analysis & onsite rehab services
therapy is a type of physical therapy that involves performing exercises in the
water. Aquatic therapy is especially beneficial for people who have
difficulty with weight bearing activities due to arthritis, recent fracture,
sprains, or their weight. Exercising in the water provides several
benefits that exercise on land can not.
buoyancy of the water provides an unloading of the weight bearing joints of the
spine, knee, and hips. This is helpful for those who can not tolerate
on land due to joint pain. Water also provides assistance and resistance
while exercising so that one can progress through various levels of activity
while increasing strength.
therapy is beneficial for a variety of patient populations. People who
suffer from arthritis often have an improvement in range of motion from aquatic
therapy. Water unloads uncomfortable extremities while helping to loosen
stiff joints. Another patient population that has found aquatic therapy to
be quite beneficial, includes patients with fibromyalgia.
Rehab has 2 convenient locations to serve the Middle Tennessee Area.
