Start your rehabilitation in the water!
Rehabilitate without added pain or physical stress. Aquatic therapy removes the comprehensive force that your muscles and joints experience when on land. By eliminating the ‘jolting’ impact of land exercises, your movements become less strenuous and your body experiences less impact.
In some aquatic therapy cases, improvements in your rehabilitation are seen at a faster pace than just performing land-based exercises. Water therapy can be used to treat certain musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary and integumentary conditions. At most PHOENIX facilities offering Aquatic Therapy, the Aqua Ark® tank is used to provide this pool therapy.
Water’s unique properties, such as buoyancy, accommodative resistance and support, provide a comprehensive hydrotherapy rehabilitation experience for patients of all ages.
Not a swimmer? Not a problem. Aquatic therapy is for patients of all swim-levels.
Aquatic therapy helps improve:
- Function and independence
- Body mechanics and posture
- Gait and ambulation
I had the pleasure of being offered a position as a facility director at the same clinic that I had once started as an aide, and 12 years later, I’m just as pleased with the company and their ideals of quality vs. quantity care. PHOENIX also provides a generous yearly continuing education package as they are focused on all therapists advancing their skills in the field, and maintaining high standards for their employees. I would highly recommend working for PHOENIX to any therapist, new or experienced.
