1. Aquatic Therapy
Aquatic Therapy has our very popular back pain protocol, our needed aquatic balance training program, and our all-encompassing strength and endurance training program. Aquatic Therapy helps with core strengthening, supports the spine, helps to relieve knee, back, and hip problems, and helps with pressure. The non-weight bearing water takes the pressure off the back and helps with balance to ensure a safe session. The exercises performed in the water mimic exercises done on land, but the water helps to provide a safe surrounding.
- Back pain protocol: The water reduces weight bearing on your joints and spine making exercise pain free and enjoyable
- Aquatic balance program: When performing balance exercises in the water you reduce the risk of falls with an injury that you could face on land.
- Endurance and training program: Water’s magical properties including viscosity provides resistance throughout the entire movement creating a natural resistance. This in combination with using various exercise equipment provides a total body work out.
