Aquatic physical therapy is the practice of physical therapy by a trained and licensed physical therapist or physical therapist assistant in a water-filled pool. The buoyancy, support and accommodating resistance of the water enhance exercise and create a safe environment for progressive rehabilitation. The temperature of the water prompts muscle relaxation, facilitates stretch and generally reduces the sensation of pain.
Aquatic therapy is prescribed for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, recovery from injury or surgery, multiple sclerosis, back pain, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, balance or walking problems, and other conditions.
