Aquatic Therapy

As the name suggest, Aquatic Therapy is an exercise based treatment that is performed in the water; typically in a pool.

For patients whose injury or chronic condition prevents full weight-bearing activity, the buoyancy of water and the gentle resistance it provides makes treatment possible when it might otherwise not be. In particular, Aquatic Therapy is very good for:

  • reducing pain & inflammation
  • increasing range of motion
  • improving strength & function
  • enhancing overall rehabilitation outcomes

Aquatic therapy can be particularly useful for patients with chronic conditions including:

  • arthritis
  • fibromyalgia
  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • back pain
  • joint pain (ankles, knees and hips)

Aquatic therapy is also good for those recovering from a:

  • sports injury
  • motor vehicle accident
  • stroke or neurological incident
  • some other form of trauma

It’s also excellent for losing weight & increasing fitness and for many older patients to receive gentle treatment and/or to stay active!

While Aquatic Therapy is typically performed in a swimming pool, is can also be provided through an underwater treadmill. While many of our clinics provide Aquatic Therapy in a swimming pool, only our Leaside clinic currently has an underwater treadmill (the HydroWorx 200).

    Beware of free food. Cake and pizza at an office potluck or random grocery store samples can sabotage your efforts to make healthier choices.
