This specialized 45 minute aquatic therapy class is effective for pre and post rehabilitation. This class focuses on increasing range of motion, balance, and decreased pain associated with chronic conditions. The principal of hydrodynamics are perfect for providing a safe and effective environment for balance and neuromuscular challenges. During aquatic therapy, the buoyancy of the water, as well as the viscosity, offers a balance between decreased weight bearing and resistance that only a pool can offer.
