Aquatic therapy offers an alternative to conventional therapy and is appropriate for a wide range of conditions. Buoyancy, resistive forces of water and the effect of hydrostatic pressure are all principles that make treatment in the water a safe and effective rehabilitation tool.
The Parker Adventist Center for Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine is proud to feature aquatic therapy featuring a SwimEx pool, the same pool used by athletes with the Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies and U.S. Olympic Training Center. The temperature of this pool remains at a therapeutic 88 to 94 degrees Fahrenheit to allow for optimal comfort, relaxation and rehabilitation. The pool's individualized size makes it safe and comfortable for patients.
Diagnoses appropriate for aquatic therapy include, but are not limited to:
- Post-surgical spine or extremity fractures
- Extremity sprain, muscle or tendon injuries
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Parkinson's disease
- Back pain
- Sports-related vocal cord dysfunction
