Aquatic Therapy Pool
Aquatic Physical Therapy In MS
Recover faster, feel better with low-impact movement in warm water
When you’re recovering from an injury – whether severe or minor – the gentle, safe, and effective healing powers of aquatic therapy can’t be beat.
The physical therapists at Performance Therapy in Carthage, Mississippi, will guide you through exercises in our state-of-the-art, heated aquatic therapy pool. This can increase your flexibility, strength, and stamina while alleviating pain and speeding your recovery time. That’s because standing in waist-deep water reduces your body weight by 50 percent, providing a much more comfortable way to exercise.
Aquatic 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 neck or back or lower extremity.
Low-impact exercises in warm water can prevent you from putting too much pressure on your back and neck or hips, knees, and ankle joints. Aquatic therapy allows you to begin rehabilitation sooner and heal faster. Reduced pressure on the joints, along with the moderate resistance of the water during exercise, promotes mobility without pain.
Benefits of aquatic 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.
Aquatic therapy is offered at the Performance Therapy clinic in Carthage, Mississippi. Feel free to call the Carthage office directly to schedule a tour or appointment. You can also call our main number, (601) 650-0002, or request an appointment online.
