Key Benefits of Aquatic Therapy
Aquatic therapy offers numerous benefits for patients of all ages and abilities. This is because the buoyancy of water reduces the impact on joints, making it a safe and comfortable option for individuals with arthritis, chronic pain, or those recovering from surgeries. The hydrostatic pressure of water also aids in reducing swelling and edema, leading to faster recovery and improved circulation. Additionally, aquatic therapy provides a unique opportunity for patients to exercise in a low-impact environment, improving strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness.
WESTARM’s Specialized Approach
WESTARM’s aquatic therapy program is tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. Our skilled therapists will assess your condition, work with you to set goals, and design a personalized treatment plan that fits your schedule. Not only that, but they utilize a range of techniques, including water-based exercises, manual therapy, and aquatic modalities, to maximize the benefits of therapy. Rest assured, our therapists closely monitor progress and make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal outcomes.
Conditions Treated by Aquatic Therapy
