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!
Thank you for your help in my recovery. Wade and Marla have certainly helped me with their therapy after the knee surgery and the broken arm. All of you have been extremely kind as you guided me through the various exercises that have re-energized the many muscles that have helped me walk and get close to normal again. Your smiles, encouragements, the family atmosphere has been very helpful throughout the process. It starts with the smile and welcome that Kayla gives each time I walk in the door. Thanks so much to each of you for your caring attitude.Virgil
