Aquatic Therapy / Aquatic Exercise is an important tool for use with a variety of patients to accelerate the return to prior function. It can be the key to a speedy recovery. The pool allows patients to walk without full bearing their full weight so that these activities can be done early in the rehabilitation process.

The buoyancy of the water makes exercise easier on joints while the viscosity of the water allows multiple levels of resistance.

We incorporate unique manual therapy techniques and exercise equipment designed specifically for rehabilitation in the water. 
Aquatic therapy/ Aquatic exercise

makes exercise easier and less painful because the forces on weight-bearing joints are reduced.

The warmth of the water ( 86-90º F Water ) helps reduce pain by relaxing tight muscles and increasing blood flow.

The water-resistance and special jets help patients strengthen muscles and improve cardiovascular performance.

Water Exercise is ideal for the following conditions:​

  • Arthritis 關節炎

  • Back pain 腰痛

  • Fibromyalgia 肌纖維痛

  • Knee pain 膝關節

  • Leg pain腿痛

  • Scoliosis 脊柱側彎 

  • Sciatica 坐骨神經痛

Benefits of Water Exercise:​

  • Allows early intervention regardless of injury. 

  • Virtually eliminates pain during rehabilitation.

  • Decreases swelling due to the hydrostatic pressure of water.

  • Warm water can increase relaxation response.

  • Improves posture and body mechanics.

  • Development of muscle tone at a faster rate than most typical land exercises.

  • Hydrostatic pressure improves breathing capacity.
