Aquatic Therapy

Vail-Summit Physical Therapy has an expert team of water physical therapists who are ready for you to take the plunge into the rejuvenating world of aquatic therapy. Also known as aquatic physical therapy or water physical therapy, this therapeutic approach takes place in a pool, or other aquatic environments. The buoyancy of the water provides support, reducing the impact on your joints and making it easier for you to move and heal. The resistance of the water builds strength.

When Would I Need Aquatic Therapy?

Anyone may find they need aquatic physical therapy. This type of therapy is excellent for a wide range of conditions. Whether you're recovering from surgery, managing chronic pain, or rehabilitating after an injury, aquatic therapy can be a game-changer. It's especially effective for conditions like arthritis, back pain, and post-stroke recovery. So, if you find yourself in any of these situations, consider taking the plunge.


Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy offers a boatload of benefits. It helps improve your flexibility, strength, and balance. It allows for a range of challenging moves that are harder to do on land. Plus, the water's resistance provides a fantastic workout without feeling like you're pushing yourself too hard. It's not just physical, though; the soothing properties of water will reduce stress and improve your overall well-being.

Olivia is an excellent physical therapist.  She consistently watches my movements and solicits feedback about my pain levels, adjusting her recommendations to maintain my progress without excessive pain. She is even addressing unresolved strength issues from my prior injury, and that knee is showing improvement as well.
