Pool Therapy Carthage MS

Aquatic Therapy Pool

Increase Flexibility, Strength, and Stamina in Our Heated Pool

Because standing in waist-deep water reduces your body weight by 50 percent, aquatic therapy provides a more comfortable way to exercise that is gentle, safe, and effective. Available at Performance Therapy in Carthage, Mississippi, pool therapy is the perfect way to begin the rehabilitation process for patients with arthritis and joint pain, for those recovering from stroke, or for those who have had surgery on their back, neck, or lower extremity.

Why is this? Because aquatic therapy avoids putting too much pressure on the back and neck or hip, knee, and ankle joints, patients can begin treatment sooner. Reduced pressure on the joints, along with the moderate resistance of the water during exercise, promotes mobility, alleviates pain, and shortens recovery times.

Other benefits of pool therapy at Performance Therapy include:

  • Improved muscle strength
  • Increased flexibility and range of motion
  • Decreased muscle spasms and spasticity
  • Improved cardiovascular fitness
  • Increased circulation in the veins
  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Better coordination and balance

You will receive hands-on care from one of our specially-trained therapists to help make the most of your time in the pool and attain the maximum benefit from aquatic therapy. Your therapist will evaluate your limitations, mobility, strength, coordination, endurance, and balance while you are in the water. This will help to establish a proper plan of action for your treatment.
