Aquatic therapy is used to treat a variety of medical conditions and diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, strokes, Parkinson's disease, obesity and muscular dystrophy. The use of water allows you to function at levels that are not possible outside of this environment, which affords positive physical gains. The ultimate goal of aquatic therapy is to progress you to a more functional, land-based program.
An aquatic therapy plan of care can help a patient achieve:
Less pain with normal, everyday activity
Improved endurance throughout the day
Greater ability to perform the activities that matter most to you
Improved balance and coordination
