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 any one of our locations most convenient for you.
Following your evaluation you will be scheduled at one of our 3 pool locations: The Visser YMCA, our Wyoming clinic, or the Club Fitness Center in Greenville.
The therapist will be in the pool to instruct and assist you with an individualized exercise program. You are not expected to swim—sitting, standing, and walking exercises are done without getting your hair too wet!
I appreciate the quality of their work along with how they are able to keep the atmosphere lighthearted. You are walked through every exercise you need to perform at home before leaving. There is even an app that walks you through the movements with animations to ensure you know exactly what to do at home between sessions!T.F.
