua-lates class for about 8 years now and I love it! Over the years I’ve increased my strength and flexibility and I continue to lose weight. Darlene is a highly motivated and professional instructor and she gives us different types of exercises that challenge our balance.” - E.A. “Aquatic Exercise class is important to me because it has helped to increase my strength and overall balance.” “Aquatic Exercise class is important to me because it has helped to increase my strength and overall balance. I love the social aspect too. I have meant good friends in this class and the best part is when we all get together for special aqua luncheons.” - S.K.
