Aquatic Therapy

Warm water therapy poolOur 24th Avenue location features a 20' x 25' warm water therapy pool for aquatic exercise therapy. The low patient to therapist ratio (1-2 persons per therapist) ensures optimum effects for your therapy. The water is kept at 88° to 92° F and the room temperature is kept at a warm 85°-92° F. The Therapy Pool is open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Patients who have finished therapy can continue to use the pool for exercise on a fee basis, by appointment. The pool usage is limited to five people at a time to ensure maximum space for you to comfortably complete your aquatic exercises.

The advantages of warm water exercise include:

  • Muscular relaxation
  • Reduced pain sensitivity
  • Decreased muscle spasm
  • Increased ease of joint movement
  • Increased muscular strength and endurance
  • Ideal temperature for fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Reduced gravitational forces
  • increased peripheral circulation
  • Improved respiratory muscles
  • Improves body awareness, balance and proximal trunk stability
  • Improved morale and confidence

Performing therapeutic exercises in the water has many advantages, including:

  • Buoyancy: the "unweighting" effect of the pool allows people to perform some activities in the water that they may be unable to perform on land, such as walking for someone with comprised weight-bearing on their legs or someone with back pain.
  • Resistance: the water provides a natural resistance to everyday movements allowing your muscles to become stronger.
  • Hydrostatic pressure: the light pressure of the water against the body combined with movement serve as a natural way to decrease swelling and edema.

  • Post surgical recovery
  • Pre-surgical strengthening
  • Motor vehicle accident recovery

Our professional staff can assist you in achieving your best possible recovery from a sports-related injury. Your customized rehabilitation program will include sport specific training to get you back on the field of play as soon as recommended and keep you there.
Additionally, therapists experienced in biomechanical assessment can provide you with information on what specific areas of your body may benefit from a combination of strengthening, stretching, and proprioceptive training. We want to assist you in improving your performance in sport, whether recreational or for competition, and help with preventing future injuries.

Mulligan Techniques

Principles of the Mulligan Concept

The Mulligan Concept is a manual therapy approach to restore functional motion and reduce symptoms. It utilizes gentle manual repositioning during active motions to promote optimal joint mechanics. Most of the techniques can be reinforced with home exercises and taping.

Urinary Incontinence Therapy

This program is for the treatment of stress and urge incontinence by learning appropriate exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and regain control of your bladder. The Urinary Incontinence Therapy uses biofeedback to learn how to exercise the correct muscles and, as needed, electrical stimulation. The program can work with functional activities you may participate in where incontinence currently interferes.


The Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP):
This is a treatment program that can help workers who have been injured recover by increasing their activity. Activity Coaching is standardized intervention delivered by professionals trained in the Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP®).

Activity coaching can help:

  • Reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress.
  • Promote re-integration into life-role activities.
  • Increase quality of life.
  • Facilitate return to work.
  • Prevent long-term disability.

The Activity Coaching process

  • The client and activity coach meet weekly for approximately 1 hour for a maximum of 10 weeks.
  • Meetings may be over the phone.
  • Initial stages focus on structured activity to help the client resume activities.
  • Final stages focus on activities that facilitate re-integration into the workplace.

Who may be a candidate?

  • Injured workers who have not returned to work around 4 weeks after the date of injury AND have not improved with early interventions such as active physical therapy.
  • Surgery is not likely in the near future.
  • Activity coaching is available for workers who do not speak English.
