Aquatic Therapy combines the benefits of buoyancy and resistance to assist movement, progress strength, gait, and balance.
An initial evaluation by one of our Physical Therapists may be on land or scheduled right at the pool to establish your baseline. This can be performed at anyone of our locations most convenient for you. Following your evaluation you will be scheduled at one of our 4 pool locations: David D. Hunting YMCA downtown, located at 475 lake Michigan Dr. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504; the Visser YMCA located at 3540 Fairlanes Ave SW, Grandville, MI 49418, the new Mary Free Bed YMCA at 5500 Burton St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or our Wyoming office at 1535 44TH St SW, Wyoming, MI 49509. The therapist will be in the pool to instruct and assist you with an individualized exercise program. You are not expected to swim—walking and standing/sitting exercises are done without getting your hair too wet!
I did not know what to expect before my first visit here. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I looked forward to every visit. HJPT has such a positive and encouraging attitude which made each visit a blessing.Sue
