Aquatic Physical Therapy
Aquatic Physical Therapy is rehabilitation, prevention and wellness for a wide array of patients in a safe aquatic environment under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist. This unique therapy employs specific protocols, but also may include
swimming strokes in conjunction with treatment techniques.
The physical characteristics of water are used to support, resist and/or assist in increasing flexibility and muscle strengthening while the injury heals. Aquatic therapy is not a modality, but a procedure requiring specific skills and training to implement the aquatic techniques correctly.
St. Joseph's/Candler offers aquatic physical therapy at our Candler Hospital outpatient location and The Landings Club outpatient location (for Landings Club members only). A physician's referral is required.
Aquatic therapy can help increase:
- blood flow
- muscle strength and tone
- range of motion
Additionally, it helps to reduce swelling and stress to painful joints. At St. Joseph's/Candler our licensed therapists work with patients to provide individualized care and a comprehensive treatment program.
