Aquatic Therapy is now available at our Baton Rouge location featuring the Endless Pool WaterWell with under water treadmill

Aquatic therapy is performed in the water, aiming to rehabilitate patients after injury or those with chronic illness. It uses the resistance of water instead of weights, taking excess pressure off joints for better outcomes.
Patients who have had difficulty with traditional therapy often show improvement with aquatic therapy. The goal is to transition patients quickly from hydrotherapy to a land rehabilitation program.

Why is water sometimes better for therapy?

Aquatic therapy can make exercise easier and less painful, because the forces on weight-bearing joints are reduced. The warmth of the water helps reduce pain by relaxing tight or spasm muscles and increasing blood flow. The water resistance and special jets help patients strengthen muscles and improve cardiovascular performance.

Benefits of Aquatic Therapy Include:

• Accelerated rehabilitation
• Protects joints during exercise
• Reduced Stress
• Decreased swelling
• Trunk stabilization
• Improved gait or postural deviations
• Increased circulation
• Increased strength and endurance
• Increased range of motion and flexibility
• Increased balance and coordination
• Increased muscle tone
• Improved body mechanics with work and daily activities to avoid re-injury
