The aquatic environment is a tremendous addition to the traditional therapy techniques and helps those who ordinarily could not do exercise. Unhealthy joints frequently need to be unweighted during the initial phases of restoring function. Our large pools are specially designed for aquatic therapy and staffed with certified aquatic specialists. Rehabilitation protocols are developed by our board certified orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists and undergo continual evaluations and revisions. Our doctors and therapists work as a team to help you get better faster.
